Stride to participate in BrooklynJS

Oct 12, 2015


BrooklynJS is an event that brings together the local JavaScript community to network and to learn about new methodologies and practices in the technology industry. For the next BrooklynJS event on October 15th, Stride's own Amanda Kievet will be speaking about Zen and the Art of Progressive Enhancement.

In Amanda's words: "This talk is about how to use progressive enhancement to craft accessible, well-structured and device agnostic code. As a junior developer, I found the world of endless JS frameworks intimidating and chaotic, with battles being waged between evangelists on Twitter. Using progressive enhancement creates a more Zen experience by keeping your codebase simpler and easier to reason about. In a world where new frameworks, libraries, and architecture styles are going in and out of fashion with the seasons, everyone could use a little more Zen.”

This is a great event to connect with fellow JavaScript programmers while enjoying curated talks, musical interludes and beverages with the NYC tech community.
