An important update on Chain React 2022

Abstracted code blocks overlapping with touchpoints
TL;DR We’re pumping the brakes on Chain React 2022 because we believe true magic happens when we’re together face-to-face! So we're cancelling for this year. Details are available on a special episode of React Native Radio and the React Native Newsletter.

Chain React: Doing It the Right Way

The best part about Chain React is the connections we make when we’re together. Whether that’s spontaneously chatting in the hallway in between sessions, grabbing a bite or a drink in the evening or meeting up to imagine the next big thing, it’s human-to-human bonding that makes this event so special.

We are strong believers that this connection doesn’t happen through a screen or in a virtual conference room. We host Chain React in person, in a thriving location because that’s where relationships, ideas, and conversations come alive. When this location is surrounded by shutdown venues and restrictions, it limits the conference’s potential — it becomes a shell of what it’s supposed to be.

For us, it’s all or nothing.

So we’re hitting pause on Chain React until we can do it right, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down. There are a ton of ways to stay connected and tight-knit as a community.
