Front End Sheffield: February 2019

Sheffield Technology Parks

Our event is free and inclusive; we welcome people of all backgrounds and experience levels to join. We will be checking in people at the door so be sure to sign up online. Before you attend, please read our code of conduct: https://github.com/amyvbenson/FrontEndSheffCoC ---------- This month we'll be welcoming two speakers: Andy Carter (@drmonkeyninja) : The Dramatic History of the Web Browser Andy is a senior developer at Evoluted New Media and mostly works with Laravel and CakePHP. Before working full-time in the web industry he worked in Quantum Optics research as a theoretical Physicist. Microsoft announced at the end of 2018 that it was building a new browser based on Chromium. It will join an ever growing list of web browsers that are built on Google's open-source Chromium project. With Google Chrome's own share of the browser market continuing to grow does this mean Google have won the 'browser wars' and are comparisons with Microsoft's once dominant Internet Explorer fair? Now seems like a good time to re-examine the history of the web browser. Starting with its humble beginnings amongst the international physics community we'll trace the browser’s journey through three decades of progress up to the present day. It's a story rife with competing corporations, lawsuits and surprise plot twists. Does history repeat itself and what could happen next to the web browser? ---- Amanda Cookson (@amandacookson) : 9/10 conversations miss the mark Amanda is an experienced professional coach and consultant who believes that everyone has the right to flourish, reach their full potential and feel happy at work. In her coaching practice Amanda combines understandings from neuroscience, positive psychology and Conversational Intelligence to help founders and leaders thrive. Amanda co-founded Northern Value Creators, a niche consultancy that works hand in hand with ambitious digital & creative businesses to develop leaders, improve teams & help agencies win more of the work they love. An average person speaks 7,000 to 20,000 words in a given day, yet research suggests that 9/10 conversations miss the mark. During this talk you will find out which conversational traits are more likely to get doctors sued and take partners to the divorce courts. You will get an introduction into the neuroscience of conversations [C-IQ] and find out how your words have a direct impact on other people’s brain chemistry. If you want to improve your relationships and inspire openness, trust and creativity in others - this talk is for you. ---------- Post-meetup social Location to be confirmed ---------- Running order 6:15pm - Doors open (please sign in at reception) 6:30pm - Welcome 6:40pm - Andy Carter 7:00pm - Break 7: 10pm - Talk 2 7:40pm – Open mic 7:45pm – Social
