Join us for the first "open source" edition of VanJS on February 27th! We're featuring two great guest speakers: Stephen Belanger of Elastic, and James Doyle of Sycle. 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. Stephen Belanger, Elastic - Async Iterators, a new future for streams

Async Iterators make for an exciting new stream-based future. They unlock a lot of possibilities that have long been quite complicated to achieve with Node.js style streams. This presentation will demonstrate a few examples of how async iterators can enable easier streaming of data from different sources and simplify callback and event systems.

2. James Doyle, Sycle - Getting familiar with Typescript

Typescript. You've heard about it, you've seen it used on a ton of big projects, even your parents are talking about it. So what is it? What problem is it solving? And finally, what overhead does it add to a project? In this presentation, we will answer all these questions as well as talk about the Typescript language itself

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