What we're about


This is a group for all the JavaScript developers that are interested to learn more about JavaScript, share development experiences or techniques and why not, find new friends to share our passion!

I started the group in order to discuss the latest JS libraries and/or frameworks, sharing open source projects, discuss about best practices, exploring new possible techniques to apply inside our projects or talking about tools we are using in our projects pipeline.

If you are passionate about these things or if you are just curious to meet new people passionate about JavaScript feel free to join this community!

Modern Yarn & mocking !== ‘hard’. Mocking like it’s 2019

Hi JSLovers This month we are going to have an exceptional event with 2 great speakers, one from Yarn's core team and another one from DAZN's engineering team. Modern Yarn Almost two years and a half after its release, it's time to reflect on Yarn, what it achieved, and what the future holds. We'll talk about package management best practices in the fast-evolving JavaScript ecosystem. Bio: Maël started at Facebook two years ago and immediately started to work on Yarn. His most recent work is Yarn Plug'n'Play, which removes node_modules once and for all. Maël Nison Core dev @yarnpkg, JS dev at @facebook, opinions are my own, etc. “Science isn't about why, it's about why not” - Cave Johnson mocking !== ‘hard’. Mocking like it’s 2019 Testing is considered as standard practice in our industry. We use libraries to mock dependencies to test our code in isolation (e.g. services used in our React components). We take them for granted, assuming that they function correctly, probably by magic! Are mocking libraries “magic”? Join me to find out what libraries, such as Jest, are doing under the hood as we write our own mock testing library. Mattia Assogna Mattia is a software engineer at DAZN. He loves shell scripting; he literally lives in the terminal (that’s probably why he uses VIM). Other than getting his hands dirty with React, RxJS and Mobx, he is also passionate about cyber security and Motorbikes.
