React is a powerful rendering tool capable of quickly producing complex user interfaces. To demonstrate that, we will have a bit of fun by creating a configurable 2-player game of “N in a Row” using React and Redux. The goal of the talk will be to demonstrate React’s speed and ease of use, but also to provide exposure to all the basic building blocks of a typical React application at a small scale.

The starting boilerplate will be available online, and attendees are encouraged to follow along!
