We're a very inclusive meetup representing a diverse community of awesome engineers! >:D
Our talks for this event include ...

- Bhavesh Desai, Head of UI Development - Adaptive - A deep-dive of Reactive Trader, a fully open-source, real-time FX trading application, and the technical approaches used to produce real-time trading platforms for Adaptive's clients.

- Danese Cooper, Head of Special Initiatives - NearForm – Getting the most out of InnerSource in a regulated industry - InnerSource takes the lessons learned from developing open source software and applies them to the way companies develop software internally to increase collaboration and break down silos. Drawing on her past experience as Head of Open Source for Paypal, Danese will share tips on how to put in place a community of practice around InnerSource that is perfectly suited to the needs of highly regulated companies such as Financial Services.

- Tim Dinsdale, European CTO - OpenFin - A lightning fast and technical introduction to OpenFin. In this talk Tim will touch on some key parts of the architecture, with particular reference to React. We will look at how to get up to speed with some of the core concepts, and where to look for more details.

- Mark Jose, Technical Principal & Dean Kerr, Senior Developer - Scott Logic - Introducing: React Hooks for OpenFin - There's been a lot of excitement around the addition of Hooks into React. We work with OpenFin a lot, so it made perfect sense that we created a OpenFin React Hooks library. The good news is we totally Open Sourced it!

- John Kottis, Software Engineering Lead - Lloyds Banking Group - JavaScript Invaders - With Comic Con season close approaching, John's taking us retro with JS Invaders, a JavaScript, HTML and CSS version of Space Invaders to prove banking engineers are not only awesome with technology, but also wonderfully creative >:D
