February 2022 Meeting

The February 2022 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 21st of February, from 6:20pm to 8:00pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm).

Full registration details are given below, but do note that we will only be sending out the zoom meeting url to people who have registered, because we have limited places, so please do it.

Agenda

It's our annual ⚡️lightning⚡️ talks event. All short talks, all the time. As ever, we're still looking for volunteers (we have room for up to eight of you), so get in touch talks@lrug.org, if you've got something to say.

Javascript in Rails: A New Hope

Frederick Cheung:

Tired of slow webpack builds and daunting configuration files? Find out how the new css-bundling and js-bundling gems can roll back the years and make javascript in rails fast and simple again.

Getting past enemy images

Pablo Dejuan:

Enemy images hinder our communication with people when we need them the most: to agree with another colleague over a code review, to interview a third party, to have an important conversation with our boss or direct report (technical or non-technical topic). In this talk we will raise awareness and cover one way of overcoming the initial enemy image to get a better outcome for us and our team.

Got something to say? Get in touch! talks@lrug.org

Afterwards

The best we can do at the moment is promise that a few of us will hang out on the zoom call after all the talks are done to blather on for a bit. It's a poor substitute for actually meeting up in person, but we'll persevere with it. If you have some ideas about an alternative approach, then let us know at organisers@lrug.org.

Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees, even though we are all in our own little bubbles.

Secure your place

Even in a virtual world there are limited places for attending the meeting so you need to register via eventbrite. The link to the zoom meeting will only be sent to registered attendees on the day of the meeting, around about 6pm. Keep an eye out for the email and check your spam just in case.

Do prepare yourself in advance by downloading the zoom client.
