PRUG August Sum Up

We’ve already calmed down after previous PRUG meeting and we think it’s time for a small sum up. Experienced speakers, interesting content and the mass of confirmed guests (thanks for coming, guys!) have filled us up with excitement. What’s more: we went live!

We’ve already calmed down after previous PRUG meeting and we think it’s time for a small sum up. Experienced speakers, interesting content and the mass of confirmed guests (thanks for coming, guys!) have filled us up with excitement. What’s more: we went live!

We started with a bang: Tomek told us about his approach to refactoring BackboneJS-based applications. His presentation was a great follow-up on his blog post about MarionetteJS ( here) - Tomasz has enumerated the weaknesses of the BackboneJS community and concluded that “the community needs an opinionated approach to backbone.js”.

Then there was time for our debutants. Marek, who told us why the bad code hurts, came up first and helped us to understand that some developers really don’t care about people who will try to change their code in the future. ‘Conventions’, ‘design patterns’ and ‘refactor’ became the most important words in his presentation. If you don’t agree with Marek, try to discuss the matter with him personally ;)

Between debutants speeches we found some time for Marcin’s philosophical presentation: Is developers’ ‘Sanity’ at risk? A little less if they “study the patterns, know them and apply them wisely”. A programmer’s job is sad but there are still many kittens and puppies to watch ;)

To complete ‘debuts night’ Bartek presented his awesome toolset. This kind of workshop was something new for PRUG regulars - the journey from OS shell, through window manager to his peripherals arrangement was spectacular. Have you already changed your working environment?

And finally a little surprise from one of our guests. Wojtek showed us how developers sometimes create security gaps themselves. By the way - everyone enjoyed the idea of interaction during his talk. We really like additional activity!
