Speaking at FEConf 2017 - All about VS Code and JavaScript

This year I had the pleasure and privilege to be invited to speak at FEConf2017, a free, web-based conference devoted to Front End development and all things JavaScript. I took this opportunity to speak about one of the tools I love so much and one that I use daily for most of my coding - Visual Studio Code. My talk focused on how VS Code is a great (if not the best) text editor/IDE for working with JavaScript or TypeScript and I tried to showcase the excellent work that the core VS Code team and the community has done, …[read more]


FullStack 2015 - Retrospect and impressions

I'm currently sitting on my plane flying back from London where I spent an excellent couple of days attending the FullStack conference. FullStack is, oddly enough, a primarily front-end focused conference! Most of the talks had an element of JavaScript + a framework and/or a tool. It was all about writing cool front-end code(z). I'm sure my friend @rankida (David Rankin) would have loved it :) I was there to talk about TypeScript and how we can use it to improve JavaScript by leveraging ES6 and ES7 features. I flew in on Monday and arrived at the venue shortly after …[read more]


CodeMotion Tel Aviv 2016 - Retrospect

I'm sitting at the TelAviv airport waiting to board my flight. My ridiculously long flight that will see me going through the following airports: TLV-> CDG->LHR->GLA. All in all, it will take me over 14 hours for what should have been only 6 hours. Was it worth it? It was and then some more. This year I was fortunate to get an invite to speak at CodeMotion Tel Aviv. I missed my chance to make it at the Italian CodeMotion but I didn't care that much. I don't have any friends in Italy. On the other hand, I …[read more]


CodeCraftCon Glasgow - a tech conference with a twist

A couple of weeks ago I had the fortune to speak at CodeCraftCon in Glasgow, UK. How very fortunate as the venue was only 15 mins away from where I live! But this was not the only reason why the event was such a success. The conference was great, the location fantastic, the food extremely tasty and the overall outcome exceeded people's expectations. I greatly applaud and support events like this which can benefit the local developer community. CodeCraftCon was the first event I attended that the format was wildly different to what most of us are used to when …[read more]


Visual Studio 2015 tips and tricks - Visug talk, Belgium

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at Visug, the .NET User Group in Belgium. Attendance was good (about 35-40 people) though it could have been better should the road access hadn't been impacted by massive traffic delays. Nonetheless, the show must go on and we did the talk as planned. For those that missed the talk, I've recorded the whole (I think I did since the camera battery died at some point) session and I will be posting a link to it shortly. A lot of people asked me whether they could get access to the …[read more]
