  • Workshop: Getting Beyond "app.get()": ExpressJS Middleware Explained and Explored

    by 〽️artypd⚔

    ExpressJS makes it incredibly easy to get started setting up an http server.
    But as your app grows in size and complexity an `app.js` full of routing calls
    can become unwieldy and hard to manage.

    This workshop will walk you through how ExpressJS middleware actually works and
    show you how to:

    • Use the `express.Router` object to modularize routes by resource type (REST noun)
    • Correctly order app routes and multi-function routes by knowing how middleware "flows"
    • Use the `next()` function to selectively apply common app logic like authentication and authorization
    • Understand what third-party middlewares like `body-parser` are actually doing
    • Introduce custom properties on the request object
    • Use parameter based middleware
    • Setup common error handling

    At 9:00am to 12:00pm, Sunday 19th June

    In Main Room, Code Fellows

  • Workshop: Taming Asynchronous JavaScript with ES2015 Promises and Fat Arrows

    by 〽️artypd⚔

    Looking to get caught up on the best ES2015 features that you use natively in Node.js version 5 and later? This workshop will
    walk you through how Promises and Fat Arrows allow you to write cleaner, easier-to-read code and leave callback hell far behind.

    You'll learn how to:

    • Relate promises to callbacks and understand the problems promises solve
    • Wrap traditional callback api's as Promises
    • Chain promises and know how return values effect chaining
    • Use fat arrows to make your promise handlers clear and concise
    • Use `Promise.all` to parallelize asynchronous calls
    • Properly handle exceptions in promise chains
    • Manage closure data across Promises
    • Consider when and why to use a third-party promise implementation like bluebird over native promises

    At 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Sunday 19th June

    In Main Room, Code Fellows
