Sheffield JS

  • Two short talks this month, followed by socialising :)


    "How I ended up automating my curtains and shouting at my laptop" by Luke Bonaccorsi (@LukeB_UK)

    We encounter automation every day and may not realise. It could be a set of
    traffic lights, a thermostat or automated tests for our code. It all works
    to make our lives easier and more efficient.

    A couple of years ago I started working on a chat based automation system
    using JavaScript in my free time and in this talk I'll share my progress,
    my reasons for doing it and what I'd like to do with it in the future.
    Hopefully I'll inspire you to embrace automation in your daily life.


    "Proxy objects" by Caolan McMahon (@caolan)

    A short demo of the relatively new (ECMAScript 2015) JavaScript Proxy objects - how they work, and what they might be used for.
