## “Teaching CSS to JavaScripters” by Peter-Paul Koch (https://twitter.com/ppk)

Some JavaScript professionals do not know CSS as well as they’d like to. In order to help them, PPK decided to write a book “CDD for JavaScripters”, where he will explain CSS in terms that JavaScripters will understand.

But what are those terms? What kind of teaching would JavaScripters expect? Is there a CSS mental model that is different from a JavaScript mental model? Is CSS a programming language? Does that matter for teaching or learning CSS?

PPK will give a brief outline of where he’s standing right now on these questions. The majority of the session will be used for a discussion with the audience. How should he teach CSS? Why is it so hard for some to understand it? What are the least-understood parts of CSS? We hope this discussion will yield valuable feedback.

## “Keeping your NodeJS promise in production” by Dipro Chatterjee (https://twitter.com/chatterjeedipro)

As an asynchronous event-driven JavaScript runtime, Node is designed to build scalable network applications. It does not employ multi-threading and yet achieves a desired level of concurrency using its event loop architecture with I/O delegated to libuv. Under the hood, Libuv manages workers to handle asynchronous tasks. During this talk, we will dive into the event loop phases with live code samples e.g. file I/O, data pipelines.

Dipro will share some challenges with designing production systems and their solutions.

## Coding Challenge with Ricardo Mallols (https://twitter.com/ricardomallols)

Do you have some basic experience dealing with it? Are you a JavaScript ninja? Either way, this event is for you!

Ricardo has been organizing coding challenges to help people improve their JavaScript skills with the support and advice of the top JavaScript developers from London.

Ricardo and his team have created a coding game to help you improve your tech skills in a friendly, relaxed and motivational environment.

It doesn’t matter if you want to break into the tech market or just want to code for fun; don’t be shy and come over to enjoy the pleasure of modern programming!

Please remember to bring your laptop. 😉
