Managing your Node dependencies at scale with yarn
Managing dependencies is a hard problem. This talk will cover the Node philosophy of dependencies, dive into dependency and package management, semantic versioning, version collisions, the role of npm in the success of Node, the advent of yarn, the advantages over npm, and its powerful features to manage large Node projects.
Adam is Node.js Dublin's youngest speaker!
Adam started using Node 2 years ago, and now uses it every day, alongside C++ and Rust. He loves math, kayaking, computers and his dog Dave.
Write You A Static Site Generator
The JAM stack has become a popular way of developing sites. In this talk, Adam will go through the process of building a static site generator. He will talk about the choices to make when designing your own, why NodeJS is well suited for this, and will cover actually writing one in the talk. Lastly, he will discuss the current state of the JAM stack, and when you should think about using it.
