NLHTML5 × Fronteers, 2018 edition
🎉 We're back for another Fronteers Conference pre-event! 🎉 Are you coming to Fronteers and are you early in town? We have something very special for you! On October 2nd we're back at Werkspot, for three very interesting talks with two alumni from the 2017 edition of Fronteers Conference. Just a short walk away from the Fronteers venue, you can reach Werkspot in the heart of Amsterdam. Not going to Fronteers? No worries, you can still join us! (but why not buy a ticket for Fronteers, while you're at it 😉) 🗓 Event Schedule: • 18:30 Doors open, there will be food (vegetarian + vegan) • 19:00 Introduction by the organisers • 19:15 Jonathan Hall • 19:45 Ash Kyd (@AshKyd) • 20:15 Break • 20:30 Ruben van der Leun (@rvdleun) • 21:00 Drinks and snacks • 22:00 Room cleared ------------------------------------------------------------------ 🎤 Jonathan Hall — Go easy on your browser Node.js isn’t the only way to use the same language on the server and in the browser. More and more languages are now being supported in the browser, by way of transpiling either to JavaScript or Web Assembly. In this presentation, I will talk about my experience writing Go for the browser with GopherJS, why you might wish to do the same, and how to get started. I will also talk about current development in this area, and the state of official WASM support in the Go compiler. About Jonathan: Jonathan Hall is Manager of Software Development at Bugaboo, and a former backend developer, who sometimes dabbles with frontend technologies, and enjoys making problems more difficult than necessary. ------------------------------------------------------------------ 🎤 Ash Kyd — More than meets the eye; 4 tips for accessible animation Animation is everywhere these days and is an important communication tool in interface design. But for folks with attention, vestibular, or seizure disorders there can be a downside to too much motion, so how can we balance the two? In this talk, you'll learn about some gotchas in motion design and four concrete steps to improving your user experience. About Ash: Ash Kyd is a Javascript developer originally from Brisbane, Australia, who recently moved to Amsterdam for work (at Nxchange) and the wealth of local cheese. He has an interest in all things frontend, and loves pushing the boundaries of existing tech to make cool things for the web. ------------------------------------------------------------------ 🎤 Ruben van der Leun — Instant XR, just add browser With VR starting to taking off and AR becoming more and more of a thing, there is one particular industry that can play an important part in its adaption: The Web. This talk will cover why the browser is an effective tool to run XR applications and what tools are available to craft these virtual experiences, using three.js, AFrame, react-360 and Sumerian. Make sure your mobile is charged, bring your Google Cardboard, because there will be live demos. About Ruben: When Ruben is not tinkering around with different realities, he is working as a freelance software developer, generally working with Angular2, Ionic, PHP and node.js. At the moment, he is working as the Lead developer for a hybrid application at the KLM. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Notes: • We are working hard to improve the diversity at our meetups. One way we do this is by saving spots for people in underrepresented groups. If you are on the waitlist and believe you are part of an underrepresented group, let one of our organisers know and you will either change your waitlist status (to 'Yes') or bump you up to the top of the waitlist. • Smile!
