This meetup was scheduled since two weeks and we had 15 RSVPs on the meetup dot com event page. 14 people actually showed up on an early Saturday morning!
I arrived on location an hour earlier because there was no traffic in Port Louis. I met Jules and Shailen at the Bocasay office and they had very generously offered coffee and croissants for all those attending !
At around 10am we kicked off the meetup with a round-table introduction of all the attendees and what their interests are. We had vuejs devs, angular devs, game devs, backend devs and a marketing manager in the ranks !
- Developers are not just Code Writers - Cedric Poilly
- Reactivity Everywhere - Jules Michael Giovanni
Then the floor was offered to Cedric who had a very interesting monologue about "Developers are not just Code Writers". This session turned into a discussion where everyone pitched in their opinions and ideas.
The key take away was "Do not deploy on a friday afternoon"
Reactivity Everywhere (Vue 3 reactivity module)
The second session was by Jules who did an awesome presentation about "Reactivity Everywhere". This session covered the history of the concept of reactivity, and a hint about all the major frameworks that offer reactivity today.
The second part of his prez focussed on Vue 3's reactivity module that can be used outside of Vue.
In a demo, he used Vue 3 reactivity module in a CLI nodejs application with an amazing demo in the DBZ world. See video in the tweet below.
After a small break coupled with some networking sessions, we had a final small session where I asked all attendees to share two tips for everyone in the room. Some of the things that were shared are :
- The Bang Bang sign in unix cli
- Take care of your health
- Hold shift for horizontal scrolling
- Always chose clear over clever.
- Get a whiteboard in your office.
- Octotree to browse github repos
- Please put your IDE sidebar to the right.
This was a fun session and probably won't be the last !
Of course we had some post-meetup fun.
