*** RSVP AT THE MODERN WEB MEETUP EVENT *** https://www.meetup.com/modernweb/events/252139938/ Come join us for our next Meetup with a special collaboration by Modern Web! Featuring: Ben Lesh, RxJS Core team, Angular Core team at Google, This Dot Co-founder Tracy Lee, This Dot Co-founder, RxJS Core Team, GDE "RxJS in Node: Reactive Programming Outside Of The Browser" Abstract: For the first part of our talk, we will discuss what reactive programming is, and the basics of RxJS and why it's a solid fit for Node. Then we are going to show a variety of reactive patterns you can employ with RxJS in your Node services. David Sasson, Customer Success Engineer, Applitools "Make a Long Story Short: Automating visual testing of Storybook components" Abstract: React Storybook has changed the way many companies approach web design and development, facilitating shared component libraries that can be visually browsed to pick and choose components. This is a huge time-saver for front-end development teams and provides the unique opportunity to test components on their own, before being incorporated in numerous places across a site. In this talk, I will run through the React Storybook shared component library and its value to front-end teams, and the importance of testing both the functional and visual aspects of these components. Dominic Farolino, intern at Microsoft, Chromium contributor, and ex-Mozilla intern. "Demystifying Web Standards" *Description coming soon

This month's meetup we'll have 2 speakers starting at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm and there will be pizza and drinks available. Long-form Talk: ----- Speaker: Boris Cherny Title: Undux - a simple, modern alternative to Flux and Redux Boris is a frontend engineer at Facebook. In his free time he evangelizes TypeScript and Haskell in San Francisco (look for his book Programming TypeScript, out early next year!) ----- Speaker: Lucas Garron Title: Clipboard APIs on the Web The new asynchronous clipboard API aims to make it easy to read or write clipboard data. This is actually not the first (or second) way to copy text to the clipboard from a website, and we'll go over the rocky history of the old APIs through the lens of the clipboard-polyfill library, along with future challenges for clipboard access on the web. ----- We can't wait to see ya'll soon for this month's talks! See you there!

We are excited to be back to share some more insightful talks with you all! Doors open at 6:30pm, with speakers slated to speak at 7:00pm. Food and drinks are provided. Meetup is located at Shape Security, on the 4th floor of 800 West El Camino Real. Our May 8th meetup will be hosting two speakers with exciting topics: ----- Speaker: Vamshi Title: High-performance GraphQL on Postgres with Hasura Description: This talk is a review of how we created a GraphQL backend backed by Postgres. The key challenges faced by real-world apps and our solution approach, specifically around expressive query arguments, access control, schema iteration, sharing auth between multiple API backends. We will also review some quick tips to make the most out of Postgres and reveal some early performance benchmarks. We will end with a demo how you can create complex data models and make intuitive graphql queries from your app without requiring in-depth knowledge of graphql schemas. Vamshi heads engineering at Hasura. He was instrumental in building the GraphQL data layer at Hasura. Vamshi's latest work at Hasura is setting up a declarative infrastructure provisioning system. ----- Speaker: Preeti Title: Building CorvoStore, an in-memory, key-value database Description: "How does Redis work? Why is it so efficient and popular?" In order to answer these questions, I collaborated with two other developers to create CorvoStore, a Key-value store inspired by Redis, that meets the same time-complexity benchmarks for operations on its stored values. In my presentation I will talk about using: —A hash and doubly-linked list to represent Least-Recently-Used (LRU) key expiration —Redis-inspired RESP protocol, —The engineering process of building a node-based, key-value store from scratch" Preeti is a fullstack developer interested in learning new technologies and discovering what is happening in the JS community. ---- We are excited to see you all in May! See you all soon!
