  • Friday Morning Code + Commiserate

    Online event

    As a developer, it's very easy to fall into the same routine: get up, go to work, deal with the project(s) on-hand, go home. But how are we keeping our skills sharp... and up to date? Once you're submerged in the grind, it can sometimes be difficult to rise to the surface and spend time improving your toolset. We feel your pain: we're in the same boat! Join us each week as we sit down and take time to dive into the latest dev news, share tips and tricks, and commiserate in general. This is an informal study group where we are all peers, learning from and sharing with the others. In a perfect world, we would be hanging out at The Lantern, but for the moment we're connecting virtually via Zoom. The rules? Be professional, be humble, be kind. Turn on your mic and camera, grab a coffee, and let's talk code!

  • GRWebDev Presents Ryan Weaver: A Crash Course into Modern JavaScript

    GRWebDev powered by LaFleur presents Ryan Weaver: A Crash Course into Modern JavaScript UPDATE This will be a virtual meetup; RSVP for Zoom link. DESCRIPTION JavaScript used to be so cute! It was all "var foo = true" this and "document.getElementById(‘header’).fadeIn()" that. But needless to say: things have changed. Now we work with frameworks like Vue.js & React, new syntaxes are appearing, such as the () => function and "class" keyword, and something called Webpack is "compiling" our code. We've come a long way since 1995! During this presentation, we'll walk through all of this: tracing through the most important new features of JavaScript (now called ECMAScript!), where they came from, and why you should care. We'll also dive into the mysteries of Webpack, browser support and more. Whether you're coding in React, Vue.js or plain ol' vanilla JavaScript, these tools will unlock your path to modern JavaScript development. BIO Ryan is a member of the Symfony core team, where he holds the vital yet unenviable role of documentation lead. He also writes content for SymfonyCasts at symfonycasts.com. When it comes to code, he's all about developer experience: how can we get great tools into the hands of more people... and hopefully make it really fun along the way. SPONSORS This month's meetup is graciously sponsored by SymfonyCasts. SymfonyCasts features more than ninety video tutorial courses covering a wide range of topics such as REST APIs, PHP and Drupal, Object-Oriented Programming, JavaScript, and (of course) Symfony.
