    Speaker: RJ Zaworski

    RJ Zaworski is a software developer working to build an open, inclusive, continuously improving internet. He will be speaking on keeping web-based applications running fast outside the development environment, which means coming to terms with a raft of external forces. Poor connections, browser quirks, and sheer physical distance are all conspiring against the end user experience.

    From script blocking to browser caching, this workshop will develop a framework for recognizing common frontend performance issues and introduce tools for addressing them. Make it work; make it right; make it fast.

    Unix & Git for Everyone Workshop

    Code Fellows

    Git is everywhere. Creative or engineering, you have directly encountered or will encounter Git in the workplace. Regardless of work style or team size, it is the tool that everyone should be using.

    Unix is the basis for everything from personal computers and cellphones to super computers and web servers. Understanding the principles of how Unix works is essential to being an effective developer.

    In this one-day workshop, you will be introduced to Git and Unix and get up to speed on concepts and workflows in no time. You will discover how working in the command line isn't all that scary, understand how to move between projects with just a few key strokes, and gain confidence with the steps involved for a common Git branching strategy. In addition, you will learn the brief history of Unix and some of the underlying philosophy of the Unix and Unix-like operating systems.

    Cloning isn't just for sheep and galactic empires. Together we will all create and share GitHub repositories using the Unix command line.

    Space is limited. Sign up now to reserve your seat.

    General Public: $250 Incoming Foundations II, Bootcamp, and Development Accelerator Students: $50
