About Event

👉 UPDATE: Unfortunately Lee Robinson won’t be able to travel to Australia, nor hang out at React Sydney on Monday, as a result.

Taking his place will be Robin Yoong (@robinyoong) – Vercel’s Head of Sales Engineering for Asia Pacific and Japan.

Agenda is otherwise unchanged, so see you all on Monday evening at Atlassian HQ.

Vercel is taking over the next React Sydney event, with special guest Robin Yoong – Vercel’s Head of Sales Engineering for Asia Pacific and Japan, talking Next.js with Jed Watson from Thinkmill.

We'll also hear from Jed about Keystatic — an exciting new (and Australian-made) open source CMS designed from the ground up with Next.js and Vercel in mind.

Meet us at Atlassian HQ (363 George St) from 6pm on the 30th of October.



We’re a diverse and welcoming React community who gather to learn from and hang out with our peers. This meetup is relevant for React newbies and veterans, as well as folks in development-adjascent practice areas. Talks start at 6:30pm. Feel free to arrive any time after 6:00pm.

Come as yourself, or bring along some buddies, as we hang IRL together, as the React Sydney community. Expect to make friends, eat pizza and have a drink (alcoholic or not)
