Welcome to the first node Sydney of the year! We have three talks this month for you, as well as the usual social gathering.
We lost $ 20.5K in one day and how we could have saved it… hint: better automated testing
GraphQL server in TypeScript
Is GraphQL for you? We'll touch on when you should consider it and compare several packages that could help you to build your very own GraphQL API. Afterwards, we'll explore common pitfalls and the solutions our team came up with.
Making Games with Electron (~15 minutes)
In the talk Making Games With Electron, I will walk you through the process of developing your first game using the most popular technologies. Starting with the flow diagram, making your way through frontend-backend communication and all the way to testing with Jest.
The technologies we will touch upon:
TDD with Jest
But most importantly - you will see how to transform your vague idea into a solid plan of the game you can make on your own.
See you all there at Siteminder!
A quick word from our generous hosts:

Node.js @ SiteMinder
Engineering is a core part of who we are; every year our systems process tens of millions of reservations across 160 countries. It's an exciting time here as we're transforming to build a 100% API-driven, containerised product ecosystem. Today, our front-end is written in Vue.js and our back-end in Node.js, we're exploring the world of microservices, GraphQL and AWS services.
We look forward to tomorrow’s speakers as well as exchanging ideas with you.
