Modern Web Development Workshop
McMenamins Kennedy School

We all know that staying on top of recent web trends, tools, and best practices isn't easy. The Modern Web Dev workshop will explore a number of resources that will, at the very least, help you launch a simple, elegant website by the end of the day. If that's all you want—fantastic! If, however, you're interested in front-end development, whether you're just getting into the field or simply haven't had the time to keep up with the latest and greatest, you'll leave with a good understanding of a few different ways to build sites quickly, efficiently, and intelligently. We'll discuss Bootstrap, SCSS, Jekyll, Github, and even touch on responsive design and jQuery. Everything we'll cover is free/open source, smart, forward-thinking, and made by developers for themselves and their peers—built as solutions to specific problems.

Visit modernwebworkshop.com for all the details about the workshop and registration info.

Front End PDX - Monthly Front End PDX Meetup
Connective DX

Unfortunately, tonight's speaker Micah and his family have come down with the flu, and he will not be able to speak tonight. We'll still hold the meetup, but we'll set up for a Bring Your Own Project night: bring a project to share (or get help with), or come ready to give help to others.
We're working on rescheduling Micah for February. We'll leave the talk description up for now to give you an idea of what's coming.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the final Meetup of 2017, we welcome back Micah Godbolt to talk design systems!

About the talk:
HTML and CSS are all you need to create a Design System that unifies the visual appearance of your products, but as soon as you want to create consistent behavior between applications, you'll need to turn to JavaScript. More often than not, using a modern framework such as React, Vue, or Angular will save you lots of time, and keep you from reinventing the wheel.

In this talk, I will discuss how moving interactivity into the Design System is not only a good choice today, but is most certainly how you will be creating Design Systems in the future. I'll also be discussing the React-powered Design System I've been helping to create which powers a few apps you might have heard of, including SharePoint, OneDrive, and Outlook for the web.

About the speaker:
Micah Godbolt, a Senior Design Developer at Microsoft, is a Front-end Architect, author, speaker, trainer, blogger and developer from the Portland area.

Event Details

​Food, drinks, and conversation beginning at 6:30. The talk begins around 7:00.

Parking is available in the parking lot directly across the street from the Connective DX office on Pettygrove. There are also bike racks available just inside the entrance to the building.

Front End PDX - Monthly Front End PDX Meetup
Connective DX

This month we're excited to have Josh Nelson join us to talk through making in-browser, multiplayer games, using a recent project called PlinkoJS as an example.

PRESENTATION DETAILS

Making a game is simple, right?

How about adding physics to it? What if we ran it in the browser and made it a real-time multiplayer?

I think you can see that very quickly what was once a straightforward challenge has ballooned into a much more significant undertaking. The browser is not a particularly friendly environment for multiplayer games, especially those that need to be responsive and real-time.

This presentation will walk us through core challenges that every developer will face when trying to make an in-browser game and how they can overcome them. Josh will highlight key concepts and solutions using a game he recently built in Node and React as an example, PlinkoJS.

The following topics will be covered:

• Games in the browser - The building blocks for a local, in-browser game
• Network architecture - Connecting players over the internet
• State synchronization - Creating and maintaining an authoritative game state
• Optimizations - Reducing bandwidth and latency estimation

SPEAKER DETAILS

Josh Nelson is a software engineer with a management background from Portland State University. He has experience working with technologies such as React, Node, Rails, Backbone, and more. He enjoys tackling challenging problems and working with others to build robust systems.

• PlinkoJS: www.plinkojs.com
• GitHub: https://github.com/joshcnelson

EVENT DETAILS

​Food, drinks, and conversation beginning at 6:30. The talk begins around 7:00.

Paid parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the Connective DX office on Pettygrove. On-street parking is available in the neighborhood as well, of course, if you can find it. There are also bike racks available just inside the entrance to the building.
