This is a somewhat personal post today. I’m currently in Las Vegas (which would be a story on its own) to
speak and attend our company’s Perform conference. Why me, as a mere
web developer with no customer contact? First, I do like to bring the developer’s view into the whole mix.
Second, I want to see the birth of a new product feature.

Now that my book is out, I dug up an old workshop I held almost one and a half years ago in Belgium at Devoxx. Devoxx is a special type of conference, unlike any other conference I’ve ever seen. And speaking at a cinema definitely is one of the things that get stuck with you. Anyways, here’s the 2 hour course (the rest of the show is a little off topic, intentionally), which is about 75% of the Gulp chapters in live coding.

Let’s make this a tradition! I love to watch conference talks. Be it live or on tape. And just like last year I try to collect the talks that I loved most. I know, since I started organising Script I began seeing conference talks differently. However, those are the ones I put my attendee-hat on. And let’s be honest: A good organiser needs to do that! So enjoy my list of talks I enjoyed most in 2016.

After years of attending conferences and gathering lots of impressions from
around the world, my buddy Sebastian and I decided to do our own thing.
We call it Script’17, and aim to provide an exciting,

I rarely talk about attending or speaking at conferences, but sometimes you just
have to point out some extraordinary events.

I’m so incredibly happy to have my first article published on Smashing Magazine. It’s a
6000 word long story about how we managed to bring roughly 2000 pages on a technology stack made for hackers. It took me
roughly four years to find a story that I’m eager enough to pursue, but in the end I think it totally paid off.
Working with Smashing Magazine, especially Vitaly and Iris, was a complete joy! Thank you again for the professional and
friendly work experience!
So everyone, enjoy the read and let me know what you think!

I gave a talk on the beloved “Speed Index” metric at this year’s Topconf in Tallinn.
I managed to put the video on Youtube, for all of you to enjoy:

So, Linz has a software conference. One that’s supposed to stay. I think it’s
about time. Linz has a wonderful IT community, with lots of great companies and
so many schools and universities specialised for software development. Except for the short-lived Kod.io movement (spanning Kod.io,
Codefront and Railsgirls in 2014), as well as some Linuxwochen now and then,
I hardly can remember any full-fledged Software conference.
So hey, we finally got one!

Recently I did some “The History of the web” talks for various institutions. While preparing the story to tell, I remembered one specific tale from 1997. It was a tale from the first browser wars, when Microsoft battled Netscape for world browser domination.

TL;DR: If you want to extend from CoffeeScript written classes, you can use
the ES6 class syntax to do so.
