Join us on Wednesday November 9th for talks on Embedding V8 and VueJS!

Doors at 6:40pm, with talks beginning at 7pm.

1. Things we learned embedding V8 - Vaugham Hong

V8 is Google's high performance Javascript engine used in Chrome and Node.js. This talk gives an overview of embedding V8. It touches on the memory model, generational garbage collection details, hidden classes, and inline caching. The final part of the talk takes a look at how we use embedded V8 to do live editing in our VR related projects.

2. VueJS - James Doyle

If you have spent any time in the last year researching front-end frameworks, then you've probably come across VueJS. The framework recently hit a 2.0 release and there are significant improvements. But how does it compare to something like Angular or React? Why would you use it over something else? What type of projects are good candidates for Vue? How steep is the learning curve and what kind of tooling does it require?

James Doyle from Invoke walks through the VueJS ecosystem from 'Hello World!' and example use-cases to more advanced features like custom components, developer tools, Vue plugins, and the Vue router.

3. Beer

Drinks and discussion with other VanJS attendees afterwards at the London Pub, 700 Main Street at Georgia.

The meetup will be hosted at VFS Programming Campus located at 88 East Pender Street in Chinatown.
