More talks TBA --- Hima Tammineedi to present: "Making screen recording a reality with just JavaScript" Abstract: Is it possible to make a screen recording that captures a website directly from its DOM instead of capturing pixels on your screen? Turns out yes and we made a way to do it. It's called Capsule. I'll go over this mind-blowing tool that produces recordings that look like videos, but behave like websites. These are videos that you can actually interact with. I'll cover some of what went into both the frontend and backend to make a tool like this work. ---- Jean Lange to present: "Code Retreat!" Abstract: Global Day of Code Retreat is on November 7th! What is this thing and why should you spend hours of your Saturday doing it? ---- Bruce Parr to present: "DevSecOps - Risk Advisory Framework: A Different Approach to Shifting Left" Abstract: Using a DevSecOps approach, we've created a semi-automated process for software engineers and test engineers to participate in the security process before creating code. ---- Matt McHenry to present: "Wrangling JSON with jid and jq" Abstract: JavaScript Object Notation: We've all heard of it. Most of us deal with it every workday. Something that ubiquitous deserves its own dedicated power tools. This talk introduces two of the most popular. The JSON Incremental Digger, jid, is the perfect tool for visually exploring the structure of an unfamiliar JSON document. jq is a powerful tool for processing JSON documents. It can be used to search for parts of a large document with particular characteristics; transform one or many input documents into a new output document; produce new documents from scratch; and more. Attendees will leave with a clear sense of how these tools can make their daily interactions with JSON more pleasant and efficient. ---- Ruthan Freese to present: "How to make a really good Slack emoji" Abstract: High-level tools overview, including transparentizing and cropping. --- Seth Peasley to present: "Blazor Introduction" Abstract: An introduction to Blazor, the C# Web Technology. --- Missy Moreno to present: "How to Human While Zoomin'" Abstract: We went from office space to digital space in a flash and that can make us forget we are in the flesh, even on a camera. Missy Moreno, Pgh comedian and newbie coder, will help you remember the great things of human stuff and how you can connect to someone else's even through a camera lens. High virtual five! --- Jasmine Davis to present: "Near, Far, Wherever You Are: Remote Group Collaboration Tips" Abstract Your team doesn't have to be in one place to work together! These tips will help you collaborate in groups both big and small.

  • Global Day of CodeRetreat: Virtual Edition

    Online event

    Coderetreats are free day-long, intensive practice events, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of "getting things done", the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of learning and nurturing software development skills.
