The Leeds Javascript group meet up in Leeds on the last Wednesday of every month. Join us for talks, beer and to meet a great bunch of people.

The goal of this user group is to form a community for Javascript in Leeds. Most technical companies now have to use Javascript in some way and the demand is growing with every new framework and NodeJS release. We want to be a place where any developer can come for advice, to show off what they’re working on or to just talk about the news (and drama) in the wider Javascript community.

This user group is for the community! If you ever want to pitch in or have an idea just get in touch via twitter https://twitter.com/leedsjs

Please note the group is intended for developers looking to expand their knowledge in a recruiter free zone only so whilst interest from recruitment consultants is nice we have a no recruiters policy.


First up this month we have Alex Fenton (@afeno90) who will be giving a talk titled “Atomic UI design with React.js”.

Here is a brief intro from Alex:

“What has really made React.js work at Sky is the approach we have taken using atomic design.

I will talk about how atomic design has worked for us and how it can work for others developing large applications.

When paired together atomic design and React.js make for a great development experience, and allows developers, and UX designers to make design decisions that can be propagated through a large application at pace.

As part of this talk I plan to give details of the technologies I used when implementing components at an atom (i.e. Button) and molecule (i.e. Price Panel) level, and the potential benefits that can be seen in production when adopting this approach.”

Next up we have Thiru Muthukumar (@Thiruppathi) introducing us to Polymer with his talk titled “Simplify & Amplify with Polymer”.

Here is a brief intro from Thiru:

“Are you looking to build a cutting edge web app?

In the era of framework fatigue, #UseThePlatform and leverage new web platform primitives to build a better web! In this talk, I’ll talk about WebComponents & Polymer and how we can Simplify the app development.”
