We are co-hosting another Modern Web event!

MAKE SURE YOU RSVP AT TRIANGLE MODERN WEB FOR ACCURATE HEADCOUNT
Speaker: Jeff Mahoney, Software Developer, IBM Watson Health
The answer is yes. In this presentation, we will walk through training a neural network using BrainJS, a wonderful library that allows us to do this in a language most (all?) front-end and web developers are familiar with. Come and watch the birth of SkyNet with JS!
Speaker: Marcus Hellburg, lead developer advocate at Vaadin, helping developers learn about modern web technologies, background in embedded systems but has worked on everything web related for the past 15+ years.
“Hands-on with PWA and Web Components”
The web is turning into an application platform. Web Components give us a way of defining reusable UI components. Progressive Web Applications improve performance in poor network conditions. You can install them on your phone and they can send you notifications of important events.
In this presentation, we'll learn the basics of Web Components and Progressive Web Applications by building a small application from scratch. After the presentation, you will have the skills needed to get started working on your own PWA.
Speaker: Peter Elbaum, Software Engineer at Smashing Boxes
“Cambridge Ana-cynical: Understanding the Facebook information scandal and its APIs”
Speaker: Jay Phelps, Reactive programming nut and compiler enthusiast. He is the Chief Software Architect at This Dot, previously a Senior Software Engineer at Netflix. Lover of all things open source, RxJS core team member and author of core-decorators, git-blame-someone-else, and co-author of redux-observable.
“Help me WebAssembly, you're my only hope!”
WebAssembly (aka wasm) is a new, standardized compilation target for the web, shipping in all modern browsers. But since it's so low level it can be difficult to see how it will revolutionize the next generation of web apps–and definitely not just games and C++! In this talk, Jay will reveal what it is, how you can use it today, and the incredible opportunities it will unlock in the years to come on both the Web and on Desktop.
