Presentations for March

Jesse Collis @sirjec - The Month That Was

A light hearted look back at the industry happenings since our last meetup.

Tristan Ludowyk @tristandl - Side effects with ReSwift and Rx: Introducing redux-observable

Redux is a great way to avoid problems that arise from state mutation spread throughout your code. It makes changes to state declarative using one-way data flow. Rx is a multi-platform library that provides functional and reactive (although strictly not functional reactive) programming techniques.

In this talk we will show how we have leveraged both these libraries to create an Rx Observable of both the whole Redux app state as well as individual components of the state, meaning you can do things like reactive bindings in the UI. Furthermore, we will see how redux-observable allows us to use reactive programming and composition to create async effects that dispatch actions to the redux reducer(s).

Erica Chan - What the hell is Technology Law?

A quick introduction to Technology Law and key issues for developers to think about.

Jinju Jang @arle13 - Using Lottie

The Airbnb engineering team have released a library for converting After Effect animation to JSON file, that you can use for native apps. I'm going to share my short experience of using Lottie for an iOS project.
