Speaking Sessions

  • TypeScript in Practice

    11:00 AM Saturday   Room: Fireside C
    Are you interested in TypeScript, but not sure where to start? Like most modern web development, it can feel like there are too many options and no obvious answers. This talk will share best practices for integrating TypeScript into both Node.js and Webpack+React/JSX workflows, how you can benefit from the features TypeScript offers, and answer common questions about TypeScript.

  • Understanding Functions and "this" in the World of ES2018

    3:45 PM Saturday   Room: Town Square A
    The "this" keyword has long been a source of confusion, and new features added to JavaScript in recent years have muddled the picture even more. This talk will walk you through the details of how "this" works in the context of modern JavaScript. We'll cover the differences between function declarations, function expressions, arrow functions, object-shorthand function notation, and class fields, as well as best practices when integrating with other ES2015+ goodies.
