Meet.js is a non-commercial front-end meetup organized by Java Script passionates for their community. Each event brings number of people who want to learn from one another. The meetings are held in different locations, such as Pauza In Garden, Base, Tech Space Kraków, Drukarnia, just to mention a few.
“My idea is to connect people who want to present with those who want to listen to them. Meet.js is fully independent. I don’t want it to be associated with any particular location or sponsor, so I try to change them regularly. At the same time this is an open initiative that we want to spread among companies and people by presenting it at different locations.” said Andrzej Fricze, the coordinator of meet.js Krakow.
How to stir up the front-enders?
What exactly did they talk about?
The founder of Omni Calculator, Mateusz Mucha, told us the success story of his application for everyday calculations. This personalised calculator helps in daily financial evaluations and comes in handy when you are not sure what tip to give (tip calculator) or what is the final price of your special offer (discount calculator). The app is available both in Google Play store and in iTunes.
Last but not least, Andrzej Fricze and his confession of a developer heated up the audience with his speech about the reflections on front-end. In the eyes of the presenter an understanding of the past is needed for the future and many programmers make the mistake of not possessing the necessary knowledge about the history of certain programming concepts. His postulates sparked a discussion among all participates that left many questions unanswered. Most certainly that speech will be remembered for long by some of our guests.
