Trust & Teams

Trust is at the core of whether we are happy at work or not. Trust is at the core of whether we like who we work with. Trust is at the core of whether people perceive us to be good at our jobs. But what is trust? How do you know when it’s missing? And how do you fix it when it’s gone. Let’s discuss the elements of trust and the patterns of behavior the make or break trust

All About the Client & Server @ FrontEnd Camp @ Columbia College Chicago Film Row
Jul 3 all-day

New JavaScript frameworks and libraries popping up everywhere. Code that was once only on the server is now performing beautifully on the client. Data that once only lived in one part of your application is needed everywhere.

But the truth is that the internet — its fundamental protocols and constraints — hasn’t changed much in the last couple decades. We’ve just gotten better at working within those constraints. Maybe we’ve gotten too good.

Let’s discuss the fundamentals of interacting with the client and the server. We’ll discuss the basic ways to connect JavaScript with a web application using examples in Ruby on Rails and other web frameworks. You’ll leave the talk able to assess the best approach for your app’s needs, communicate with your backend team and a deeper understanding of how the libraries and frameworks you use work under the hood.
