  • From Zero to Chatbots Mini Workshop + Create an API in 20 Minutes with LoopBack
    Agenda: 6:00pm Doors open 6:30pm From Zero to Chatbots Mini Workshop by Tessa Mero 7:00pm Create an API in 20 Minutes with LoopBack by Erin McKean 7:30pm 15 Seconds of Fame 8:00pm Meetup over Hosts: Thank you to Galvanize for hosting and to Cisco for sponsoring food. From Zero to Chatbots Mini Workshop by Tessa Mero ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Abstract: Chatbots and conversational agents have become very popular in the recent years and there is a huge research effort to automate conversations in several applications. What are Chatbots? How can it benefit you? How do you get started with a chat API? These questions will be answered during the session with step by step directions so you can easily follow along. No experience required. Come join me and build your first Chatbot! Bio: Tessa Mero is a Developer Evangelist for Cisco DevNet. She enjoys running events involving the PHP and API community. In the past, she has contributed to a leadership team for the Joomla! Projector 5 years, including the board of directors, leading the production team, as well as evangelizing Joomla as a public speaker. She also is an avid career mentor and has helped countless developers become successful. On her free time, she likes to play video games, learn new tech, go camping, and eat Korean food. Create an API in 20 Minutes with LoopBack by Erin McKean ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Using LoopBack, an open-source framework for generating REST APIs with Node, you can build a full set of CRUD endpoints in 20 minutes. Then you can spend your time adding custom endpoints, user authentication, pre- and post-DB hooks, and a lot more! LoopBack works with just about any database you care to name (Mongo, MySQL, PostGRES, Elasticsearch, Cassandra ...) and also has OpenAPI spec support! Bio: Erin McKean is a developer advocate at IBM and loves talking about APIs to anyone who will stand still long enough. Before turning to Node.js, she dabbled in Ruby, HyperCard, Perl, and Omnimark, and still finds herself writing bash scripts on a regular basis. Erin is also the founder of the nonprofit online dictionary Wordnik.com, which has a lot of fun APIs! She is an honorary fellow of the Society for Technical Communication, and in her spare time she sews clothes and makes Twitterbots. FAQ: Q: Will food be provided? A: Cisco is sponsoring Pizza and Caesar salad. At our next event, we will return to our regularly scheduled vegan/gluten free/healthy options. To the one dude who only comes to get totally wasted: there will be no alcohol. Q: Can I bring my bicycle? A: Yes Q: Is the venue wheelchair accessible? A: Yes Q: Is closed captioning provided for the hard of hearing? A: We currently do not have plans to offer closed captioning, however, we can offer headphones with increased volume for the hard of hearing. Please reach out to the organizers if you would like to take advantage of this, or if it is an issue for you. Q: Is there a fee to get in? A: The fee is a portion of what little sanity you have left.

  • SFJS May 2018: Embedded V8 Contexts
    Agenda: 6:00pm Doors open 6:30pm How we expose distributed JS services to customers using an embedded v8 context by Kurt Mackey 7:00pm Running GraphQL Everywhere by Evans Hauser 7:30pm 15 Seconds of Fame 9:00pm Meetup over Hosts: Thank you to our host Okta for providing space and snacks. Add auth to your apps: https://developer.okta.com/ How we expose distributed JS services to customers using an embedded v8 context by Kurt Mackey Global applications present a unique set of development problems. In this talk we'll share why we built Fly.io, a global JavaScript application runtime, to solve these issues. Think CDN that runs your code. We'll talk about our globally distributed cache, how we handle SSL before passing the HTTP connection off to v8 contexts, and how we push users' JavaScript out to all those servers. Within the v8 context, user code has access to a limited whatwg JavaScript API, our caching service, and some other basic necessities for executing fully custom CDN logic. Kurt Mackey is the cofounder at Fly.io, a globally distributed JavaScript application runtime based in Chicago. He ran tech for Ars Technica for 8 years, then left to build compose.io (YC S11), which was acquired by IBM in 2015. Running GraphQL Everywhere by Evans Hauser GraphQL is an API technology that allows clients to ask for the exact data they need, without the server sending extraneous results or having to perform extra roundtrips to fetch related objects. A GraphQL server offers a reusable way of exposing microservices, in effect allowing teams to create Backends For Frontends on the fly. GraphQL servers typically use Node, enabling frontend teams to write and deploy GraphQL services using universal javascript. In this talk, I introduce GraphQL, demonstrate how to create a GraphQL server based on Node, and discuss deploying a GraphQL service in traditional, serverless, and edge environments. Evans Hauser (https://twitter.com/evanshauser) is a open source engineer at Apollo, focusing on building production-grade GraphQL tools and services. He started the Apollo link and Apollo bot projects and currently maintains Apollo server. Code of conduct: All attendees are expected to abide by the code of conduct outlined here: http://confcodeofconduct.com/ FAQ: Q: Will food be provided? A: Light snacks and drinks will be provided, with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Q: Can I bring my bicycle? A: True red-blooded Americans drive cars everywhere, but if you're bringing a bike, don't lock it outside, bring it up to the 2nd floor with you. Q: Is the venue wheelchair accessible? A: Yes. Q: Is closed captioning provided for the hard of hearing? A: We currently do not have plans to offer closed captioning, however, we can offer headphones with increased volume for the hard of hearing. Please reach out to the organizers if you would like to take advantage of this, or if it is an issue for you. Q: Can I come and tell everyone to use my new app? Everyone should use my app! A: Please re-think your life choices.

    **Preact-cli, your PWA toolkit** Prateek Bhatnagar This talk will cover the motives of preact-cli, how it helps you setup up an automatic PWA development environment and keeps you on a good track of a perfect 100 lighthouse score. I will talk also about the setup which preact-cli gives you out of the box and what all can you achieve with it the PWA world. This talk will also cover integration of external tools in order to facilitate anything which does not come pre-bundled in the tech stack. And will cover extending the support for SSR and a few other things that you caneasily juggle with if you have preact-cli as your choice. ##Prateek Bhatnagar My name is Prateek Bhatnagar, I work with the AMP team @ Google Mountain view office and also a team member of WorkboxJS. I love contributing to the preact community and in my idle time I love to think about how to make web a better place for both UX and DX. **Build Tooling and Productivity** Harris Weeks An overview of the frontend challenges at DoorDash and what we've done to enhance developer productivity.
