  1. Doors open

    Come and hang out while we struggle with our A/V setup.

  2. Opening remarks

    Short introduction to the Porto Codes project.

  3. A serverless case study with AWS, by Luís Miguel

    A full-fledged CMS can easily keep records of tasks input by users, process those tasks into a queue, communicate them to a job factory, and notify users of the results. We decided we didn’t want to manage a full CMS just for that, going serverless was the perfect alternative.

  4. How Ember.js revamped their infrastructure, by Ricardo Mendes

    The Ember project has many associated websites, the guides, the deprecation guides, the blog, the API documentation, and the main website itself. These were built over the years as needed and used a mishmash of technologies (middleman, embedded Ember, standalone Ember), which made it hard for both maintainers and new contributors to the project. To take advantage of the Ember knowledge and skills in the community, we started moving projects to Ember. In this presentation I will be covering how we are using JAMstack practices to accomplish this migration.

  5. Dinner and ice cream

    Join us for dinner, usually at Estambul Doner Kebap. Come rain or shine, we go for ice cream at Santini.
