TypeScript For Smashing People

TypeScript has been one of the most hyped technologies in 2019. Annoyingly hyped for some. Now in 2020, let’s look beyond the hype. Let’s find out what type-checking has in store for us people of the web.

First and foremost, TypeScript is tooling for people who write JavaScript. Its goal: helping developers getting more information about their and other people’s code. When working for the web, we inevitably have to deal with JavaScript. So why not use excellent tooling to make some challenges a lot easier?

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What TypeScript actually is.
  • About the strong relationship between TypeScript and JavaScript.
  • How to use TypeScript without fully committing to it.
  • The strategy of applying homeopathic TypeScript.
  • TypeScript’s impact on using JSX based frameworks like React.

Video Killed My Data Plan: Performant Video Delivery On The Web

To ensure you get the most benefit from videos on your site, you’d want to know how well they perform.

  • How quickly do the videos start?
  • Do they stall?
  • Do your customers even see the videos playing?

In this webinar, Doug will walk you through several possible scenarios to optimize video files for fast and efficient playback on the web. Together we'll test the video quality to ensure that it meets the required standard, and then look at tooling to measure video playback — to confirm that the video will start quickly and not stall for the majority of your users.
