JuniorDev Code & Tell - A Night of Technical Talks & Coding
=====================================

1) Yeo Kheng Meng
Title: Lessons from coding a old-new app: Slack for Win 3.1

I built a Win 3.1 app during a company hackathon.

Without the benefit of modern libraries and languages, I had to read up and take care of many low level details, socket programming, HTTP, JSON parsing, UI design in code all under tight memory constraints. Nevertheless, it was a terrific lesson in understanding how things work under the hood.

I'll share my learnings and process for how an old-new app can be created with the aid of modern tools and hindsight of old technologies. And perhaps what lessons can it offer us today.

2) Ong Chin Hwee
Title: Exploring Seasonal Insights from Singapore Weather Station Data

Most of the world experience the four seasons, but how many seasons does a tropical country like Singapore have? We can get such insights from publicly-available weather data; however, we need to write scripts to make API requests for retrieving the data needed for analysis.

In this talk, I will be sharing about my approach in scraping Singapore weather station data from Data.gov.sg APIs for a user-defined time period. With the extracted data, I will also be using a data-driven approach to investigate the weather trends and seasons over the past few years, and explore how these insights could help us in predicting future weather trends.
