    How we broke the Guardian website... and what we learned

    Moving fast shouldn’t mean breaking things, but Facebook’s old mantra often reflects the realities of a rapidly evolving codebase and infrastructure. The Guardian’s development culture is designed to allow us to move quickly, deploy a dozen times a day and get statistically-significant A/B test results within hours. Sometimes, though, that leads to the odd slip up.

    What I have learnt from teaching

    Mentoring junior developers isn’t just great for the community it can also sharpen our own skills as engineers. I will introduce how you can improve your technical skills, your communication skills and make great friends by coaching at or other ventures.

    Time for IntersectionObserver

    Lazy loading content, tracking impression, animation triggers - for many years we have utilised scroll handlers to detect when to trigger such actions. Now modern browsers are supporting IntersectionObserver, a new API that comes with better performance, and results in cleaner code.

About the event

We aim to provide a variety of interesting talks on peoples’ experiences in front-end development. Previously we’ve had talks on process, tooling, performance and technology, to name a few. Expect more of the same and lots more.

To kick off the evening there’s pizza (with veggie/vegan options) and refreshments (wine/beer/soft drinks/etc). All finished up with an obligatory trip to the local pub — if that’s your kind of thing.

See our code of conduct.
