⚠️ We're in our new venue at St Gregory the Great Catholic Secondary School ️ ⚠️
We'll be in the "conference room" that is through the main entrance of the old building and to the right. We'll be about to direct people.
There is plenty of parking available and a main bus route close by. Once you arrive enter through the entrance marked on the map below.
We will be providing drinks and snacks thanks to our wonderful sponsors but please be aware the venue doesn't allow alcohol so we'll be providing a range of tasty non-alcoholic beverages.
First time at JSOxford? Why not find someone to go with in the #meetup-buddies channel of the DigitalOxford Slack. Alternatively, feel free to get in touch with the organisers and we'd be happy to meet you outside and welcome you in.
Arrive, mingle, and meet new people
Welcome and thanks
Gordon Williams - Zero to Hardware in 30 Minutes
In a world where our consumer devices are developed by huge corporations with 9 figure budgets, creating your own hardware product to sell can seem completely out of reach.
Chat, mingle, have a drink, and soak in all you've learned so far.
Ben Foxall - An alternative to JSON & REST
We'll explore Protocol Buffers & gRPC as a way of serving content to your front-end code. We'll dive into some of the technical features and tooling, as well as chatting through some architectural differences to help you choose whether a service-based API approach would be a good fit with your current or future web projects.
If I find time to hack up some demos before this talk - then we'll check out those as well!
