Scaling a User Interface

A scalable user interface requires more than smartly written HTML, CSS & JavaScript. These days, navigating through the hundreds of front-end tools, libraries, and frameworks can be a daunting task for even the most talented developers. And yet, what’s often overlooked are the things that really matter—like performance, maintainability, and flexibility. In this talk, Development Team Lead Scott Spencer will focus on the hurdles and lessons that the Achievers UI team have encountered while developing their high-traffic Employee Engagement Platform. He’ll dive into critical tools and best practices and explain the value of stepping back and understanding the bigger picture.

Scott is a Development Team Lead at Achievers, most recently responsible for all things mobile. He's also helped grow the Achievers platform UI from simple, event based javascript to a robust, API-driven modular architecture. In his spare time, Scott can be found strolling down #DuWest with his crew... also known as his wife Kristen, baby boy Nate, and goldendoodle Leo.

Doors open at 6:00 and talk starts at 6:30 sharp. As always, drinks and snacks will be served.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
