JavaScript meetup videos from February, 2021

After last month’s JavaScript meetup video roundup, we’ve finally returned! Check out our selection of the best JavaScript meetup videos from February. These four presentations will keep you up to date for sure.

Introduction to webassembly | Guy Royse

Want to write a web application? Better get familiar with JavaScript. It has long been the king of front-end. While there have been various attempts to dethrone it, they have typically involved treating JavaScript as an assembly-language analog that you transpile your code to. This has led to complex build pipelines that produce JavaScript which the browser has to parse and *you* still have to debug. But what if there were an actual byte-code language you could compile your non-JavaScript code to instead? That is what WebAssembly is.

In this session we will explain how WebAssembly works and how to use it. We’ll cover what it is, how it fits into your application, and how to build and use your own WebAssembly modules. And, we’ll demo how to build and use those modules with both Rust and the WebAssembly Text Format. That’s right, we’ll be live coding in an assembly language. We’ll also go over some online resources for other languages and tools that make use of WebAssembly.

The past, present and future of CSS in JavaScript | Max Stoiber

Max Stoiber, creator of styled-components and react-boilerplate, talks about what is CSS-in-JS, why do people use it, how has it come as far as it has and where is it going.

Machine learning for JavaScript developers 101 | Jason Mayes

Discover how to achieve superpowers by embracing machine learning in JavaScript using TensorFlow.js in the browser.

Learn what machine learning is, get a high-level overview of how it works, get inspired through a whole bunch of creative prototypes (from invisibility to teleportation) that push the boundaries of what is possible in the modern web browser, and then take your own first steps with machine learning in minutes.

JavaScript counters the hard way – HTTP 203

You’ve seen loads of counter tutorials online, but they’re all a bit wrong… or at least most of them are. Jake and Surma dissect different techniques and identify how to make the counter work accurately and efficiently across browsers.
