"Common Component Decomposition Pitfalls (And How To Avoid Them!)"
The popularity of component-based frameworks has led to a Goldilocks problem for many web development teams. Some teams have too many components, filling their code base with files and folders for components that don't have a clear purpose. Other teams have too few components, and the ones they have are monoliths containing way too much logic and becoming impossible to change. Let's discuss some common component decomposition pitfalls and strategies for making sure that the components you have in your system are just right.

"TypeScript in the Field: Magic or Menace?"
TypeScript is one of the most exciting and polarizing technologies tearing up Stack Overflow in 2020. If you wade through the torrent of headlines and developer blogs, you may encounter wild claims such as: "TypeScript reduced our number of unit tests by more than 38%," "I spent more time writing types than I did writing code," and, "What does it give me that a well-configured linter does not?" So, are you curious if TypeScript deserves all the hype and hot takes? In this talk, let's separate fact from fiction. Let's take a closer look at what TypeScript is, what it isn't, and how to use effectively it in your next production projects.
Come and join us for tech talks, food, drinks, and some great conversation! We can’t wait to meet you!
