Vue Vixens Skulk - The Vue Vixens *FREE*

Vue Vixens is an initiative that aims to create workshops to teach Vue.js in a cool and fun way to foxy people who identify as women.

Let's Learn GraphQL:The End of REST - Jennifer Bland

GraphQL is a technology that is poised to replace, or at the very least, drastically change the way APIs are designed and presented. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn GraphQL from the ground up. We start with creating a backend server using Node.js then learn about schemas, mutations and using GraphiQL to test queries. By the end of this workshop, you will understand how to install and utilize GraphQL.

Pre-workshop setup: - NodeJS installed on your computer - Text Editor (Atom, VIM, Sublime Text, Visual Studio Code, WebStorm - Terminal - Create an account on mLab

Rea11y Simple A11y: A Focused Accessibility Workshop - Chris DeMars

Accessibility on the web is increasing in visibility, yet some web creators are still unfamiliar with how to create an amazing, accessible user experience. Spoiler alert, it starts with design, but what happens after that? In this workshop, I will walk the attendees through a site that has multiple violations, and a low score in Lighthouse. I will also touch on aXe Core, what it is, and how to use it. After we comb through the site, I will introduce easy wins like semantic markup, alt attributes, and ARIA labels to remove all violations. You'll walk away with the knowledge to build your sites with accessibility in mind.

Get Flapping with Flutter - Pearl Latteier and Abraham Williams

Flutter is a new tool from Google that allows you to quickly create beautiful native apps for iOS and Android from a single codebase. We'll take attendees on a tour of Flutter, highlighting its extensive widget library and tools for speedy development. We'll show attendees how Flutter works, how it compares with other cross-platform frameworks, and how to create and test Flutter apps.

Next-Generation End-to-End Testing with Cypress - Amir Rustamzadeh

In this hands-on session, we’ll dive deep into using Cypress, an open-source tool that enables us to easily and beautifully write flake-free, reliable, deterministic E2E tests for our web applications. Like a good friend, E2E tests should be there to give us confidence in the software we ship down the wire.

We're Not in East Egg, Anymore: GatsbyJS in Practice - Brandon Kearns

Did you know that Gatsby.js is much more than a static site generator?

Well, let's build something to find out just what makes Gatsby.js not only an excellent choice for your personal website but also a great option for client and production sites, also.

In this workshop, we'll build a few different sites with Gatsby in order to learn how: Gatsby sources data (from almost anywhere) using GraphQL Gatsby generates your site as a progressive web app (PWA) and why that matters Gatsby simplifies deployment of your site by building it as static files liberating the developer experience can be with Gatsby.js

Attendees can expect to leave with at least one deployed Gatsby.js site.

(Based on the desires of the attendees and time permitting, we will also walkthrough hosting a Gatsby site at your own personal domain name - I've done it and have not looked back since.)
