This month's meetup was once again held at the Facebook office. With the pizza and drinks arriving in good time everyone tucked in and got chatting.
Last week we invited Paul Frazee, co-founder of Beaker Browser to speak at our very first We love meet up about peer to peer. Our Tech Lead Viktor 'e-met' Paul via twitter when his blog 'The end of the cloud: A truly serverless web' went viral. We asked them to pick up their conversation about peer-to-peer and the end of the cloud in our Badger HQ so we could share their thoughts and opinions with you.
Last Wednesday, we hosted the first meetup under our new tech community brand welovetech.london. The idea is to host regular meetups, each with a different theme. The theme might be a particular framework or language or it could be something broader like “music and tech”.
We are very proud to be working with Pride in London on their events app to be in user's hands in time for the forthcoming festival. In this blog we're sharing some photos of what we've been up to.
The February edition of React London brought us to the World Remit offices located between Westminster and Victoria. The sound of drinks and conversation filled the room but noticeably absent was the promised pizza.
We all gathered for this month’s React meetup in the new Facebook office at Rathbone Square. The amount of beer, pizza and interesting topics was tremendous.
On 28th November, we went along to BIMA’s breakfast briefing on the Tech Trends that really matter for 2018, which saw six-minute talks from four speakers on their tech predictions for 2018 and beyond.
A new breed of peer to peer web technologies like IPFS and Blockchains is coming, that has the potential to change the internet as we know it and make the cloud and servers in general the thing of the past. But how does it all work and how can you benefit from it?
DevOpsDays London 2017 - a breath of fresh air in the land of conferences, showing us how it's done when it comes to Diversity, DevOps and Developers.
Accessibility is a massive topic, and, if you are a developer who doesn't have much control over the designs, it can feel like a lot of it is out of your control.
With a few simple coding changes, we can make our features accessible. In this blog post I will walk you through how I approach making an existing feature accessible in three steps.
You will know that the microservices pattern is very popular right now. For good reason, because it enables Evolutionary Architecture. Each service’s bounded context allows it to evolve on its own roadmap. This gives us great domain-based separation of concerns so we can move very quickly while being more scalable and highly available. When done properly.
After a brief summer hiatus, the React London monthly meet up made it’s way back to Skills Matter in Moorgate. Three very interesting talks followed....
Programming is a vast landscape, though you'd be forgiven to think otherwise. You just might've been sucked into the bubble of Ruby of Rails bonanza for the last 10 years. Or you've been busy solving the halting problem. Or maybe you've been building this language which has types for its type (types) and you have not written a line of it but it's all in your proofs. Or you are upgrading to Angular 5. But lately, you've been having this feeling at the back of your head: is this all there is? Surely not?
Last month I spent a week in a summer school in castle in Bertinoro, Italy, learning about programming language implementation. As soon as I saw friends talking about this summer camp my eyes were shining with excitement. It was a great opportunity for me to know more about research in programming languages and deepen my current knowledge on it.
This month’s React meet-up was at Skillsmatter (near Red Badger’s HQ); there was plenty of pizza, beer and React geekery.
Similar to the three pigs building progressively sturdier houses, we gradually arrived at solutions providing better maintainability and a more efficient developer experience. From beginning with straw, progressing to wood and now iterating further with stone, here is our story.
