THIS MONTH'S SPEAKERS
Yaser Adel Mehraban - Dev Advocate (Telstra Purple)
New year, new Vue
Front end development world has been a true roller coaster throughout the recent years and especially in 2019. Frameworks and libraries towered like skyscrapers everywhere.
But there was one in specific which gained a lot of attention despite the fact that there were already some major players involved. Its name was Vue.js.
In this talk we will go through some basics, comparison to other frameworks and some points on when to with which one at the end if time allows.
Sarah Levins - Junior Developer
"All words are made up" - My journey into tech
How do you know when you're using 'tech jargon'? How can you tell when a junior dev doesn't know what the hell you're talking about? How do you make them feel comfortable enough to ask?
This time last year I couldn't tell you what a style sheet was, and didn't know my computer had a CLI. Now, I've just completed the 5 month SheCodes Plus program and am transitioning into a career in tech. I will share stories of my adventures and struggles with learning new languages, and all the fun emotions that junior developers go through.
Anton Ball - Front End Developer (Seven West Media)
Wouldn’t it be great if you could tell the future? You would know exactly what tech decisions to make and when. Failing that, let’s look at what 2019 provided for Front End Developers and use that to predict what that means for Fenders in the year ahead. We won’t know if it’s right for some time but it’ll be fun anyway.
