A Better Technical Interview


Talk by Sam Jones @samjonester

Technical interviews are scary! They often involve pairing, but not the way we do it in real life. Let's discuss a better way to handle technical interviews than playing buzzword bingo and solving algorithms as fast as we can!

Isomorphic Clojure Web Apps


Talk by Brian Hurlow @bhurlow

A talk about techniques for developing websites using isomorphic Clojure code – so Clojure(script) that runs on the jvm and in the browser sharing as much generic code as possible. This opens up areas lots of interesting possibilities for web applications – server-side rendering of React components, lots more code reuse, hot-reloading, this kind of 🔥. Many people have explored these techniques in js, but less so in the Clojure world.

Apostrophe: Philly's own node.js CMS


Talk by Tom Boutell @boutell

A lightning introduction to Apostrophe, an open-source CMS built entirely on node.js and JavaScript here in Philly. Learn how to create sites with contextual editing, custom widgets and custom content times with a minimum of code... and when there is code, it's all JavaScript.
