Announcing our speakers for Byteconf React Native 2018

Byteconf React Native started as a "micro-conf": a half-day conference with three or four speakers, taking place on December 14th, 2018. It became pretty clear immediately once we opened the Call for Papers for this conference that there were so many great talk submissions, from so many folks that we admire in the React Native community, that we needed to think a little bigger.

Byteconf React Native will bring six (!) incredible speakers from around the world together to chat about things like, of course, React Native, but also tools like GraphQL and AWS Amplify, as well as explorations into AR/VR, machine learning, and more. It's a fun lineup of talks at a variety of experience levels: whether you're a seasoned React Native developer, or haven't yet written a single line of RN code, we'd love to have you attend.

Byteconf conferences are always free and streamed online, via Twitch. We'll make the videos available on our YouTube channel as well: be sure to follow us there!
