What we're about

The Brisbane JavaScript group - BrisJS for short.

We do talks every first working Monday of the month, and periodic social meetups between.

Our mission is to provide a community and a voice for Brisbane's JavaScript technology community. We aim to further everyone's knowledge and explore all aspects of technology for all skill and interest levels.

BrisJS is open to ALL people in tech, and always encourages having new speakers. Please help us and represent the cool things are going on in Brisbane's JS and web sphere.

Hey BrisJS! This March event (by total chance) is your one-stop-shop for testing in the world of JS and the web! We have a panel of entertaining talks and Q&A opportunities; so lets get into it! Enjoy our sponsored pizza by PCCW Global and drinks by Just Digital People while networking with your peers, as is standard at our famous events 🍕 Please remember to submit for some talks scheduled in the months ahead! Check the links near the bottom. Please share the lineup with everyone and RSVP to join us on Monday night, as they may have missed it. ⏱Schedule: 6:15 PM - Arrive & mingle - wait at Gallery Level elevators for security to let you up (same level as the train station) 6:30 PM - Welcome & introductions by Kevin Vanderbeken 6:45 PM - Talks begin… 🧪Automated Testing: Beyond End to End Testing - Dallas Clarke (@dallasclark) - 30min: Think you've nailed your end to end strategies, or need some inspiration on what's on the horizon? This session will cover other automated testing strategies to minimise efforts in your teams, find issues sooner, and deliver high-quality products. Dallas will also take us through automatic visual testing, automatic accessibility testing, and creating code quality gates. ⏱Networking during intermission - 25min: Pizza thanks to PCCW Global's Brisbane team & Drinks thanks to Just Digital People :-) 🧪When to TDD - Kory Nunn (@KoryNunn) - 20min: When it comes to test driven development, there are some vocal camps that will tell you TDD is awesome in their flow, but there's certainly others that don't see the benefit of placing these up front conditions in their situation. Kory will explore some of these merits, but even if you picked a side already, as he says; maybe both sides could be wrong? 🧪Intro to testing with Cypress - Ashley Davis (@ashleydavis) - 10min: In this talk Ashley gives an overview and demonstration of using Cypress for testing web pages and REST APIs. 🥽Functions as a Service (FaaS): What's the Appeal? - Andrei Hawke (GH ahaw021) - 10 min: Andrei comes to us today to explain why FaaS may be the preferred approach in the future for your dev needs, and explain it from the devops point of view. What is it and how can you start now?... how can devs help Ops specialists too? (with use cases based on Microsoft Azure stack) --------------- ❓Why not volunteer to speak next time?
