Passionate about web development? Join us for an evening of talks and networking at the Destination:Web meetup in San Francisco! See below for tech talk details:

GraphQL+React

Over the last year twitter.com has begun migrating from REST to GraphQL. This talk will demystify what it’s like to work with React + GraphQL day-to-day, tell the story of why Twitter is investing in this technology, and outline how we are approaching the migration of a large web app.

Web-based Visualization in 2018: A review

2018 has been a great year for Web-based Visualization. From the announcement of tools like Observable and Kepler.gl, the exploration of languages like Elm as DSL for complex visualizations and developments of libraries and tools like Tensorflow.js, the Web is becoming the de-facto standard for visualization and data analysis in a variety of new domains and practices. In the following talk I will give an overview of the notable work in visualization and data analysis that is fully based on Web techniques and applied to explanatory and exploratory visualizations in domains like self-driving car, urban computing, machine learning and public-facing data visualization.

Discovering WebAudio by Recreating Deep Note

Deep Note is THX's highly-recognizable audio logo played before a movie starts. It was created by Dr. James A. Moorer, a computer and audio engineer at Lucasfilm, on top of his own Audio Signal Processor. Question is: can we recreate it in JavaScript? In the past year or so a number of details about what went into Deep Note were uncovered. And many of these fascinating little details ("just" tuning, pitching a sample to create 30 voices, etc) are a perfect way to explore what the current WebAudio API has to offer.
