Front Endgineers: "Sizzling with Bacon.js"

Thursday, 10th April in London

This meetup was organised by Front Endgineers London in April 2014

Overview

Tired of callbacks? Is local state getting you down? Are you finding it difficult to combine asynchronous event streams? Bacon.js can help.

Refactoring Legacy Code

Is Legacy JavaScript the bane of your existence? It's not something you aim for but changes over time can leave the codebase in a less than ideal situation. Sugendran works in a repository that usually sees 30+ commits to master per day, with over 100 engineers having their fingers in it over the last 5 years. Recently he refactored a portion of it. This talk is about his recent experience refactoring the FeedList, one of the central features of Yammer that has been around for over four years. The ups, the downs, and the face palms.

Sugendran Ganess

Sugendran Ganess is a programmer based in London who works for Yammer. He started out with an economics degree, but then successfully fell into a programming role in 2007. Never looking back, he has since worked in 3 countries and on many different stacks.
