Another great month of talks. I think this month, you're going to get a lot of great information from our speakers.

Title: Creating a simple "flow-based programming" feature

Speaker: Nate Weiss
About Nate: Nate Weiss is the CTO & tech lead at Conductrics, an ML-powered experimentation system for the web, mobile, & other systems. He's been scripting for a long time at this point.
Abstract: Let's say you need to give your users a way to "design" their own process flows, where they can arrange bits of pre-built functionality into an arbitrary sequence of steps with branching & conditional logic & so on. One way to tackle such a problem is to use a visual "flow based programming" metaphor. I'll walk through how we do this at Conductrics.

Title: Using React to build WordPress content Blocks (Gutenberg).

Speaker: Michael Posso
About Michael: Michael is a front-end engineer specialized in developing global, accessible & performant websites sites for large corporations using open source content management systems. As an early adopter of Virtual Reality, Michael began experimenting with WebVR in early 2016 creating accessible immersive experiences for the open web. His commitment to education & the community drove him to create the Latino Web Developers Meetup & teach web development at City University of New York.
Abstract: WordPress is the most popular CMS on the web, powering almost 30% of all websites. For the past two years, WP has been going through a phase of modernization. One of the most notable is the react based front-end editor labeled "Gutenberg". Gutenberg is now part of WP 5.0 & it enables javascript developers to create advanced content plugs using modern front-end development tools. This talk will give you an introduction to how Gutenberg works, & how you can start creating Gutenberg blocks for your WP website using React.
