    About Juan Tejada
    Juan is a software engineer at Nylas working on the N1 team, and he’s continually excited about all things javascript. He comes from Colombia, where he got his BS in Computer Science at Universidad de los Andes. Before joining Nylas, he founded Academical, a web-based service for university class scheduling, and previously worked at Authy as a front-end engineer.

    Node, Electron, and the New Desktop Environment
    Javascript development has been traditionally confined to either web development or server-side development. But what if we could have the best of both worlds in one single Javascript environment? What if we could use the set of tools we know and love to build beautiful, cross-platform Mac, Linux, and Windows desktop applications?

    For the past year at Nylas we’ve been using Node, Electron, and modern web technologies to build N1; a highly extensible desktop email client. In this talk we’ll explore how we’ve used these tools to build a whole new kind of desktop app, and peek inside some of the innards behind building an extensible email client while we discover the possibilities this new environment has to offer.

    About Blake Embrey
    Blake is a software engineer at MuleSoft. He has been using TypeScript over the last year, working alongside the community as a member of TypeStrong, maintainer of TSD, and author of Typings and TypeScript Node.

    Introduction to TypeScript
    TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript. It introduces a static type system to a language used everywhere.

    Open mic
