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. It is based on the successful model pioneered by ng-Girls, Rails Bridge and Django Girls initiatives. The format is a self-driven code lab completed in a workshop format in groups with mentoring by conference-goers and speakers who volunteer to help. The goal of the program is to familiarize women and those who identify as such in a supportive and inclusive location with Vue.js and general web and mobile programming concepts. Welcome to the skulk!

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

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.)
