You've all heard of 'rockstar developers', right? You've heard the stories, you've seen the job adverts on LinkedIn? Well, in 2018, Dylan Beattie decided that it would be nice if EVERYBODY could be a rockstar developer... so he created a programming language called Rockstar. Rockstar was initially created as a joke... then people started to submit ideas, and pull requests. Come along to this talk and find out how Dylan took a parody specification written in a bar and used JavaScript and nodeJS to turn it into a real programming language - complete with a formal specification, a reference implementation and a test suite.

Dylan Beattie

Dylan Beattie is a systems architect, developer, and Microsoft MVP, who has built everything from tiny standalone websites to large-scale distributed systems. He created his first web page in 1992, and he's been building data-driven interactive web applications since the days of Windows NT 4. He's currently the CTO at Skills Matter in London, where he juggles his time between working on their software platform and supporting their conference and community teams. From 2003 to 2018, Dylan worked as webmaster, then IT Manager, and then systems architect at Spotlight (www.spotlight.com), where his first-hand experience of watching an organisation and its codebase evolve over more than a decade provided him with a unique insight into how everything from web standards and API design to Conway's Law and recruitment ends up influencing a company’s code and culture.
