  • Hot Garbage: Clean Code is Dead w/Michael Chan
    Please register via Eventbrite to be on the Guestlist: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hot-garbage-clean-code-is-dead-wmichael-chan-tickets-48929796338 Hi JavaScriptLA fans, The Code is rising up to enslave us. An army of linter-plugins have given it a voice and it's angry. Clean code isn't the goal, its the enemy. Great code isn't clean, it's hot garbage—hot-swappable and easy to throw out. Code is a means to an end. When we stop fetishizing code and start fighting it, we've found the right enemy and we can get back to to the good work of serving customers. About the Presenter: Michael Chan is a second career web developer. He has a business degree and 10 years of accounting experience that went up in flames during the financial collapse of 2008. He's now an international speaker and React educator. He loves helping second-career devs jumpstart their career with React at learnreact.com.

  • Hacktoberfest Orange County
    Please RSVP via eventbrite to be on the guestlist: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hacktoberfest-orange-county-tickets-50717548553 It's Hacktoberfest 2018! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, and great company! Bring your laptop and powercord. Please read our Events Code of Conduct before attending. Happy hacking! Agenda 6:00-6:30P - Sign-in 6:30-7:00P - Sharing open source projects you're working on (keep it short!) 7:00-10:30P - Let's open some pull requests! What's Hacktoberfest? Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today. New Developers? If you're a newer developer and would like help learning how to contribute, please ask for help from somebody in a blue AutoGravity shirt! When we first break out into open coding, we'll be hosting a small meeting for new developers on how they can get involved. Not a coder? There are plenty of projects on GitHub that could use contributions via design, copy, and even high-level organizational decisions. Open source isn't just about code, and this event is simply about open source. Feel free to join us. Rules and Prizes First sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. If you open up five pull requests between October 1 and October 31, you'll win a free, limited edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt. (Pull requests do not have to be merged and accepted; as long as they've been opened between the very start of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count towards a free T-shirt.) AutoGravity - as the hosts of this specific event - will be providing some small gift cards for various event-specific challenges which will be announced at the event. Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants (Hacktobefestants?) by using the hashtag, #hacktoberfest, on your social media platform of choice. New to DigitalOcean? Receive USD $10 in infrastructure credit at do.co/hacktoberfest2018.
