Source maps, huh, yeah. What are they good for? Absolutely… some things.
We have an extra special treat this month thanks to our gracious hosts and good
friends at Spredfast: Ben Vinegar is coming
all the way from “San Francisco” to tell us everything about how source maps
work. Join us Tuesday
You may already be familiar with source maps. They let you debug your original, unminified, and untranspiled code in the browser. But have you ever wondered how they actually work? Ben will take a deep dive into the source map format to see what’s under the hood, exploring source map generation tools, parsers, and how to manipulate source maps directly for fun and profit.
Not only did Spredfast fly Ben out, but they are providing food and drink, so be sure to tell them thanks!
- Where: Spredfast — 200 West Cesar Chavez Street — 3rd Floor of the Silicon Labs building on Colorado
- How: Parking is on the street, or you can bus, bike, rollerblade, segway, jet ski, or walk yourself down there and just not worry about it.
- Drinks and pizza will be provided.
- Take a look at the Code of Conduct
Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at Lavaca Street Bar where they have food, drinks, and 12 revolving taps.
If you’ve got any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Lon (@lawnsea) or Aaron (@aaronj1335) or Andrew (@drewml). Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter: @AustinJS
