The React & GraphQL in Flip Flops is a hands-on, intensive, 6-day training. After a week of lectures and coding labs, you will move to the next level in React and GraphQL.
Instead of spending months to assimilate the knowledge from random sources — learn right things, in a right order from a team of experts that consult and train enterprise developers.
We will spend 6 days learning the best React, Redux and GraphQL practices. During the program-packed week you will learn advanced state management techniques with Redux and middleware, understand the shift from imperative to declarative programing, learn React Router v 4 and testing.
We will dive deep into advanced React concepts, learning how to use render callbacks, compound components and how and why to use context. You will learn also how to use and connect GraphQL client to the React applications.
When developers learn and grow every day, they become more motivated, more productive and more independent.
In the normal scheme of things, they work hard the whole day and then spend their time with friends and family. There is not much time left for learning and self-development.
That's why we created the most developer-friendly space in Las Palmas where they can focus and learn. With all distractions taken away, they will:
We will take care of your developers from the moment they arrive to Las Palmas until the last day of the bootcamp. We will spend long hours working. To recharge the batteries, we'll sample local tapas in the Old Town, do some surfing or body boarding, and go hiking in the heart of the island.
Your developers will return refreshed, with loads of bright ideas and a set of new skills, ready to use the newly-acquired know-how in your company's next project.
It was by far the best meetup/conf/bootcamp I've been so far. Location, location, location. Coding on an island is a brilliant idea. The trainers were very skilled!

With plenty of accommodation, a bunch of coworking spaces with fast WiFi, amazing beaches, excellent surf conditions, and a mild climate, why wouldn’t we want to have a coding bootcamp in Las Palmas?
According to Weatherwise, Las Palmas has some of the world’s best weather with plenty of sunshine, and mild temperatures. The city also has a significant lack of tourist compared to the south of the island.
Soppa de Azul is different from any other co-working spaces. It is a magical place and and an art gallery full of sculptures and paintings. This is where we are spending most of the day learning to code!
This unique space for creative people is located just 200m from the beach front, shops, a food market and restaurants. It offers not only desks to get your work done but also lecture room. Alecs, the owner, is a fascinating person, a painter and an entrepreneur - extremely helpful and responsive.
We'll meet at 8:45am to grab a cup of coffee and the class starts at 9:00am. We'll cover 2 topics before lunch and then cover another one or two in the evenining depending if it's a day with a longer break or not. Each topic will consists of the 30 minutes long lecture and a following coding lab, when you will put into practice what you've learned. Instructors will assist you if you get stuck and will help you to move forward with the project.

Although the bootcamp starts on Monday, you may arrive already on Saturday if you want to join the hiking trip to the heart of the island and visit the Maspalomas' sand dunes. It's completely valuntary but the stunning interior of the island is a must to see. Check out this video.
