Our September event will be up.front’s 60th meetup – reason to celebrate! Plus, it’s WhatTheFest (http://wwwtf.berlin/), Berlin’s week of awesome community tech events, and we expect an extra amazing crowd of community members from around the world to join us for up.front.
Ola Gasidlo: Worker as a Service
Service worker is the new cool kid in town. But what does it do? Why do we need it? What is a worker actually? Enjoy this introduction and make the web work for you!
Lewis Cowper: Modularise All the Things! (Now Including CSS)
Recently, there's been a lot of talk about modularising UIs into components. Lewis will explore some strategies that allow you to do this, and introduce the css-modules project and how you can get started with it in your own projects. This talk will get you interested in modular UIs, and introduce you to some tools and methods that you can use to build your web applications in a loosely coupled way.
Lewis is a Junior Front End Dev at HitFox group. He loves offline capable web apps, analysing processes, and modular design.
Jonathon Bellew: Making Friends and Beautiful Things With Your Browser
An overview of the wonderful tools the browser gives developers and designers right now to collaborate on creative projects. This talk focuses on concepts and opportunities rather than complex coding, and is appropriate for designers, developers, and anyone wanting to know how to collaborate across these two disciplines. It will feature real world examples from my recent work history, and is based on a talk I gave at decompress.com.au 2015.
Jonathon is a computer programmer and designer from Melbourne, living in Berlin. He builds and deploys websites and web-based applications, and has a particular interest in creating tools that help designers and programmers collaborate.
Up.front is a free event, and you do not have to register anywhere. However it gets packed sometimes. Doors open at 8pm, talks start ca. 15min later. Arrive on time to make sure you get a seat! After the talks there’s time for conversations with tasty drinks or snacks at Kremanski (http://www.kremanski.de/), a cosy coffeeshop and bistro just around the corner from our venue.
We always need volunteers who help us to prepare the venue (and build it back after the meetups). This takes ca. 15 minutes and is fun – arrive at 7pm if you want to help us <3
Accessibility: If you would like to use the elevator, please tweet @upfront_ug (http://twitter.com/upfront_ug/) when you arrive.
You are required to follow our code of conduct (http://up.front.ug/codeofconduct.html).
