Instead of having a traditional speaker, we're going to try a lightning talks meeting. We've discussed it with the a few of you and are excited to here everything you guys have to say. If it goes well, we'd like to have these 1 or 2 times a year, so please give feedback!
How it will work
- Show up to the meeting with a 5 minute (or so) demo of something that's useful to you in your work as a front-end engineer. This can be software, or patterns, or tools, or frameworks. In the past, just pulling up the website for a tool has been a totally easy way to have something to show without any slides to prep! (We encourage you to think about what you'll say though).
- Get up at some point during the meeting and plugin your laptop (we should have a default laptop if you don't need/have one) and give this (very informal) presentation.
- Watch everyone else share their best tips and tricks and tools!
We anticipate everyone coming with something that they'd like to share, but if there is a lack of people who are volunteering, then multiple non-contiguous talks by the same person will be allowed. Hopefully we have too many for that to happen, though!
