Using React in a Ruby Project to Dynamically Generate PDF Documents
Panos Matsinopoulos says:
Recently, in one of our Ruby on Rails projects in which we wanted to generate PDF documents for invoices, we decided to use another programming language and technology: React and AWS Lambda.
In this talk, we will be covering how we did it, what were the challenges and what pros and cons over the incumbent tools for Ruby.

After the formal part of the meeting, if you want to keep on LRUGging a handful of us usually stay on the zoom call for a bit of a chat. It's not quite the same as hanging out together IRL, but it's better than nothing while things remain pandemic-y. If you have some ideas about an alternative approach, then let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Secure your place
Even in a virtual world there are limited places for attending the meeting so you need to register via eventbrite. The link to the zoom meeting will only be sent to registered attendees on the day of the meeting, around about 6pm. Keep an eye out for the email and check your spam just in case.
Do prepare yourself in advance by downloading the zoom client.
