What we're about

PragueJS is a group of rising JavaScript enthusiasts who meet every month in a different place, to discuss all the cutting edge trends and tweaks in JavaScript and related topics. And hey, there's beer, so you can come even if you don't know jack about JS. Almost all talks have been recorded and published on our Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC35c9cDvXa4zDNq_uJXufTQ).

AGENDA:

It's time to modernize our backend stack (EN)
Miroslav Bajtoš | Independent Freelancer

Abstract:

A lot of popular Node.js packages were created ten years ago. Designed for language idioms of ES5 and capabilities of Node.js version 0.10. Since then, both JavaScript and Node.js added numerous major features: ES modules, async/await, HTTP/2, AsyncLocalStorage, Worker threads, Diagnostics channel, WebAssembly, and the list goes on. Unfortunately, too many popular packages did not keep up their pace with the platform evolution and got stuck in the old era.

In my talk, I will discuss the problem from various angles: Why did this happen? Is this a problem at all? Which packages we should consider deprecated? What are their modern replacements? What criteria to apply when choosing our dependencies?



Don't get burned by APIs (EN)
Jan Vlnas | Superface

Abstract:

So, you want to integrate an API? You've probably integrated dozens of them. Just a few fetch calls and call it a day. But APIs change, vendors have outages, and customers demand even more integrations.
Let's take a look at some familiar – yet always "nice to have" – patterns and practices to prevent pains with API integrations… And how to actually put them into practice.
