React Amsterdam is a celebration of good things coming together:
React that rocks and spring in Amsterdam that blossoms
A full-day, two-track conference on all things React, gathering Front-end and Full-stack
developers across the globe in the tech heart of Europe. We're coming
back with a new gig on April 10-12, 2019.
Mark your calendars for the biggest React community event.
Same as last year, days before (and after) the main event, we'll host a training day, with three workshops on advanced React, GraphQL as well as a crash course on React Native.

React Amsterdam Open Source Awards
Repeating the tradition, we'll run React Open Source awards again in 2019 to highlight the most exciting and innovative projects of past year, highlighting lesser known projects form independant authors and maintainers.
- Breakthrough of the year
- Fun side project of the year
- Most impactful contribution to the community
- Productivity booster
- The most exciting use of technology
We would not be here, if companies like Facebook would not invest into Open Source so heavily, as well as React would not grow that much without support of multiple great companies from across the globe.
We're really grateful for all the trust and support our partners shared with us.
