Join us for the fall edition of VanJS on September 27th! We're featuring two great guest speakers: Ria Carmin of EquitySim, and Shawn McKay from Semios Technologies. The event will be at VFS Cafe, located at 390 West Hastings Street just east of Homer Street.

Doors open at 6:30pm, and talks begin at 7pm.

1. Ria Carmin, EquitySim: Engineering + Design = Design Systems

I will be sharing my experience creating design systems and how it helps build scalable front ends and consistent UI. I will also share practical tips and code snippets.

- What problems do design systems solve?
- Graphic Design principles for component libraries
- Design Systems with Sass
- Design Systems with Emotion

2. Shawn McKay, Semios Technologies: Designing Systems with State Charts

Why does state management seem particularly difficult in JavaScript? Introducing an elegant way of visually drawing and designing state: state charts. State charts are a simplified representation of state machines used in computer science for over 30 years. Only now are state charts growing in use within the JavaScript community thanks to popular libraries such as XState & React Automata. Come learn about how state charts can simplify your applications and make your job easier.

3. Drinks
Join us for drinks after the event at the Irish Heather, located at 210 Carrall Street.
