Upcoming talks

I'm speaking at a variety of events in London and the rest of Europe. Do come by and say hi!

JS Roundabout

London

Talk: "From front-end to node.js" Key takeaway: After this session you will be confident to use your JS skills to write efficent node.js applications that can act as API for your front-end. We have a look how-to transition from a front-end developer to full-stack utilizing node.js While both is just writing Javascript there are still some key differences that you should be aware off.

MCubed

London

The new hot thing everybody talks about is “edge computing” – but what does that mean? Currently most “smart devices” are not all that smart. Most of the smarts are in the cloud. The end device just sends out all the information it gets at all times and a remote server tries to make sense of it. For lots of use cases, especially time sensitive ones, the network connection has always been the bottleneck, sending more and more data over this network is unlikely to help so lets try to delegate some of that work! We’ll explore where it can be particularly strong, how it is used currently, what we can hope to achieve and how you can start leveraging it yourself!

Key takeaways

  • How to use native promises in node (ES6)
  • What are generators and how to use them in node (ES6)
  • What is async/await and how to use it in node (ES7)
We look at depth into some of the new featueres in JS/node and understand how native promises, generators and async/await work in node. After this session you'll not only understand how to use them in your projects but also the underlying concept and how they work under the hood.

About Me

I was born and grew up in Germany and already as a kid I started to code. I had a little model train hooked up to a computer running MS-DOS at the time and could write little QBasic scripts to make the train go and stop in particular patterns. Since then I've been working with a variety of companies both, in Germany and the UK until I started freelancing to really focus on projects that really make a difference!

As part of ES6 node finally has a native support for promises and generator. In this talk I'd like to introduce you to the concept and syntax of both, show you some ways you may use them in the real world and give a quick lookout what's up next.
