Hello, Reactors! We are excited to announce our ReactJS meetup on Thursday 31st May at OK Thess! We have our amazing speaker, Pavlos talking about brand new layout system in CSS, CSS Grid.

It's not a framework or library - it's an addition to the language that allows us to quickly create flexible, two-dimensional layouts.
