VR, React & Not Christmas

Some people might be telling you that Christmas is just round the corner… Though actually, it's miles off - you've got ages to buy presents. And decorations, christmas trees, etc; sometimes it's good to wait.

What you should be getting excited about is JavaScript.

This month we've got a couple of wonderful talks: Max will be telling us about VR hacks with Google Cardboard, and Roger will be explaining how they use React in Zegami (Roger showed a demo of Zegami at our summer Show & Tell - it's fantastic).

We'll also be talking about our 2017 events - so if you're interested in knowing what's next for JSOxford and how to get involved, you should totally come and chat about it.

(there may be mince pies and mulled wine.)


Cardboctober: Making VR experiences for Google Cardboard with JavaScript daily in October – Max Glenister

In October Ben, Pete and Max built something every day for Google Cardboard using Javascript.

In this talk Max will talk about how he planned and executed a month of hacks, what worked (and what didn't!) and what he got out of the challenge.


Make your UI flexible with a plugin architecture, featuring React – Roger Noble

When building Zegami (a data visualisation tool http://www.zegami.com) we wanted to allow anyone to be able to add their own custom functionality and enhancements. This presented a challenge for us to construct an interface - both visually and in code, that developers could approach with a minimal learning curve.

This talk will discuss some of the decisions we made as well as a practical demonstration of how this same approach could be used in any application.

    Yo! We mentioned the Slack channel a couple of times. We use Slack to chat about everything from JavaScript to knitting, and some of the other Oxford-based tech meetups are there too. Head over to https://digitaloxford.herokuapp.com/ and pop in your email address. Make sure you join the #jsoxford channel 👍

    Just a quick note, we're not in our usual room at the story museum. We're in the Long Room, as you go into the courtyard it's on the right (we held our summer of hacks events there).
