What we'll do
This August we're mixing it up with a different venue and different format. We'll be hosted by CarsGuide.com.au in Surry Hills, with food and beverage sponsored by The Onset.
Three 10 minute lightning talks to get the night underway. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
#1 Paul Evans - "Universal Vue"
SEO has always been important to our business but so too is site performance and user experience. Until now it felt like we couldn't provide the best possible user experience without sacrificing SEO. Then we discovered Nuxt and suddenly it felt like the right time to make the leap to a single page app.
Bio: Paul is a tech lead at CarsGuide currently leading a team on an exciting project to build the UI for a new progressive web app. He specialises in front-end technologies and is passionate about good consumer experiences.
#2 Vaibhav Namburi - "Why switch to a new framework, again ?"
You may have JUST moved to a new JS library, but i can say with confidence that Vue is worth a peek.From a better thought out infrastructure, a mature templating engine, an internally maintained toolkit and along with the fact that Vue is only 32kb gzipped, its a serious contender. We'll go over why Vue will help speed development cycles effectively resulting in quicker product launches, what is it about Vue that makes the developer experience so seamless and how quick and integratable Vue is to your current projects.
Bio: Vaibhav is the director/tech lead of Five2One, and has built and taught multiple courses on React online, reaching over 14000 students and acclaiming a best seller in his category.

He's a part time boot camp lecturer and tech advisor to multiple ICOs.
#3 Pierre Pointereau - "Our journey to production"
In a massive company employing more than 8,000 staff nationwide and approximately 3,000 journalists, managing to maintain the front-end on the cutting edge of modern practices is a challenge. Here’s why VueJS seems to be our silver bullet, from a diagram to a deployment to production and the outcomes we've realised.
Bio: Pierre is one of the front-end tech leads at News Corp Australia. His team is in charge of the development of front-end products and experiences, in-house as well as for advertising customers.
