NordicJs 2014 - day 2
Yesterday I wrote about the day 1 of the NordicJs 2014 so go and have a look there for the events of the first day.
The day started like this:
Ellen Sundh: “Node.js physical interactions”
Ellen Sundh didn’t wear golden shoes or anything hipster-like, but the things she has done is really amazing! If you are interested in embedded stuff you should watch this talk when it comes online. Very exciting stuff. I’m currently building a rainmeter with .net gadgeteer, but this talk made me think about doing on the Arduino.
Douglas Crockford: “The Better Parts”
ES6 gets proper tail calls. "JS will be a real functional language." - Douglas Crockford #nordicjs— Steen H. Rasmussen (@steenhulthin) September 19, 2014
"Java programmers will go to their graves without knowing how miserable they are…" Douglas Crockford on class model inheritance #nordicjs— Yuri Vorontsov (@kwispel) September 19, 2014
"Don't use 'null' We have both 'undefined' and 'null' for the same thing, but the language itself use 'undefined'." Doug Crockford #nordicjs— Steen H. Rasmussen (@steenhulthin) September 19, 2014
Tiffany Conroy: “Lions and Tigers and Handling User Capabilities”
Tiffany Conroy talked about different strategies to manage user rights. The talk covered both server, client and UX strategies.
You shouldn't allow people to do something you're not allowed to do and then punish them for doing it. Communicate CAN do. UX @ #nordicjs— Fiona Rolander (@fionaosaurusrex) September 19, 2014
Reginald Braithwaite: “Duck Typing, Compatibility, and the Adaptor Pattern”
The talk by Reginal Braithwaite was about how the use of the adaptor pattern and how it may affect coding/architecture style at all level of a system. Very interesting ideas.
Kassandra Perch: “Stop the Fanaticism!”
Kassandra Perch was the next speaker. However I picked up my youngest son from kindergarden, so I didn’t see anything of this talk. Judging from the twitter response it was a good talk.
Hakim El Hattab showed a lot of projects he has been working on. I only saw a part of the talk, but what I saw was really cool.
Tom Dale: “The Road to Web Components”
There was another round of lightening talk, but I didn’t see that either - I was eating with my family.
Daniel Beauchamp did a great job as a host of the conference.
As a whole (seen from the livestream) everything was very well organised - very impressive for a new conference. Big applause.
Attendees don’t see it, but coordinating with speakers is a LOT of work for conf organizers. The NordicJS folks were over-the-top good.— Tom Dale (@tomdale) September 19, 2014
I hope to be able to attend in person next year.
Very last words (warning: opinionated)
