We have some amazing talks planned for you!

Our lineup of speakers:

Matt Lavin - Software Architect at LifeOmic
Declarative behavior with GraphQL schema directives
Description: GraphQL schema directives allow you to declaratively share behavior between data resolvers on the server. If you want to share retry logic, or error handling, using directives is a good technique to explore. Directives also improve the self-documenting nature of schemas. You'll see how to create a directive and realize that it's easy enough to experiment with for yourself.

Rob Ocel
Introducing the PAMstack - a new framework for building sustainable development teams
In this talk we'll discuss the ideas around how to create an sustainable architecture for your team through the PAMstack, a new framework for creating inclusive development teams. We'll talk about some of the abstractions and tools you can use to enable the longevity and success of your teams to support junior developers, designers, project managers, and more. No application is too critical, complicated, or obscure to be able to achieve this.

We will also talk through how you can build a corresponding culture that allows inclusivity on your team, and why this is so critical to your business. We'll walk through processes you can incorporate, team roles, and how you can build a better template for the future.

Maria Lamardo - Front End Engineer, Pendo
Form Validation in Vue

Jannaee Sick - Front End Developer, MedThink Communications
Illustrating with Zdog - a pseudo-3D engine for canvas and SVG

Brandon Jones - Associate Front End Engineer at Pendo
Alexander Tseng - Associate Front End Engineer at Pendo
We'll be talking about Cypress, an automated end to end testing suite that is easy to setup, readable, and has built-in features like hot reloading, debugging to see what elements were selected, and no waits/sleeps in tests.
We'll discuss how Cypress can save time and effort in bugs prevention and how it differs from selenium-based tools and can enhance your testing.
