An introduction into Typescript Transformers

Ever wondered how to write a Typescript Transformer? No? What if I told you it's easier than it sounds?

Typescript Transformers are the equivalent of a Babel Plugin except for the Typescript ecosystem. They're pretty cool - and because of Typescripts powerful type checking you can actually do some pretty neat stuff with them. In this talk I'll be walking through what Typescript Transformers are, a brief introduction into Abstract Syntax Trees, and then we can write out first transformer together, live!

☞ Michael Dougall. Staff Software Engineer working at Atlassian - during the day working on Atlassian's Design System Atlaskit, and night tinkering with anything and everything that looks interesting - currently that's Typescript Transformers! I also love Ice Hockey... did you know Australia has its own pro league? Come talk to me and I'll tell you all about it

Visual Regression Testing with React

We're all familiar with Jest snapshots, which help us catch mistakes in the generated HTML of our React components. But what if we could look at screenshots instead?

This talk will look at two approaches to visual regression testing with React: - Storybook with Storycap - The new react-screenshot-test library (made by yours truly)

☞ François Wouts. I'm a Developer Happiness Engineer at Airtasker. I'm passionate about making software engineering better.

Firetable: No more custom admin portals

Firetable is an open-source project allowing for spreadsheet like experience for Google Firestore

Most businesses need an operational interface to perform various CRUDs on their database. Firestore is a great data platform that gets developers quickly up and running. However, the Firestore console editing capabilities are limited and too technical for business users. This creates a need to build custom solutions (CRM/CMS) for maintaining data and this is need is repeated across businesses. This talk presents a new open-source solution to tackle this problem with a user-friendly, reusable spreadsheet like component on top of your existing Firestore database.

☞ Shams Mosowi. Shams is a Lead Software Engineer at Antler, building a global data platform for creating and growing startups at scale. He is passionate about developing scalable react apps and contributing to the open-source projects.
