010PHP: Object Invariants, Immutability & You: Making Objects Do Your Bidding

After a successful June meetup with 2 speakers we are having another meetup with 2 speakers! 

Jeroen van der Gulik  – Object Invariants, Immutability & You: Making Objects Do Your Bidding

Code tells a story, but is it the actual story the original author wanted to tell? A lot of time the original story gets lost, as new functionality gets bolted on, or key parts are extracted, leaving behind an incomplete picture. These repurposed objects might pass all the unit tests but have no actual meaning in the context of the original story.

We will take a look at how we can more easily communicate the purpose of code to future developers, by introducing contracts and immutability, and using explicit context bound language, to give meaning to the code and keep the story whole.

Frank de Jonge – ReactJS – Frontin’ like a Back’er

As back-end developers, our skillset is pretty much useless in the front-end… WRONG! ReactJS allows you to re-use the skills you already own to create javascript application that don’t hurt your brain. Learn how to create stateless UI’s that are easy to reason about, compose nicely, and are easy to re-use.
