About this event

We have made it through the Women Techmakers Berlin's JavaScript autumn course

Come celebrate with us: After 8 weekly meetings, where we went from learning the fundamentals to having your a full backend application deployed with Docker, we are presenting our projects, right after we'll hear a great talk by no other than Chris Heilmann!


18:30-19:00 Networking

19:00-19:15 Welcome notes

19:15-20:00 JavaScript is a buffet, not a main course / Chris Heilmann

Now that you learned about JavaScript, you're ready to take on the world as JavaScript runs everywhere.

The trick is to not get overwhelmed and to find what makes you happy as happy developers are effective developers. Chris Heilmann has a 18 year old history of using the language and wrote many books about it. Let him help you

not get lost in the rabbit hole that is JavaScript in 2017.

About Chris Heilmann

Chris Heilmann dedicated the last 20 years of his life to make the web work and thrive. As a lead developer on some of the largest web products he learned that knowledge is not enough without teamwork and good handover. He dedicated most of his time since on educating, writing and sharing, presenting on average at 30 conferences a year. He strives to make code and coders work efficiently and get more done quickly without losing the understanding of what we do. He is the author of several JavaScript books and the Developer Evangelism handbook. He is currently a Senior Program Manager in Microsoft and spends a lot of time pondering how machine learning and AI can aid humans and replace jobs we're too important to do.
