Learn, discuss and practice JavaScript with MatchesFashion at The Shard

6 February 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

An engaging, inclusive and collaborative environment for new and experienced developers to learn, discuss and practice code, with a couple of short opening talks from Matches Fashion, details of those to follow. Most of our members at this meetup will be interested in JavaScript, React and Front End web development.

There will be two talks from a front end engineer and a full stack engineer from Matches Fashion:

Web Performance Micro-Optimisation Using gzip: What it is, how it works and how to leverage it, by Samuel Kinder.

Fighting Code Rot at MATCHESFASHION.COM, by Fabio Albertin.

There will also be a JavaScript for beginners session by Tom Williams about some of the ways you can use JavaScript to add interactivity to a web page, aimed at members with no or little programming experience.

You’re then free to spend the rest of the evening: • Chatting/networking with other developers

• Building technical projects in groups or individually

• Pair up on code challenges

• Learn about people’s career experiences in software engineering We are beginner friendly and you don’t need to know anything about programming to join us.

Ideally bring a laptop, but it’s not required. Wifi and pizza are provided by Matches Fashion, who you can find out more about here: https://www.matchesfashion.com/careers
