React Workshop (9:00PM - 12:00PM):
Description: From 9:00am to 12:00pm, Chariot's Ken Rimple has a fun workshop in store for you. He'll bring a GraphQL server Quizzo-style application, and you'll create a front-end for it in React. Along the way you'll learn how React components work, how you can build components functionally with hooks, interface with GraphQL and issue GQL queries, subscribe to game play messages, and answer questions to play the game. At the end, if all goes well, everyone can point their clients to Ken's server and play the game together.
To secure your spot for the workshop, you must purchase the "All Access Pass" that grants you access in to the workshop room. Hurry, because spots are limited!
Please make sure to come with your laptop fully charged.
