Contentful London Developer Meetup
Public
Details
Save the date because we're back in London! After a long break, Contentful will return to London for a fun and informative developer meetup.
Join us at the Green Room (101 Upper Ground) on October 26 starting at 5:00 pm. The night will start off with a quick round of lightning talks and then we'll do a deep dive into some neat topics with some amazing speakers. We will also be having an evening watch party for Fast Foward Live where we will be announcing Contentful updates and exciting new product launches, and more!
The Talks
Navigating the Seven C's
Taz Singh, Founder of Guild
Getting started in the software industry is hard. Taz will outline the lessons learnt from his journey as an 11-year-old kid trying to make a video game by learning JavaScript to supporting Toronto’s software community & mentoring developers to progressing through the industry & scaling up software teams.
Arrows (At Length)
Steve Ruiz, Founder of tldraw
Love linking lines? Join Steve in considering the humble arrow as both a programming problem and a user experience challenge. In this talk, he'll present the many complex problems and solutions that he has encountered when working with arrows in his open source library perfect-arrows and later in tldraw (tldraw.com). With a narrow scope and plenty of animations to guide the way, we'll look at intersections, arrow heads, arrow head angles, and all of the different user interface issues behind authoring and adjusting arrows between shapes, other shapes, and points.
Lightning Talks
Some special guests...and you!
A Contentful friend or two will be presenting lightning talks. Plus, we’ll open the floor to attendees so if you have something you’d like to present for about 5 to 10 minutes we’d love to see it!
