Thanks to everyone who attended the Lightning Talks @ MATC
last night. This was our biggest event yet, with 57 RSVPs!
I'd like to thank all the MATC students that took the time to come, and ask awesome questions. A big thanks for Richard Hsu, and Jonathan Kupcho for putting together stellar presentations as well.
Here are the presentation materials:
Speaker: Jonathan Kupcho
Topic: Frontend vs Backend
We've all heard the terms "frontend" and "backend" developer. What do we mean by these labels? If you asked 5 people to define these labels, you'd get 5 different answers. This talk will help you understand the nuances of frontend and backend development of modern applications.
Speaker: Andy Glassman
Topic: Approaches to Testing
Unit, Integration, End to End, Smoke, Failover, Load... The list of test types and approaches goes on and on. I'll attempt to hit on the major test types, test approaches, and their reasons for existing. I'll also go over some common roles within a development team.
Speaker: Richard Hsu
Scala is the most popular JVM functional language. In this talk I will try to go through everything I know about Scala; including brief language features, development environment, ecosystem, and how to keep up!
Thanks, and keep an eye out for the next meetup announcement. I'm looking into doing a presentation on Cassandra, or Couchbase.
