"Type as much as you want"
We've all been there. You are working on a feature or bug in JavaScript, think you finally got it, run the code and there it is, it basically screams at you: "undefined is not a function". I love JavaScript but as my codebases for projects grow, certain pains appear again and again.

In recent years TypeScript has gained popularity as a tool to avoid common pains when developing a growing web application.

However, what if you already have a large JavaScript application? Adding types and moving to a new language can be cumbersum and frustrating.

In this talk we'll go through ways how you can leverage the power of TypeScript without having to refactor your entire codebase and instead use features of TypeScript at your own pace. Slowly adding more features when YOU want to.

Dominik is a Developer Evangelist for Twilio in San Francisco. He has a passion for JavaScript, hackathons, teaching and good whiskey. You will usually find him speaking at meetups and conferences, mentoring at hackathons and workshops or working on open source projects.

"Understanding Node.js"
Ever wonder how Node.js works and your code runs? Which version of Node.js should you be using? Callbacks or async/await? Then this is the talk for you! Expand your knowledge of modern Node.js versions for fun and profit. We'll also cover the great new features are available in Node.js 12!

Joe is a Staff Software Engineer at Fictiv. He has been using Node.js since Node 0.6 and all of the major releases since. "I work hard to improve my skills in the spirit of software craftsmanship. I'm a constant learner and am always looking for new technologies to improve my software quality."
