Best JavaScript meetup videos from June 2020

As expected, JavaScript didn’t fail to meet our high expectations in June either. With all the top quality videos from last month, it was quite a challenge to choose the best ones for you. Ranging from music recognition softwares to drones, you will surely be amazed. So, fasten your seatbelts, because our three meetups will be blow your mind!

David Neal: JavaScript – Past, Present and Future

“The Death Star superweapon is actually a very powerful JavaScript committer..” – it might not be the most important thought of the presentation, but it’s surely one to remember!

During NDC Porto 2020, David Neal put JS on a timeline. Firstly, he guided us through the brief history of JavaScript with lots of facepalms and eyerolls. And, honestly, he was right to do so – who didn’t get a heart attack from JS in the past? Heck, most of us still do, but, to be honest, it’s part of its charm.

Afterwards, David also presented some JS fails and tricks, making this presentation far more than a gag that you can relate to. So, grab a coffee, and check this one out, because it’s not only entertaining, but you’ll also master some new skills to make your own life easier.

Roy van Rijn: The Magic of Music Matching

Ever wondered how Shazam and all the music recognition apps work? Well, so did Roy van Rijn! That’s why he decided to look behind the code, and similarly to Prometheus, he brought us the fire.

So, Roy decided to dig deep and he created his very own music matching build. During GOTO Oslo 2020, he uncovered the algorithms, secrets and tricks he used. Get ready to learn lots of cool things about music and how such can be done by using JavaScript in less than 40 minutes!

Yaser Adel Mehraban: Let’s fly a drone with AI, and a bit of JavaScript

Have you thought that NDC Porto 2020’s only interesting JavaScript-related presentation was from David Neal? Guess what – you couldn’t have been more wrong…

Yaser Adel Mehraban casually decided to fly a drone with AI and some JavaScript. And that’s not even half of all the cool stuff from his presentation. Yaser doesn’t simply demonstrate the endless capabilities of machine learning, JavaScript and Tensorflow.js, he does all his magic from a browser. Yes, you heard that right!
