LeicesterJS is back for another tech (and pizza) filled evening. Connect with local developers and listen to talks by industry leaders and expert.

We have two fantastic talks to look forward to this week.

First up we have, ”A mostly non technical talk about building software” by Joshua Graham, Host of the podcast Getting Apps Done

Listen as Joshua dives into how the ways we currently look for and judge developers (and ourselves!) are wrong and aren’t giving us an accurate picture of the people behind the keyboards. It’s our journey that makes us unique; a myriad small things that make a person amazing most of which really have very little to do with code.

Next we have a talk by Richard Birley, UX/UI Designer & Developer at CloudCall

This talk is all about its about breaking up elements and re-usable components into a granular form rather than designing for a page or device from page level and trying to make it all fit. He'll also be diving into the specifics of working with design tools like Figma and how they integrate into a development workflow.

But wait! There is more! LeicesterJS Stickers will be up for grabs! Come down and get yourself one!

Scheduled start is 7pm, with food and refreshments at 7:30pm, followed by networking and general discussion with a scheduled end time of around 8:30pm.


Look forward to an evening of tech talks, networking and of course, pizza. Come along to the fantastic CloudCall offices, located right next to the train station, to discuss all things Javascript!
