Giving back to community

When we launched our first event five years ago, we never imagined we would welcome up to 1500 attendees at our events and organize four meetup groups and multiple spin-offs in Europe. Our secret? We welcome people from all walks of life in our community.

We know that supporting diversity inside and outside of IT takes more than mere statements, which is why our diversity scholarship programs are a key part of every conference we organize.

20 of 50 extra diversity scholarships sponsored


In addition to our self-funded tickets pool, we're actively working with partner companies to sponsor more diversity scholarship tickets. Help make the React community a better place–support our scholarship programme!

Sponsors

We would not be here, if companies like Facebook would not invest into Open Source so heavily, as well as React would not grow that much without support of multiple great companies from across the globe. We're really grateful for all the trust and support our partners shared with us.
