Functional Programming in JS with Bill Kidwell on Thu Sep 21

Published on Sep 5 2017

This month Bill Kidwell is going to discuss Functional Programming in JS. Functional programming promises cleaner, more testable code, but it comes with a lot of theoretical baggage. We will avoid the more technical aspects of functional programming that are commonplace to users of Clojure and Haskell and focus on what we can use in our code today. After a light introduction of map and reduce using Ramda.js, we will work through a practical example that lets us explore some useful aspects of the library, and functional programming in general. If you are a functional programming novice, prepare to come away with a better idea of map, filter, reduce, pure functions, functional compositions, and even how curry might spice up your JavaScript.

CQRS and Event Sourcing:

From the PHP/JS crossover meeting on Aug 16 2017. Thanks Zach!


Javascript + PHP Crossover Meeting - Command/Query Responsibility Segregation with Event Sourcing on Thursday Aug 17

Published on Aug 10 2017

This month we’re meeting the evening of Thur Aug 17. We’re at the Lexington Central Library Room B on the 4th floor at 7PM.

Javascript + PHP Crossover Meeting: New Techniques Special Topic
Command/Query Responsibility Segregation with Event Sourcing

Our friend and fellow code-monkey Zach May is going to show us something really interesting called Event Sourcing. As developers, we often find ourselves surrounded by CRUD. In fact, many projects begin (and end) trying to figure out how we’re going to create, read, update, and delete rows in a database. In this talk, we’ll look at CQRS (Command/Query Responsibility Segregation), a different way we can think about our software and why it’s cool. Then we’ll look at one particularly mind-bending way of implementing CQRS called Event Sourcing.
This should be fascinating!

Come On Out!

KYJSUG + KYTechTalks - Stephen Harper Demos IoT w Particle Photon - Thursday June 15 at Awesome Inc

Published on Jun 12 2017

This month we’re meeting the evening of Thursday June 15 at Awesome Inc (348 E Main St) at 7PM. The very kind folks at Awesome have offered to help us host this month and we’re very grateful to them.

This month we’re doing another of our tech talks crossover meetings where we will be covering technologies and platforms beyond javascript that you may already know or that you might be interested in being exposed to.

This month Stephen Harper from Big Ass Solutions explores Creating a Simple Internet-Connected Power Switch and Web Dashboard Using a Particle Photon and .NET Core. He’ll demonstrate how quickly a developer with little to no embedded firmware experience can get an IoT prototype device up and running. Using a Particle Photon and a simple relay a basic smart switch prototype we’ll connect to the Particle cloud. And using Webhooks on the Particle cloud we will connect the device to a .NET Core web dashboard via a web API and HTTP endpoints. We will also build an interface using MVC to show the status of the connected switch and provide a button for simple on/off control.

Friends, don’t miss it. This should be really cool. We’ll see you Thursday the 15th.
