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.

 

Join us for a couple of great talks from Adam Hepton and Katie Fenn, as well as a chance to win a code for a year subscription to Frontend Masters!

Agenda:

• 6:30 – 6:45: People start arriving

• 6:45 – 6:50: Introductions

• 6:50 – 7:20: Adam Hepton – I Just Want to Code

• 7:20 – 7:35: Break with food and chat

• 7:35 – 8:20: Katie Fenn – Memory: Don’t Forget to Take Out the Garbage

• 8:20 – 9:25: Social & point that people can leave

• 9:25 – 9:40: Pack up and leave

Note: We will no longer be going to the pub after the talks. This is in the interest of inclusivity.

Talks:

Adam Hepton – I Just Want to Code

Developers can get frustrated in a variety of ways; in this talk, experienced technical manager Adam Hepton discusses what it’s like to be frustrated in coding for you and those around you, and what you can all do about it to help each other.

Katie Fenn – Memory: Don’t Forget to Take Out the Garbage

Memory is fundamentally important to any computer program. It’s a finite resource, and is limited on mobile devices more than it is on desktop. JavaScript does a remarkable job of hiding this complexity from us. What’s going on behind the scenes, and how can you fix problems when memory runs out?

This talk will be aimed at JavaScript developers of all experience levels and backgrounds.
