HICAPACITY

Do you have a domain? More than one? If so, you’ll fit right in at DOTCOM, a new discussion and support group for domain hoarders collectors hosted by HICapacity at Box Jelly.

We’ll start with a short presentation about domains, and then circle up to do fast-paced introductions of domains we’ve had ideas for. Whether you hope to restart a project, find a good home for a domain, or just make us laugh, be ready to say a little bit about your own when it appears in the slides. We hope you’ll stay for the refreshments, too, and make a new connection or two.

Please RSVP here.

During registration, please submit up to 4 domains that you’d like to speak about. Additionally, feel free to send up to one image to rsvp@domainnight.com by April 12th for each domain/group of domains if that would help explain it.

James will be going over the fundamentals and guidelines on iOS development with the Apple Watch. The product is not yet released, and this is a very early introduction for what’s to come! Check out this OUDL event on development with the Apple Watch. Although programming experience is not required, we’ll be showing some Objective-C and Swift code.

Writing Asynchronous code in JavaScript can often times be confusing. JavaScript callbacks allow you to handle concurrency by offering to run a function at the end of another function with the return values of the previous function. But callbacks come with a few downsides. The code needs to be well thought out for it to be easy to read. Nested callback often lead to highly indented and hard to read code and pushes novice developers into spaghetti code. It’s the most controversial feature in JavaScript.

Promises to the rescue! Or is it? It’s a new feature in ES6, or the next version of JavaScript, and will be hitting evergreen browsers soon. Promises is a new tool that allows developers to replace callbacks with a thenable. What’s a thenable? Come to the talk and find out!

I’ll also cover how to use it now rather than wait till all the browsers adopt it.

How to keep the flow of control within one function while reaching out to many others.

How to convert code (and whole libraries) from callbacks to promises and back.

How to keep your code tidy with Promises.

Finally, advanced tips and tricks with Promises.
