❓ Questions/voting and feedback will be gathered using Slido for Q&A:
I'd be ever so grateful for this wonderful community of ours to get their thinking caps on now and contribute a talk of any length for any of the upcoming meetup monthly events. Your talks keep BrisJS alive!
🧩 Building microservices with Node.js - Ashley Davis - 40m (@ashleydavis) Ashley's literally written a book on microservices, so with his help, let's explore what he's learned! He'll take us through why and when to use microservices and how to build a basic microservice with Node.js. In this deep dive we'll see the ins and outs of this approach and how it can become a benefit in your architecture. (PS: Ashley will be giving away copies of his book Bootstrapping Microservices!)
☁️ JavaScript in the Cloud - Melissa Houghton - 20m (@meliss_houghton) A look at all the fun stuff you can do with JavaScript, in the cloud! Traditionally, JavaScript is the language of the web, and it still is. But today it's so much more. With the advent of server-side JavaScript and JavaScript support in major cloud platforms, JavaScript's power increased dramatically. From building, maintaining, optimising and deploying, the end to end development and delivery process is possible with JavaScript in the cloud. Cloud platforms give us the tools, elasticity and scalability to create high performing applications without managing the physical infrastructure. Take advantage of the cloud while using a language you already know: JavaScript!
Lots of opportunity for Q&A through Slido too! Get your thinking caps on and see you on the night!
