About the talks:

Large scale refactoring with code mods

Refactoring is part of the process of maintaining an application, but large scale refactoring that are more complicated than a find and replace are time consuming.

Codemods are a tool to refactor code by manipulating the abstract syntax tree (AST). In this talk I'll teach you what ASTs are, why we use ASTs in tools like Babel and eslint, and how to write a codemod that manipulates an AST.

JavaScript Async Iterators

An exploration of async iterators in Node.js including when and why to use them, how they compare to other reactive libraries, how they perform and what to look out for when you do use them.



Don't forget to get your ticket for HalfStack, our one-day UI-centric JS conf in a pub, back again this year on the 16th of November. . Tickets are running out quickly and we've announced most if not all of our speakers.
