About “Webpack”

This talk will introduce webpack in the most gentle, un-intimidating way possible. We’ll start with no config file, and build the simplest imagineable app. From that starting point we’ll see just how easy it is to add code splitting, chunk management, bundle visualization, and finish with some cool JavaScript toys like Babel and TypeScript.

About “Lightning Talks: 14”

Lightning Talks are a really fun event we put on every 3 months. Community members have 5 to 10 minutes to talk about JavaScript or topics related to JavaScript. We give preference to new speakers to strengthen our community. To participate: post your topic and presentation length.

Common talk themes include: problems you’ve solved, libraries you like, a cool blog post you read, something you’re working on now, or pretty much any other way you’re using JavaScript to achieve your goals. Please note that marketing pitches are not allowed; lightning talks are a community enrichment event.

Meeting: Feb 16 - React and Redux, without the tears

About “React and Redux, without the tears”

This talk will take you through Redux with React, but without the big, confusing, house of cards-like toolchain often presented in beginner tutorials. It’ll start by showing how you can get React; and ES6 transpilation, with JSX, up and running in literally minutes—without any gulp tasks, or even build steps required prior to running. The bulk of the talk will be a somewhat deep dive into Redux, covering best practices and common mistakes, and of course how React easily and beautifully ties in to turn your Redux store into a functioning UI.
