    Clojure PDX: Constructing Interfaces with re-frame w/ Matthew Lyon

    We've had a few presentations on using re-frame and continue to get many questions on this fantastic tool. There is a lot to learn but you will be rewarded when building single page apps. So this month our own Matthew Lyon will present:

    Constructing Interfaces with re-frame

    I’ve talked to many clojurists who are curious about front-end programming but don’t know where to start. They haven’t done front-end work before, they’re unfamiliar with JavaScript or React, and they don’t understand how those pieces fit together. I’ll walk through what a ClojureScript development environment looks like; what makes front-end programming different and how React, reagent, and re-frame fit into this; how to create views with Reagent; how to manage state and the outside world with re-frame; and how to effectively debug your front-end code.

    Matthew Lyon has been building the front- and back-ends for web applications for over twelve years, and with Clojure for three years. He enjoys creating interfaces for helping people work through complex interactions.

    PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) CryptoParty

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    With increased regulations for ISPs to track consumer data and the ever-present possibility for fraud, keeping our internet activity private is more important than ever. CryptoParty is a decentralized movement with events happening all over the world. The goal is to pass on knowledge about protecting yourself in the digital space.

    Join Bhavna Soman of Intel, Justin Mitzimberg of Cylance and Information Security professionals from all over Portland as they cover secure browsing, password security and management, two-factor authentication, and setting up VPNs to protect your privacy. They will also be available to discuss any advanced questions or specific issues.

    CryptoParties are free and open for everyone, but are especially valuable to ​those without prior knowledge and haven't yet attended one.

    To try the tools and apps directly at the CryptoParty, bring your laptop or smartphone.

    Puppet Event Code of Conduct: https://docs.puppet.com/community/community_guidelines.html#event-code-of-conduct

    Purpose: PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
