BostonJS: The `.call()` is Coming from Inside the Function
I hope you’ve all donned your Halloween-themed Twitter names and inexplicably begun using the word “spoopy,” because it’s that time again: BostonJS.
If you’re strapped for last-minute costume ideas, fear not—we here at BostonJS Meetup Inc. have you covered:
• PhantomJS, the heeeeadless broooowser
• Android 2.3, the browser that would not die
• CSS, by always standing just a little bit off from where you’re supposed to be standing
• A future BostonJS speaker, by applying to speak at BostonJS
But let us not get so wrapped up in costumes, candy, and stickers that we lose sight of the true meaning of the BostonJS holiday: we’ve got some amazing talks lined up for this month:
Vorlon.Js - Debugging in a Multidevice World
Live Font Interpolation on the Web
Responsive web design can be tricky, especially with regards to typography. It’s easy enough to adapt the type styles we can control—`font-size`, `font-weight`, `line-height` and so on—to a wide range of viewports. Fonts themselves are pretty inflexible, though—we’re stuck loading every possible weight and style we could potentially need, across all our breakpoints. This talk will discuss the potential for new level of control and flexibility with our typefaces: live font interpolation, a method of allowing a font itself to adapt to its surrounding context.
Our sponsors for the evening will be Ryan Florence and Michael Jackson—co-authors of React Router and full-time software trainers at React.js Training. They’re bringing both of their React.js workshops to Boston, and they've provided a discounted ticket price to members of our group:
• React Fundamentals, October 22nd-23rd (in 9 days!)
• Advanced React, November 11th-12th
There's probably not a faster way to get you and your team up to speed on React and getting the most out of it than by learning from these two. Out of hundreds of attendees surveyed, 100% say they would recommend the training to a friend—and that’s all the percents there are.
We hope to see you all there!
