Front Endgineers London November

Thursday, 15th November at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by Front Endgineers London in November 2018

This month's Front Endgineers will be exploring the different interactions and sentiments that will aid customers and businesses. Come join us!

Google Assistant: Interactions and Sentiments aiding Customers and Businesses

You can use Dialogflow and Google Cloud Platform for many reasons, we can create interactions to be used within your own communities, may it be a conversational app for families, companies, sports; to help workflows for both customers and businesses. Sometimes it can be a bad thing to talk to an automated conversation if it is not well-designed. These pieces of technology can also help you escalate the conversation to a real human, as it can help you detect when human intervention is needed by using the ability of sentiment analysis, leveraging both sides of AI and Machine Learning in one computer-human interaction platform. Everyone at all levels is welcome to attend this talk!

Junior.next()

Life as a “junior” developer can be intense, overwhelming, but rewarding. Hundreds of tools available, jargon for days and endless questions. Let’s explore, through the eyes and thoughts of a recent junior dev, how employers, mentors and communities, can better support the juniors they work with. Including what junior devs can be doing now to move on to the next level.

Since then Tara has become a STEM ambassador and is passionate about encouraging and inspiring young people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career in tech.

Crash Course in ARIA

Native semantics are king when it comes to web accessibility. They provide the out-of-the-box compatibility with a range of assistive technologies. However, the web commonly balks standards. There are no native accordions or tab panels tags, for example. ARIA (accessible rich internet application) seeks to address this. Well implemented, it can dramatically boost a websites accessibility. Poorly implemented, it can make matters much worse. This talk will provide a robust grounding in how to leverage ARIA to improve your websites.
