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

This month we have a talk entitled "JS in CSS: The magic of Houdini" by Laura Gonzalez. Laura is a software developer at Facebook (and before that, Guardian & The Next Web). She loves all things Javascript and CSS and in her free time, she can be seen doing pointless NPM modules or feeding squirrels at the park.

Here is a summary of what you can expect from this talk:
What is Houdini? What can it do? Can it do anything for me? A quick walk through some of the APIS the new Houdini CSS WG has been working on and how to use them, with some live coding sprinkled in

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

The scheduled start is 7 pm, with food and refreshments at 7:30 pm, followed by networking and general discussion with a scheduled end time of around 8:30 pm. Afterwards, we will be heading to Manhattans round the corner for a drink or two!
