For our October meetup we are returning to the Karel de Grote hogeschool. This time however, we will hold our meetup in the shiny new Campus Zuid. The exact address of the Campus is Brusselstraat 45 · Antwerpen.

The venue is so kind to provide drinks and some small finger food! Yummie!

We have two speakers lined up for you. Wouter Sioen, of madewithlove, will tell us how to successfully build and use microservices. Returning speaker Sam Bellen will do some cool stuff with the web audio API. 🎵

We hope to see you soon!

Microservices after the hype by Wouter Sioen

Now the big microservices hype is calming down a bit and people are gaining more and more experience in this topic, we have learned a lot of trade-offs about this way of building applications. This means we can also devise some guidelines on when and how to implement them. Let's share some issues we've encountered with them and what is needed to bring building microservices to a success.

Speaker: Wouter is a software engineer working at madewithlove. He's passionate about writing high quality software using TDD and refactoring legacy code towards maintainable systems.

Channel your inner rockstar with the web-audio API by Sam Bellen

The days when you needed a bunch of expensive musical equipment are gone. We all have devices with a web browser which is capable of creating, composing and modulating sound. The web-audio API makes it easier than ever before to create music on the web. It hosts an array of easy to use audio nodes, which take away a part of the hard work, while still allowing the desired flexibility to create the exact sound you’re after.

Speaker: I'm Google Developer expert who works as a developer evangelist at Auth0. At Auth0 we're trying to make authentication and identification as easy as possible, while still keeping it secure.
After office hours I like to play around with the web-audio API, and other "exotic" browser API's. One of my side projects is a library to add audio effects to an audio input using JavaScript.
When I'm not behind a computer, you can find playing the guitar, having a beer at a concert, or trying to snap the next perfect picture.
