This meetup starts around 6:30pm with a short intro round: who are we, who are you and what are we doing here?! Then we're hearing 2 talks (~30min) about two developer related topics:
Talk #1: Diogo Serra (Field, @pdiogomserra) - Taking off: a Firebase story
Just like any tech project, at Field we had some time to discuss options regarding hosting providers. GCP, AWS, etc. We found our answers when we stumbled upon Firebase. We'll discuss the benefits of this platform, but not only that, we'll show you exactly how to start off running from the get go. From Serverless with Cloud Functions to storing and querying your data with Firestore.
Talk #2 Stefan Adolf (Turbine Kreuzberg, @stadolf): Performance Score 100% - How to build lightning fast websites with Gatsby and the JAMStack
It's lean, it's crazily fast and it's packed with features: Gatsby is a game changing static PWA generator. Stefan shows us how to use Gatsby to access arbitrary content sources with its unified GraphQL interface and build applications that even work when you're not connected to the internet. Stefan digs into fast, brainless deployments, automatically scoped CSS for your components and how to utilise plugins that help you generate sites that are not only crawlable and fast as hell but also fun to use.
If you would like to give a (lightning) talk or want to contribute anything that might be of interest for developers, we'd love to hear from you :) We're especially looking for contributions by the local Lisbon community, so if you're developing software in or nearby Lisbon, make sure to take your chance and we'll reserve a slot just for you!
During the breaks there's lots of room to talk about what you heard and discuss the presented concepts. If there's room for it and the talk topics are somewhat correlated, we're sometimes setting up a "speaker" panel with an AMA for the audience.
All speakers are advised to prepare their talks in a way that also beginners can follow them easily - but since this is called a "coding" meetup it's definitely helpful to have a little experience in software development.
And since we didn't mention it yet: thanks to our backing by Turbine there will be a choice of snacks, Pastel de nata (of course!) + some cold beer and some softdrinks.
All contributions follow our golden "*1 line of code*" rule, so demos and live code will be abound. You don't have to register to get into our stream but if you do, we send you updates (and nothing else) like the final YouTube URL of the stream before the event.
