Talk #1

Writing Docs in a Standard, Not a CMS

Description:
Documentation sites need to deliver complex content to their readers, but most content management systems are inflexible vendor-based tools that focus on blogs & don't support existing standards like DocBook XML or AsciiDoc markdown. What happens when you need to embed a list in a table, but your CMS doesn't even support tables? This talk explores how the AsciiDoctor plugins for Hugo & Gatsby enables writers to author finely-tuned documentation in a flexible, portable, future-proof standard.

Presenter: Aaron Verber

Talk #2

Tadas Antanavicius, Software Engineer, Commure

Title: Moving Fast Without Breaking Things: TypeScript, GraphQL, & the JAMStack

Description: The world is begging for more JAMStack applications. There is no limit on the amount of software that can make peoples' daily lives at least a little bit better. With the JAMStack, we stand on the shoulders of giants handling all of our cross-cutting concerns - leaving us to solve the niche pain points that were previously unprofitable & uneconomical to address.

With that ability comes both opportunity & responsibility. In this talk, we'll cover how leveraging modern tooling in the form of TypeScript & GraphQL (Apollo, Hasura/Graphcool/Prisma) can make iterating on your complex JAMStack apps not only fast but also surprisingly reliable & bug-free.

Bio: Tadas Antanavicius is a software engineer & entrepreneur with experience ranging from the 10,000 engineer org of Goldman Sachs to being a one-man shop building an app to serve weight loss surgery patients. Today, he is working as an engineer at Commure to help enable the next wave of healthcare software innovation. When not coding, Tadas loves meeting inspiring entrepreneurs & geeking out on topics like marketing, product design, & business development.
