Agenda

Things I've learned maintaining OpenStreetMap

Andy Allan says:

Maintaining one of the world's largest non-commercial websites, OpenStreetMap, is a unique challenge. We're a small, volunteer-based development team, not professional software developers. I will illustrate some of these challenges with a mixture of technical and organisational tips, tricks and recommendations, that you might find useful for your own teams and projects too.

LiveView: stateful, server-rendered HTML

Yevhenii Kurtov says:

LiveView is Elixir's analogue to Hotwire that also helps to keep it closer to the server and contributes to the One Person Framework movement. In this talk, we will explore how the stateful model makes it different from similar technologies and what optimisations the Phoenix team did to make it feel snappy and deliver a world-class UX

Afterwards

When the talks come to an end we'll decamp to a local pub for some food, some drinks and some chat with your fellow attendees.

Of course, even though this is the socialising part and seems more informal, please remember that still we consider it to be a part of the meeting and covered by our code of conduct.

Venue & Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees.

Secure your place

Hopefully you all remember that physical meetings involve finite space and so to be guaranteed entry you need to register via ticket tailor.

We are trialling a new ticketing platform, Ticket Tailor. Do let us know how you find the user flow on it.
