    "10 Things I Love About Postgres" - Richard Clayton

    Postgres is a fantastic general-purpose database used by millions of developers every day. Being one of the oldest open-source relational databases, Postgres has accumulated many features over the years. In this talk, we will briefly touch on 10 of my favorites. Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding of how Postgres differs from other popular databases like MySQL and MongoDB, and inspire some use cases for your own projects.

    Katie Riley is starting the night off with "Y THO?", an exploration into seemingly nonsensical results from Ruby and JS interpreters.

    If you've never been surprised by a totally random result in your application, you haven't worked in Ruby or JS for long. Implicit choices made by interpreters can seem totally wrong. Diving a little deeper, we can hopefully discover what these computers are thinking.

    William Dos Santos is back! This time he will be presenting "Exploring Lottie Animations". Here's a little sneak peek from William.

    "Your app works! The design is clean and the functionality is stable. But now you want to give it that little extra zip with some animations here and there. Together, we will take a look at the Lottie Animation library and discuss its benefits and when and how to use it."

  • Full Stack Talks - Let's Watch a Talk Edition

    Planning Center

    We're back an in-person! After more than a year of being unable to meet in the same physical space, we now have the ability and go-ahead to meet at the Planning Center offices once again. And to celebrate, ~we've got~ we had a great talk scheduled.

    The previous plan was to have William Dos Santos present "Exploring Lottie Animations." However, an unfortunately-timed sickness for Will derailed his ability to do a presentation this month, so we will get him scheduled for some time in the near future.

    However, we will still be meeting this month. In place of William's talk, we will be hanging out, catching up, watching a conference talk together, and discussing afterwards. It'll still be a great time, so come and join us.

    For the sake of completeness, I'm leaving the full previous announcement below.

    =============================

    William Dos Santos will be presenting "Exploring Lottie Animations". Here's a little sneak peek from William.

    "Your app works! The design is clean and the functionality is stable. But now you want to give it that little extra zip with some animations here and there. Together, we will take a look at the Lottie Animation library and discuss its benefits and when and how to use it."

    And since this will be the first time we're together again, we'll have some extra time for socializing and catching up.

    If you can't make it to the event, talks will be streamed live at http://live.fullstacktalks.com and will be available on YouTube shortly after the event as well.

    As usual, snacks and beverages will be provided by Planning Center (https://planning.center), and there will be time after the talks to chat with fellow web professionals about all things design and development.

    Finally, if you're interested in speaking at an upcoming Full Stack event or would like to give us other general feedback, please fill out the form at fullstacktalks.com/submit-a-talk.

    We'll see you there!

  • Full Stack Talks - ES Modules with Michael Chan

    Online event

    This month, we'll dive back into the world of Javascript with Michael Chan, host of React Podcast and building https://lunch.dev.

    Every ES Modules Feature in 30 Minutes

    There's a lot of bad advice and angry tweets about ES Modules. Chantastic has a new course covering ES Modules in-depth. In this meetup, he'll share it as a 30 minute talk to help you organize, distribute, and manage your code with confidence.

    Topics covered:
    * Side-effects, isolation, and exports
    * Strategies for avoiding variable collisions
    * Dynamic imports and when to use them
    * Named exports, export list, and default export
    * Exactly when `default` is a bad idea
    * Tree-shaking and how smart bundlers ship less code using the same syntax

    This talk will be streamed live at http://live.fullstacktalks.com and the stream replay will be available on YouTube after the event.

  • Full Stack Talks - Use Babel to Statically Analyze JSX

    Online event

    This month, Travis Arnold has a great presentation about React and Babel.

    ==== Use Babel to Statically Analyze JSX ====
    While Babel is popular for transpiling code from new to old syntax, we can also use it to gain static analysis of our code. By the end of this talk, we will have a simple Babel plugin we can use to grab all of the JSX elements out of a string of code.

    The talk will be streamed live at http://live.fullstacktalks.com, and will be available on YouTube shortly after the event as well.
