Meet up

Front Endgineers August

Wednesday, 15th August at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by Front Endgineers London in August 2018

Front Endgineers is back at CodeNode! At this month's event. we're joined by Simon Maples, Alex Dytrych and Shane Hudson. Don't miss it!

Common Sense of Web Performance

It is a good to sometimes step back and briefly consider what we already know. Using his varied experience from a wide range of projects, Shane Hudson takes a look at the cornerstones of web performance (and indeed the web itself), the fundamentals that underpin everything we do.

These thoughts about the way we build the web will give everyone a solid foundation of knowledge to think about, no matter their experience.

Shane Hudson

Shane is a web developer currently working with the team at NHS Digital on the 111 Online project to ensure excellent accessibility and performance of the website. He is the author of the book JavaScript Creativity. You can find him on Twitter: @ShaneHudson

Intro to GraphQL

GraphQL is quite a buzzword right now - but what actually is this new API technology from Facebook?

In this talk, we’ll take a look at GraphQL and understand what it is, why you might use it, and how it fits in with the existing API landscape. We’ll have a go at writing some simple GraphQL queries together, and hopefully you’ll go away excited about using this awesome tech in your own work & projects.

Alex Dytrych

Alex Dytrych is a freelance full-stack designer, developer, and educator. When she’s not creating apps, games, and tools for the web, she’s teaching other people how to. Alex has been using GraphQL in production on a number of projects since early 2016, and is super excited about introducing more people to the tech. You can follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/somehats, which you should definitely do, as her tweets are really good.

The npm Eco-System

This session takes some of the most common vulnerabilities found in the npm eco-system, breaks them down and shows how simple code can exploit them.

We'll look at examples in the wild that have been exposed, some more famously than others, before showing you how to guard against these important security issues.

Simon Maple

Simon is the Director of Developer Relations at Snyk, a Java Champion since 2014, JavaOne Rockstar speaker in 2014, Duke’s Choice award winner, Virtual JUG founder and organiser, London Java Community co-leader and RebelLabs author. He is an experienced speaker, having presented at JavaOne, JavaZone, Jfokus, DevoxxUK, DevoxxFR, JavaLand, JMaghreb and many more including many JUG tours.
