Timekeeping with JS at the beach
Rob Wells (https://twitter.com/FraggleBob)

JavaScript is not known for its brilliant abilities to keep time, so it's probably not best suited to timing motorsport. In this talk Rob will explain some of problems he faced in building an offline application to time Vintage Hot Rods on Pendine Sands.

The seventh annual running of the Hot Rod Races is happening over the weekend of 15th and 16th June. To find out more, visit http://www.vhra.co.uk/VHRA/Pendine_Sands.html
