Event description

Description

Hey everyone,

the end of the year is almost upon us and to celebrate, we have an amazing set of speakers lined up for our December meetup.

1. Alex Lakatos - Nexmos/Mozilla Tech Speaker https://twitter.com/lakatos88
2. Abiel Tomas Parra Hernandez - University of Sheffield/Mozilla Tech Speaker https://www.twitter.com/QuarryCero

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES CHRIS HEILMANN IS NO LONGER SPEAKING AT THIS EVENT. WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE HIM TO SPEAK AT SOME STAGE IN THE NEW YEAR.

DevTools for Gain and Glory, Alex Lakatos
Description: No, Firefox DevTools are not Firebug. The web came a long way since Firebug, and so have the DevTools baked into Firefox. So let's go exploring! As the complexity of the web apps you build keeps moving, so do the Firefox DevTools. In this session, Alex will give you the latest tips and tricks on Firefox DevTools. We'll explore new and less commonly known features in performance profiling, JavaScript debugging and animation inspection. The session will give you a productivity advantage when developing and debugging your web applications.
Bio: Alex Lakatos is a JavaScript Developer Advocate for Nexmo. In his spare time, he is a Mozilla Tech Speaker and has been a contributor to the Mozilla project for the past six years, based in London. JavaScript developer building on the open web, he has been pushing its boundaries every day. You can check out his Github profile or get in touch on Twitter. When he’s not programming, he likes to travel the world, so it’s likely you’ll bump into him in an airport lounge.

Untangling the Tale of Firefox Quantum, Abiel Tomas Parra Hernandez
Description: The word quantum comes from the Latin quantus meaning, "how great". Although there is no better word to describe the new Firefox... why do we need a "quantum" browser? Well, basically because the World Wide Web has evolved from a small number of text pages with hyperlinks to a complex information system of many layers, technologies and information. In this session, Abiel will present the history behind Firefox Quantum and all the computational technologies that produce "all the magic" with the new Mozilla browser. We will discover all the amazing opportunities that can be tackled with Firefox Quantum and all the challenges for years to come. The audience will gain important technical information to design and develop for, according to Tim Berners-Lee, the "Web of people".
Bio: Abiel Tomas Parra Hernandez is a doctoral student in Computer Science at the University of Sheffield and a Mexican Mozillian Tech Speaker that loves to talk about the Web, Human-Computer Interaction, Complexity Science and life experiences on the road... You find him on twitter as @QuarryCero
