August Event - Andy Taton, Svelte: Compiling our way to minimal, speedy JS

Ongoing agenda: 6:00 - Food and merriment 6:30 - Lightning Talks AWS Amplify – Daniel Kretsch AWS Amplify is a super neat framework for creating a serverless backend for your apps. With their easy-to-use CLI and well written docs you can get spun up in just a couple of minutes! Spend less time setting up your environment and more time writing JavaScript! 7:00 - Main presentation "Svelte: Compiling our way to minimal, speedy JS" – Andy Taton Sometimes, modern JS frameworks like React feel like...a bit too much! They bundle a large runtime library alongside your code, and execute single front-end changes by monitoring an entire virtual DOM. By contrast, Svelte (https://svelte.dev) feels like a framework, but compiles to simple, speedy Javascript, without the runtime. We’ll walk through a small, responsive application in Svelte, talk about its “HTMLX” API, and compare it to the alternatives. 7:45/8:00 - Free time to discuss, network, hack, etc. 8:30 - Disperse! Location Notes: This area is heavily served by public transit – take the 6, 17, or 21 to the Uptown Transit Center. On-street parking, or use of the paid Mozaic parking ramp is recommended. For the acoustic riders, there are bike racks facing the greenway as well. Please reach out to the organizers ([masked]) if you would like to use the building's accessible entrance or parking, as we can make additional arrangements. It's always a great event, hope to see you there!
