An IDE is an Integrated Development Environment and where we live in our day to day lives as working or learning developers. We’ll look at some of the different IDEs out there, functionality and how they compare, as well as extensions and keyboard shortcuts that can make your life easier, including making your own code snippets.

This talk and the exercises will be led by Jeff Kranenburg, a senior tutor at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology in web and software development.

5:30pm – Doors open, catch up.
6:00pm – Welcome
6:10pm – IDE Talk and Practical Exercises
7:30pm – CodeChallenge reviews (see the #codingchallenges channel on our Slack for more info)
8:00pm – /end

To prepare:
Make sure you have your chosen IDE on the laptop you’re bringing, and while there are no wrong choices, we will be looking a lot at one of the most popular: Visual Studio Code.
Make sure you’ve joined our Slack channel, as we often share resources through there on the night.

What to bring:
Your laptop + charger
Drink bottle
Your IDE, extension, and shortcut suggestions!

/dev/talk: Insight into Event Patterns – Hamilton – 27 November 2018

/dev/talk Hamilton meetup on events.

What

I’ll be taking us on a deep dive into event driven code, exploring different event patterns and real world implementation challenges. I’ll be talking about the two different types of events – domain events (user actions) and operational events (logs). I’ll discuss some patterns for thinking about event streams, e.g. coalesce, throttle / debounce, grouping by time, count, moving windows of events, projecting.

This is an open event, questions are welcome any time.

This event will be recorded.

As usual pizza and beer afterwards and a big thanks to our sponsors Company-X and Soda.
