October is SydCSS' birthday month but this one is a particularly special one, because it's our 5th (aka half-a-decade) birthday! Can you believe it?? We have two great talks lined up and small gifts for you all to mark the special occassion. We can't wait to see you on the night!

*** Tickets will be released on Thursday 20th September at 10am. ***

Doors open at 6:30pm with presentations starting at 7pm. There'll be some finger food and drinks provided.

1) A Design System Product
Charlotte Jackson | twitter: @lottejackson

A living design system that is consumed by other teams is an internal product, and maintaining it comes with challenges. This talk shares Ansarada's approach to maintaining a design system and why it needs product management to be successful.

Charlotte is the Design System Product Manager at Ansarada. In her previous role at Clearleft in the UK, she was a front end developer who built component libraries for clients, and helped teams build their own. Two things she loves about her job are writing documentation and facilitating collaboration.

2) A World Without Javascript
Luke Batchelor | twitter: @ alukebatchelor

Javascript bundle sizes are getting completely out of hand. This talk (mostly satirically) looks at just what *could* be possible if we completely removed Javascript from the web.

Luke is a Javascript developer working at Atlassian in the Fabric Build team, mostly building various tools and setting up CI systems. He previously worked for Bankwest in Perth where he grew up and moved to Sydney at the beginning of 2016. He loves open source, puzzles and a good challenge.
