For several years now there has been a quiet revolution going on behind some of the best known financial company firewalls. You will probably be surprised that these well-known names are even in this space. American Express is more closely aligned with startups than you think. You would recognize all the current technologies that big enterprise uses. All the current full stack technologies node, react, web pack ... are in use at the big enterprise level. Enterprise is quickly moving into the progressive application space. There are many challenges when you have a profitable, mature organization. Glenn will explore the differences between using the current full stack technologies, adopting best practices, using Node.js as your backend, and page performance. Amex is doing its best to turn the way it works around, and give back to the community. This is a very new thing for Amex. Join in this talk to discover more!

Javascript Behind the Firewall

Mr Glenn Hinks

Glenn graduated in 1991, no google, no iPhones, no www. Things have gotten much better, he started off writing software for fly by wire aircraft, moved into satellite & communications, worked in investments, tried his very best at startups and is still having a wonderful time. For the last few positions, he has had great team building experiences. There are certainly a great number of great people to hire but you have to work to find them, woe them and mentor them. When Glenn looks back every graduate he has hired has ended up at a great gig at a great company even if they started off small. Currently, Glenn is really interested in the evolution of JavaScript and how all the new features are coming into the language. With Node on the backend and Webpack on the front you can do more with less code. Glenn is somewhat obsessed with Linting and unit testing and he think's Eslint has taught him as much about JavaScript as he has taught himself. Thank you contributors. In the day Glenn wrote in the parent languages of C & C++, these are great for some things. Glenn has gone from functional to class based back to functional and has had a great experience. He has really enjoyed the adoption of JavaScript as a fully fledged language. It is not just Brendon Eich's 5 day meander. It is now fully accepted in the enterprise. Glenn believes that Javascript of all the languages has adopted all the best practices that are only really given a nod and a wink in others.
