Nrwl NX
Zenande Godongwana

Nx is a set of extensible dev tools for monorepos, which helps you develop like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
It will allow you to develop multiple apps both frontend and backend which reside on the same repo and can share the same library code, the same assets, and the same models.
It works well for large apps with large teams for effectively managing their shared dependancies, complete with a visual display for your depenancy graphs.
Nx will even go further to recompile and re-run the tests for app the apps the are affect by a change in dependancy, making working in a large team more efficient and less prone to errors.

Home automation with Mozilla WebThings

It's bed time, you change into your pyjamas, turn off the lights and climb into your warm bed. As you are about to fall asleep, you get a message from your neighbour, your garage door is open.

This happens to us all the time. So we come up with solutions like home automation. We spend tons of money on smart hubs and devices that collect data about us. We install apps on our phones without questioning whether this information is stored securely.

What if I told you, there was another way? Mozilla WebThings is a platform for connecting, monitoring and controlling devices over the internet. It is an open source implementation of emerging Web of Things standards at the W3C. The WebThings Gateway is there so that you can see everything in your smart home just by visiting a website. Using the WebThings Framework we can create our own custom components to connect to the Gateway and automate all of the things!

Join me in this talk, where I will show you how easy, secure and affordable it can be to get your house online!
