Design tools are amazing tools for thought, but for a host of reasons are limited to creating drawings rather than production assets. Engineers must instead re-create surfaces from scratch, by hand, using code. This inevitably leads to discrepancies and back-and-forth with the design team, and ultimately two sources of truth that are never truly in sync.
Plasmic is a tool to build UIs visually, currently in heavy development. It loosely resembles a design tool and aims to give the same sense of speedy iteration, but is for building maintainable, production-ready presentational components. The idea is to give developers a better and faster development experience, eliminate an entire class of visual bugs/QA/tooling, and ultimately maintain a single source of truth with design.

Join us in welcoming an old friend of south Florida: James Q Quick. He was one of our most amazing Microsoft Advocate in the past, but live decided to make him an offer he couldn't say no to and now he's top developer Youtube and twitch star with more followers that all meet ups in south florida combined (and then double that!) and he'll be presenting:
Static Sites and Serverless Functions - A Dynamic Combination
Static sites are growing in popularity, but many developers still question just how powerful they can be. As it turns out, there is an entire ecosystem of added functionality in the form of serverless functions.
In this talk, learn how to add dynamic functionality like email, text messaging, interacting with a data source, etc. to your static site using serverless functions. We will integrate and deploy a working demo that you, the audience, get to participate in. In this interactive talk, you'll learn that by using the right tools, there’s almost nothing you can’t do.
