In September of this year, I experienced my first exposure to the art of public speaking. I gave a talk at ReactJS Wrocław #7 meetup. I already published my presentation on my blog and you can find it here. I’m glad that I decided to share my lessons learned while working on the Calypso project. I’m satisfied with the topic I picked, but I’m afraid I could do a way better job explaining code examples I presented. It looks like I’m going to have plenty of opportunities to work on projects based on React in the upcoming year. I’m looking forward to it and I hope to find another excuse to speak to the audience again.
FluxRedux, WordPress Rest API and many other front-end libraries.
Lately I wanted to explore more in-depth functional programming concepts. When I was looking for resources I found an interesting bundle (with 60% discount) from O’Reilly:
It turned out they are really nice because they present code examples from the different programming languages like: Java, Scala or Closure. That approach gives you a bigger picture how functional programming can be applied. I’d say that the book contains almost everything you can see in the related video. In addition, it’s more up to date and it contains a bit more details. On the other hand the video is much more interactive.
This is updated deck from internal training I made at Ciao back in 2009. It covers basic principles and use cases for jQuery library. What is very interesting, I didn’t have to do many modifications to the original presentation as jQuery API is very stable. The biggest change was replacement of event bind method with on implementation. Topics covered in presentation:
- Using selectors and page traversing
- Handling events
- DOM manipulation
- Mouse interaction and UI extensions
