"Burn It Down and Start Again: Principles of Modern JavaScript"
Heard about the latest JavaScript syntax? Seems like a day doesn't pass without a language update. And with all the focus on syntax changes, it's easy to miss the subtle principles driving JavaScript. Modern JavaScript doesn't just have new tools, it's composed differently. Don't use a feature without understanding why it matters. What problems does a new feature solve? How can new syntax make code easier to use and reuse? Modern JavaScript patterns follow four basic principles: predictability, readability, simplicity, and flexibility. In this talk, you'll learn how to think in modern JavaScript. We'll explore principles in modern JavaScript and how they apply to new syntax as well as upcoming language changes. Don't just throw new syntax into old paradigms. Write intentional code.

"Common Component Decomposition Pitfalls (And How To Avoid Them!)"
The popularity of component-based frameworks has led to a Goldilocks problem for many web development teams. Some teams have too many components, filling their code base with files and folders for components that don't have a clear purpose. Other teams have too few components, and the ones they have are monoliths containing way too much logic and becoming impossible to change. Let's discuss some common component decomposition pitfalls and strategies for making sure that the components you have in your system are just right.

"TypeScript in the Field: Magic or Menace?"
TypeScript is one of the most exciting and polarizing technologies tearing up Stack Overflow in 2020. If you wade through the torrent of headlines and developer blogs, you may encounter wild claims such as: "TypeScript reduced our number of unit tests by more than 38%," "I spent more time writing types than I did writing code," and, "What does it give me that a well-configured linter does not?" So, are you curious if TypeScript deserves all the hype and hot takes? In this talk, let's separate fact from fiction. Let's take a closer look at what TypeScript is, what it isn't, and how to use effectively it in your next production projects.

Come and join us for tech talks, food, drinks, and some great conversation! We can't wait to meet you!
