Reflections on two years of getting stuff wrong in public.
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ We have Natalia from the VueJS core team and GitLab with us!
Her journey through in the software industry is incredible. From learning to code at 11 using BASIC on a ZX Spectrum, to getting a Master's degree in Computer Engineering, to learning JavaScript while becoming a mother, she's been considered a "junior" through that entire part of her career πŸ˜…
It was through her involvement with the VueJS community, meeting friends like Sara Vieira, and working on VueJS itself, she started working at GitLab which rocketed her upwards to the next stage of her career πŸš€
These days, she's based in Amsterdam. However, a large part of her journey was from Ukraine where she's from. Natalia was kind enough to speak about the current situation in Ukraine with us as well πŸ™πŸ½
How we're progressively moving an actively worked on codebase (with 4 engineers) into SvelteKit, to enable us to progressively enhance the frontend with Svelte + Kit whilst minimising impact on product velocity.

Lift your state up to the URL. When to do it, how to do it and what's the new best way to do it.

πŸ™ŒπŸ½ We have the one and only Ujjwal Sharma with us!
He's doing deeply meaningful work specifying the JavaScript language and in the open-source software space, which is the part of the journey we know. However, what inspired him to get here is incredible to hear! πŸš€
From starting off by creating video games to play with his brother and pranking friends, he started learning more about computers. During high school, he participated in Google's Summer of Code which accelerated his passion. But this passion was quickly tested when he discovered the realities of studying computer science in university πŸ˜…
Thankfully, his involvement with communities kept his dream of moving to Europe alive. Through his involvement with the V8 team and NodeJS, he was able to join Igalia to work more closely with TC39 ✨

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡· Today we have Eleftheria from Greece with us, at CityJS Athens!
We talk about her journey into tech (which almost happen!), leading to learning Angular.js in the early days before transitioning into React & React Native πŸš€ These days, she had a Master's degree in technology - quite the achievement from almost not entering the field!
She spent the early part of her career in the startup space, where she had to wear many hats. One of which was to continually improve UI/UX even without access to a designer, which served as inspiration for her content at CityJS Athens πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨
Throughout her journey, she's leaned on the community to help her advance her skills, and she's chosen to give back by elevating developers through her content. Today, she's the Lead Community Manager at Hash Node, working with the team there to do the same πŸ™ŒπŸ½
My name is Robin Van Roy, and I’m a visual content creator with a love for code.
I’m currently working as a frontend developer at ING Belgium, am the co-owner of a creative agency called RedBonsai and used to dabble in teaching web development at the Erasmus College Brussels.

Did you ever try explaining programming to a non-developer friend or partner?.
You know, a variable is something that you can store something in, it can be anything and also nothing.
And a function is something that does something if you call it, but sometimes it doesn’t. Programming in itself is a very abstract thing. The fundamentals are often the most difficult and vague thing to understand, so how can we improve this?
What basic JS tools can we exploit to teach common practices and logic to a new-born developer in a more clear way? During this meetup I will discuss how visualization can help develop a strong problem-solving mindset.

It's Sveltember! Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn all about SvelteKit.
A common myth says that React is not suitable for big projects, and Angular is the best choice in these cases. This (mythbuster!) talk will go over some of the strategies we can use to scale up with React - and how we have been using it here at Picnic!

In this talk we are going to share what we learned by open-sourcing FlashList and how you can use this learnings to release your open-source project.

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.
