⏱ Schedule:

6:30 PM - Welcome & introductions feat. Kevin Vanderbeken
6:45 PM - Talks begin…

💫Web scraping with JavaScript - Ashley Davis
Scraping stuff is generally...just the worst. Tedious, fragile, messy scripting... urgh. Sometimes though data isn't so readily accessible and we might find that the only way to get the data we need is to harvest it from web pages. You might even have to authenticate with the page before being able to get that deeply hidden info! Ashley is going to give us a deep dive into web scraping and how you can retain your sanity!

💯The Regular Top5.JS - Josh Wulf
The infamous regular blast of delightful JS information we adore - a quick rundown of what's new and magical in the world of JS.

Pizza thanks to PCCW Global and Alcorn group! Drinks thanks to Just Digital People :-)

🔬🏞 Micro Pull Streams - Kory Nunn
In classic-streams, streams push data to the next stream in the pipeline. In new-streams, data is pulled out of the source stream, into the destination. What!? How does this all work? ...And because it's Kory... how can we do it in the simplest and most micro and performant form? ;-) Come and find out!

⚡️Filling holes in Google Analytics - Ben O'Neal
Ben found that Google's Time On Page measurements were "woefully inaccurate". Appalled and in need - he solved it himself! He can now reliably and accurately track and chart the time. Come and listen to the unexpected challenges and pitfalls he had to overcome to get this business critical data!
