Speaker: Mat Warger

Bio:
Mat Warger is a senior software consultant with Keyhole Software in Kansas City. He enjoys learning new concepts and has leveraged this curiosity in positions ranging from startups to the enterprise over the past decade. He can be found chasing the latest and (sometimes) greatest in a wide range of languages and platforms, including React, GraphQL, and the cloud. Find him on twitter @mwarger.

Abstract:
Most recent javascript frameworks bring a solid component model to modern web development, but how can you guarantee that your components work correctly? In this session, you learn how the features of Typescript can be leveraged to bring clarity and dependability when constructing components with React. Using Typescript can help to catch errors early in the development life-cycle. GraphQL and its type system can ensure confidence in your components while fetching remote data. This comprehensive approach ensures that your components behave as you expect, and allows you to eliminate run-time errors. Learn how using types can keep your users happy!

We're on the 4th floor in suite 455. Shoot me a text at 816.368.1337 if you need any assistance. Click here for event

Every Thursday, the members of Hammerspace gather to socialize, network, and meet new members of the space. We welcome the community at large to come down during this time to explore the workshop, check out all of the tools, fabrication equipment and work space made available to HammerSpace members, and ask questions of our community of Hammerspace users.

There is a concession stand and kids playroom available, and the evening is always the origin point of new and amazing creative ideas.
