INTRODUCING THE PAMSTACK - A NEW FRAMEWORK FOR CREATING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT TEAMS
We are all too familiar with projects and companies that only seem to be able to support senior developers, but this can get expensive, unsustainable, and your team can begin to look very myopic. Teams begin groupthink, ideas become stale, and it can be difficult to reinvigorate the growing sense of mundane development. It doesn't have to be this way. In fact, creating an inclusive architecture can help development go faster and become more cost effective.

It's not difficult to begin adjusting your sails and beginning to create an architecture that is inclusive in nature to support junior developers, project managers, and designers. No application is too critical, complicated, or obscure to be able to achieve this. We'll talk through frameworks, tools, abstractions, and simple steps that can help you start building inclusively.

We will also talk through how you can build a corresponding culture that allows inclusivity on your team, and why this is so critical to your business. We'll walk through processes you can incorporate, team roles, and how you can build a better template for the future of your business.

RXJS - OPERATOR, WHAT’S YOUR REAL WORLD USE CASE? IMPORTANT OPERATORS IN RXJS EXPLAINED
Are you overthinking RxJS? Overwhelmed by the ~70 operators available to you? Confused by the docs and need someone to explain to you what on earth the differences between all the -maps are? Are you using that operator right? What operator should you actually be using? How do other people use RxJS operators? This talk covers walks through lamens terms definitions and real world use cases for some of the most important operators out there so you can effectively maximize your use of RxJS and get clarity on what RxJS is doing in your application.
