For our December meetup we're invited to the offices of Officient. We have two talks lined up for you. Ilias Ismanalijev will talk about the JAMstack and Jonas Kroeger will talk about Frontend Performance Testing.
Officient will be providing food and drinks so you can come hungry and thirsty!
We hope to see you soon,
Dries & Rias

What the JAM by Ilias Ismanalijev
Ilias will explain the JAMstack, a new way of building websites and apps that delivers better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and a better developer experience. This talk will focus on projects that have been JAMmed by Ilias such as loonkost.com, inzicht.io and musicplayer.io, as well as showing some sweet new tricks that will let you spread your knowledge of Vue.js, TypeScript, Airtable and optimising your applications for load performance.
Speaker: Ilias is co-founder & front-end lead of officient.io and is the organiser of Vue.js Belgium. He hates maintaining servers and is always on the look out on how to put more JS everywhere.
Frontend Performance Testing in practise by Jonas Kroeger
You all probably have heard about #perfmatters, but did you make frontend performance a priority with your last `npm install $this-ui-library-that-looks-great`? After a short introduction, I will get into practices on how you can integrate frontend performance testing into your development workflow.
Speaker: Jonas is a Solutions Architect at Platform.sh helping clients run their applications headache-free in the cloud. He has a background as a Web Developer and later Technical Product Manager. Working remotely, he has worked from over 25 countries in the last 2 years.
