We're not getting much response from meetup.com's email servers, so no one has the link yet. Let's release the kraken, and add the link here:
See you in the App!
As a special event, we've asked the folks behind the new Video Collaboration App, Jamm, to showcase their application, their team, and their company.
And to make it even more special, they're going to do the showcase on the Application Platform they've built!
We going to keep it to 30 or so Community members tonight, as we're all basically taking part in stress testing Jamm, but once we've gotten our sea-legs grab on tight as we'll be taking to the high seas sooner than you can say "social distancing".
And while we were hoping to assist in Social Isolation this month and provide a Live Stream of some very dedicated Developers, we can't help but look to the larger community and call a cancellation.
It's the first time in our 11 years that we're not meeting in a month, but these are extraordinary times, and while we have every confidence in supporting the safety of our speakers and team, it's the greater community we want to support as well.
While we ourselves had great support from some new partners such as Microsoft's Reactor here in Sydney, it came down to not wanting to put even one member of our community at risk.
We'll be back
SydJS is always proud to showcase teams and companies in our community that go above and beyond to create experiences and code that set benchmarks for quality and longevity.
The code grows and evolves across time — sometimes providing staff and customer stability and sometimes providing the same staff and customers new opportunity.
One of the teams we're lucky enough to get to showcase each year is our very own principle sponsor, Atlassian.
Atlassian has stood beside SydJS every month for over 10 years and their contribution to keeping our community buoyant isn't just in beer and pizza, but in support and inspiration of a great team of Developers that encourage the community at every meeting
All too often we're so busy struggling with code to see how powerful that code is and to see how much nuance that code can give us. Few of us work for a company and with a team that values being able to develop a solution that really empowers Developers in the way that Seek empower their team. You may have seen Seek's Open Source design system, Braid, https://github.com/seek-oss/braid-design-system.
If you don't happen to work with Seek, what can you do? We're here to help you.
One thing we all need to do as Developers is deliver code, and we'll show you ways to make that delivery work for you. Next up, we'll take a practical look at some TypeScript which will allow you to focus on being creative and allowing your type system to do what it does best. And what better way to be creative than to take a deep dive back into colour? Additive? Subtractive? It's all addictive!
