Ask the Hybrid brains

We're back! After 2 years without human contact you will finally have the opportunity to come face-to-face with like-minded developers and enthusiasts! Can't make it in-person? Don't worry, you'll also be able to join us online.

We are very happy to announce that on the evening of Wednesday 8th June, we will be hosting an in-person hybrid version of our popular "Ask the Brains" event for the first time. This means that you will have the ability to join us in-person at PLATF9RM in Brighton, or to join us online!

Inspired by the monthly Brighton ALT.NET meetup, we will be asking/talking/rambling about everything web-related - 5-10 minutes per topic.

The aim is to create a friendly environment for everyone to ask their "that thing you've never understood but always been too afraid to ask" type questions, plus any other topics you feel like talking about on the night. Topics such as:

  • I'm new to development. Where do I get started?
  • I still don't get it! What the hell does this mean in Javascript?
  • null or undefined, or is there a case for both
  • Do we have to accept that JavaScript is now a compiled language
  • How do you maintain a work-life balance
  • Should I write unit tests, integration tests, or both?
  • What are the beneficial aspects of Agile/Scrum, and what do you find less useful.

You will be able to submit topics, and event attendees will be able to vote for the topics they would like to discuss. We will run the discussion for about an hour, and afterwards, anyone who wishes can join us nearby for a chat/drink (sorry we can't take you online folks with us).

The format works best when there is a diverse group of people and opinions in the room, so whether you consider yourself an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro, do come and join.

So, please put your thinking caps on now and start thinking of some questions you would like to ask.

We're all looking forward to seeing you!
