  • 19:45: Gulpify your shell scripts - One way to manage reoccurring tasks on dynamically changing objects by Markus Spanier

    Most of us have used shell scripts to automate and simplify reoccurring tasks. Though being a very simple approach, shell scripts often become more and more cumbersome with growing size. The problem gets even more complicated if the tasks we want to solve with shell scripts depend on dynamically changing objects. And, by the way, have we talked about testing yet? Have we always written tests for our shell scripts? We give an approach to solve those problems by using node.js scripts instead of shell scripts. In order to solve the problems, we divide our scripts into several small tasks that work on independently managed objects and handle their execution with gulp.js. That way, we have all the tools to write clean code and tests at hand and can also benefit from the vast amount of node.js scripts available.

  • 20:30: High-speed ES2015 by Benedikt Meurer

    ECMAScript 2015 is fully supported by all major JavaScript implementations nowadays, and most of them already support various upcoming features like async/await. Especially Node.js developers can already use most of the ES2015 features without a transpiler like Babel. In this talk we’ll look at the performance of modern language features in V8, how the V8 team is currently improving the performance of ES2015 and later features, and how this will affect Node.js developers in 2017.
