JS Monthly, April Event

25 Apr

6:00 pm IG Index, Cannon Bridge House, 25 Dowgate Hill, London EC4R 2YA



Please note: The event is hosted by IG. Program will be as usual:

18:00 – Door open and pizza (and beer) is served

19:00 – Cross platform engineering – Lessons Learned \ Michael Asimakopoulos and Andy Novakovits

Cross platform technologies have changed considerably. Should you even write an app using one of them in 2018? What tooling, processes and best practices can’t you live without? Which problems will you face and how will you overcome them? How would you organise your team and project? Join us as we share valuable lessons from the last two years of engineering the Covve Ionic/Angular cross platform app.

19:45 – Sharing dependencies across multiple projects \ Deividas Karzinauskas

I will talk about my experience of shared dependencies extracted out in a separate package using https://www.npmjs.com/package/builder (by FormidableLabs) and working in a mono-repo with the help of Lerna. I will also touch on other ways of sharing code – simply having a separate npm package, git submodules and the good old package.json, i.e. not sharing dependencies.
