Ongoing agenda:

6:00 - Food and merriment

6:30 - Lightning Talks

7:00 - Main presentation – "JS Frameworks & Low Code Tools" by Tim Murphy of Brook

Over the last five years, Javascript developers have been inundated with a steady stream of changes to ECMAScript specifications, new and changing frameworks with reactive/composable components, package managers, module bundlers, and server side rendering.

While these technologies coupled with improved browser performance have enabled Javascript developers to create larger, more maintainable client side applications with better state management, there is no question that our development environments haven’t kept pace.

Tim Murphy from Brook will walk through the current state of Javascript tooling, and why a code editor, terminal, and a browser with dev tools open isn’t a really great development environment.

He will explore the options that are becoming available in the no code / low code space, and discuss how some of these tools are actually integrated development environments meant to provide a better developer experience by adding a visual ui design layer, data visualization for the flow of properties between components, simulated api calls, data type enforcement, unit/integration testing, enhanced accessibility, and better collaboration between designers, front end developers, and server side developers.

7:45/8:00 - Free time to discuss, network, hack, etc.

8:30 - Disperse!

Location Notes:

This area is heavily served by public transit – take the 6, 17, or 21 to the Uptown Transit Center.

On-street parking, or use of the paid Mozaic parking ramp is recommended.

For the cyclists among us, there are bike racks facing the greenway as well.

Please reach out to the organizers ([masked]) if you would like to use the building's accessible entrance or parking, as we can make additional arrangements.

It's always a great event, hope to see you there!
