2 - Lightning talk
Sign up at the event for a 5 minutes talk to show what you're working on, learning or what ever you would like to share.

3- Automated Testing in JavaScript - by Michael Yagudaev
Automated Testing is an important tool of ensuring the quality and durability of software. Until recently however, writing tests in JavaScript has been so painful very few would go through the trouble. Thanks to modern tools like Jest and Cypress, this is no longer true. In this talk we will talk about how to write tests, the thinking behind tests and what level of test is appropriate.
