Uber, 555 Market St, 2nd Floor, San Francisco Map

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

Soft sure, Strong maybe, hard pass

A look at technical interviewing over the last decade. Strange questions, biases, conversations and asks. Wait do you even write javascript? Does that matter? How do I tell? How did you get into this room? How did I? Write an algorithm that gets us out of blah blah blah...

Progressive enhancement: not just for websites

In an age of evergreen browsers, progressive enhancement as a design principle has seemingly lost its luster. However, with the ascendancy of build tooling in web development, it has never been more relevant.

JavaScript Errors Demystified

Collecting JavaScript errors from the browser: it's harder than you think. Join us down the rabbit hole of normalizing stack traces, managing CORS, and unwrangling uncaught promise errors.
