Past Conferences

A recap of Chain React



The second Chain React conference brought the React Native community back to Portland, Oregon for another year of talks. In 2018 three workshops were added to the schedule the day before the conference. Workshops were held at the Benson Hotel, a historic spot in downtown Portland, and included tracks for beginners and advanced topics. Check out the highlights below.
