Worum es bei uns geht

A meetup for everyone who has an interest in Web Engineering.

Web Engineering is the discipline of building and improving the web or web apps. This includes everything like PHP, JavaScript, Go(lang), Elixir, Elm, SQL, Caching, Frontend, (agile) project management, humans / computer science, databases, programming, knowledge sharing with people of similar interests and everything else that is related to (web) development.

You want to share knowledge? Meet new people with similar interests? Just want to see something new? Want to learn different things?

Everyone is welcome regardless of knowledge level, job, beginner, professional, etc. Join us! We meet regularly (once a month). Have a look at our next meetups!

Write a link checker in a weekend? && The Dark Side of Migration and Rebuilding

Covid forced a pause. We took a bit of time off and regained energy. Now we move again. Let's get into it!

In June, we will be sponsored by Babiel (https://www.babiel.com/de) and do an evening with two talks.

## +++ So you can write a link checker in a weekend? (by Matthias Endler) +++

Many developers suffer from the "curl" syndrome: they think they could
write curl on a weekend. After all, how hard can it be to open a network connection and return the result!?
I thought the same when I started writing a link checker in Rust. After just one weekend (and two more years) I had something working, well, barely working.
From weird network responses over timeouts to retry-handling there are a lot of things to consider.
Follow me on my journey through the weirdness of the broken web and why seemingly simple things can get complex.

Matthias Endler is a Backend developer and Open Source maintainer focused on Rust.
With his solid knowledge of performance optimizations and scalability, he helps companies worldwide to get the most out of Rust. He spoke at conferences such as FOSDEM in Brussels, Cod{e}motion in Amsterdam, BrisTech in Bristol, and gave workshops at RustBeltRust and RustFest.

## +++ It's a Trap: Don't Let Your Apps Go to the Dark Side of Migration and Rebuilding (by Christoph Reinarzt) +++

Migrating and rebuilding apps can be a real minefield, especially when you're in hypergrowth mode. Join me for a laid-back chat as I will dive into the ups and downs of app migrations in rapidly expanding environments where legacy software always makes an appearance. I'll spill the tea on the dangers of overengineering, scope creep, and the confusion that comes with ambiguity. Oh, and I won't hold back on sharing our epic wins and fails along the way. So, if you want some practical tips and real-life stories to navigate these tricky waters, grab a seat, and let's chat. Together, I'll make sure your apps stay far, far away from the dark side.
