For a long time Javascript didn't exist, then for a relatively short time it was only in browsers, but now it's, like, everywhere.

We're going to talk about some of the places that javascript is, that aren't a browser.

Zero to MVP in 5 days with Electron – Richard Patching

Learn how I scratched my own itch and shipped an MVP cross platform desktop app in 5 days. I'll be sharing my battles with Windows and how I struggled to the last hour to get installers and auto-updating in (plus my solutions). This talk contains lots of code, coffee, javascript, angular all wrapped up in electron. Essentially every tool a pretentious hipster would use if they were shipping an app.

    HOWDY. We grabbed some pictures from last night (we had a go-pro in the corner) - just wanted to check that everyone was happy with those going online before we post them.

    Send me a direct message if that’s a problem at all - I was planning to post it tomorrow if that's all great.

    Everyone looks super cool.

    Also, as Rich mentioned; you should totally come and talk at JSOxford - if you're interested, log the subject you're interested in talking about at, or ping @jsoxford on twitter.

    Great talk from Rich last night. Sorry I couldn't stay longer. Left my water bottle: clear with a black filter. Anyone find it? In case you can only read emoji: 🚨😿⛲
