Berlin Events: React.js at Coffee & Code 0.16 on August 13th

The next Coffee & Code is coming up next weekend. After Daniel gave us an introduction to Linux at the last meetup, we again have a topic we will focus on.

If you have a topic to suggest to focus on in one of the upcoming meetups, let us know in the Free Code Camp Berlin Facebook group.
