What we're about

The Monthly Dev is a series of online events brought to you with love by daily.dev. It's a place for software engineers to gather and hear world-class talks, once a month.

Our events will cover hot topics that developers love such as:

• Web development and performance

• Open-source libraries and frameworks

• Career advice and personal development

• And a bunch of other surprises that we have for you down the road.

All past events are recorded and available on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g30f69K_Tx4&list=PLgxOLy0hYwh1MP6RBPwuOBwb4w6kL5WGL

Who should join our group?

The Monthly Dev was made with a lot of ❤️ especially for developers. However, it's free and open for everyone to join. If you're into programming or just a tech enthusiast, you're welcome!

Why did we start The Monthly Dev?

We took some inspiration from TED. We thought, what if we can make "TED for developers"? That would be super cool and refreshing! We wanted to bring a monthly series of online events but with a different vibe.

Although we still look at it as an experiment, we decided on several guidelines for our events:

1. It will feature only world-class speakers that come with massive credentials

2. It will be freeIt will be open to everyone. No matter if you're using daily.dev or not

3. It will be enjoyable and full of surprises

The Monthly Dev brings world-class speakers to empower the developers' community, once a month. Made with ❤️ by daily.dev.

Name: Gant Laborde
Talk Title: Understanding React Native
Description: If you're looking to do mobile development, there's a big first-step question of Apple vs Android... unless you know JavaScript. Get to understand what React Native is, how popular it is, and how it works. Building cross-platform applications is an art, and we've done it for a myriad of fortune 500s. Let's discuss!

Speaker: Stacy Devino
Talk Title: Kotlin all the things, even your buildscripts
Description: You moved all of your Java code and Kotlin years ago, right? Did you move all your code into modules too? So why have you been keeping with Groovy for your Gradle scripts?

Now is the time to simplify your work and simplify your world by learning and migrating to Kotlin Gradle DSL. In your code, you will see gains in not only having a more shared and consistent language in all parts of your app but that you can start to build in a pure-Kotlin way. Not to mention, you now get ALL the capabilities of Kotlin that were so hard to accomplish before in Groovy like having inline functions, shared function resources across all of your modules, easier dependency management (especially for those things not able to be in a TOML), and the easy ability to write build script plugins so you don't have to copy the same standard code to every new module. Join me in learning how to revolutionize your codebase through Kotlin build systems to make your code easier to maintain, easier to split, and open to gains not previously possible.

Speaker: Mike Hartington
Talk title: New Mobile Stack
Description: Building an app today means that it needs to be available on the web, iOS and Android. For many, this can seem like a daunting task given the different tools, languages, and knowledge needed to be proficient in each platform. But it does not have to be. We'll look at how we can build amazing mobile apps, by reusing our existing web skill and targeting all the major platforms and what tools we can utilize along the way.

Starting time: May 24th, 8 AM PT (SF) / 11 AM (NYC)
