Jozi.js August - always optimistic

Aug 22, 2019 · Johannesburg, South Africa

We're really excited to bring you two more interesting topics for August. Alexander is going to share his experiences with ClojureScript in Node, and Daniel will be telling us all about server side react using NextJS. Join us for some drinks 🥤🍺🍷, pizza 🍕 and JavaScript!

• 18:30 - Food and blah blah.
• 19:00 - Writing ClojureScript applications for Node.js
- Alexander Pittendrigh
• 19:30 - NextJS - The Serverside React Framework - Daniel Edwards
• 20:00 - More blah blah.

Writing ClojureScript applications for Node.js
Alexander Pittendrigh (@alexander_za)

I'm going to provide a brief overview of my journey to functional programming, and my rationale behind picking Clojure as my language of choice. I will briefly talk about my perceived advantages and disadvantages of using Clojure. I'll try to briefly and gently show core Clojure concepts, and then we'll implement a rudimentary event sourcing engine using Clojure. The engine will borrow heavily from Redux so that participants have a common ground from which to build their understanding of what we're doing. Lastly, we'll run it on Node!

NextJS - The Serverside React Framework
Daniel Edwards

NextJS is a new a upcoming framework that puts a server-side rendering spin on ReactJS framework. While it is a powerful framework, it is not very well known. We have chosen to use NextJS as our primary front-end framework and we can definitely see the fruits of this choice such as better performance in terms of time to interactive among others. I will talk about why we have chosen NextJS, what projects we have used it in and show an analysis of the increased performance that the NextJS framework offers.

  • Jozi.JS

    JavaScript has become one of the most popular and widely used programming language in the world. In a large part, this is due to the amazing community and eco-system around the language. Jozi.JS exists to try and foster a community in Johannesburg, a meetup group dedicated to all things JavaScript!  The group meets on the third Thursday of the month from 18:30 to about 20:30. There are typically two speakers, on different topics: a ‘lightning talk’ of 15 minutes and a full presentation of 45 minutes. We h
