1) Monica Lent (@monicalent) - Frontend Lead @SumUp
* Building resilient frontend architecture *
Change is inevitable. So is legacy. And too often, we as developers (who love to solve problems by coding) fall into the trap of believing the only way to fix it is by rewriting everything again and again. But how can we design an application architecture that is more resilient to change in the first place? In this talk we’ll look at specific techniques you can use today to keep your app from turning into that infamous ball of mud.
2) Sara Vieira(@NikkitaFTW) - Developer Advocate at @YLD
* Build dumb sh*t *
We tend to see our jobs and our work as developers as the pursuit to help the world and build useful things for other people because that's what we are thought.
When we learn something we make to-do lists, we make useful things. In this talk I am gonna try and show you the value of making dumb things, making useless things.
Yes, I am speaking at my own meetup. 🤷🏻♀️
Also a suprise MC!
It's actually Carolyn!
