Hello fellow Reactors,

September has come and we are back in town. We hope you had a great time during the summer and that you are ready for some (Re)action!

On the 15th of September we are going to have the first ever React JS meetup in Greece!  We are happy to invite you all for an evening full of code, talks and beers. Our venue is the “JAVA” auditorium on the ground floor of “The Hub”, situated in Alkminis 5, in Petralona, close to Benaki Museum in the center of Athens (map).

We are really looking forward to an exciting year ahead and to seeing all of you there!!
