DenverScript

Monthly DenverScript Meetup

RSVP on Meetup. 

What's going on in JavaScript Land? (20 min) 

We'll be talking about new/exciting things going on in the industry. If you have something you think we should mention, feel free to tweet us @DenverScript. 

Shorter Presentation (10-15min): CSS Grid - Kyle Zucker 

The goal of this talk is to build excitement about CSS Grid. Finally, we can build 2D layouts with tools built into the browser, no hacks required!This talk will go thru a brief intro of the Grid spec followed by some my favorite selling points with cool examples. Sprinkled throughout will be personal narratives that I hope will convince you to forget the rest, cause Grid is the best! 

I’m an electrical charge organizer who enjoys the details a bit too much. Right now, I’m a recent Turing grad who’s coding, hiking, and looking for work, with a bit of stand-up comedy and guitar picking on the side.

Longer Presentation (20-30min): Lamb Curry: Functional Programming with Ramda—Hilary Denton. 

Functional Programming is the new hotness. It offers ideas like immutability and side effect free functions, which sound great...but it can all seem very overwhelming, especially when you're used to thinking about things from an object oriented perspective. Enter Ramada.js. Ramda tries to feel as much like just JavaScript as possible. You won't have to learn lamda expression in strings, or consed lists, and other native features of JavaScript. I'll overview core concepts like currying and composition and how the power of this great functional utility library.
