Twin Cities Code Camp 19 – Recap

Hey all,

This past weekend I made the 5 hour drive up to Minneapolis, MN for the 19th edition of Twin Cities Code camp.  I had the opportunity to speak there with a long time friend.  We demonstrated how to build an app using the Phoenix web framework and then adding Angular on top of it. We did a screencast style recording of the presentation which is linked below.

I also went to a couple sessions while I was there, one on developing apps for the Apple TV and another on managing technical debt.

The Apple TV session was interesting as it was the first time I had heard about TVMLKit from Apple.  The TL;DR is you can now write Apple TV apps using remotely hosted JavaScript.

The session on managing technical debt was interesting in that I heard a large amount of horror stories that made me really appreciate working at Getty along with specifically all the things we have done in the Madison office to continue to work on paying our technical debt off.

Then I got to enjoy this tasty beverage at the speaker dinner: https://instagram.com/p/9PWAgokOem69BkMZRvI-RhY_FSzZznosMaF6A0/
