August BucharestJS Meetup

BucharestJS is back from holiday with 2 special talks. RSVP here to save your front row spot on August 28, starting at 18:30!

 

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Meet & Greet
  • 19:00 – 19:45 Using Statecharts for Community Collaboration by Andrei Tudor

Statecharts were first described by David Harel in 1987 as an extension of finite state machines and state diagrams, but have recently gained traction in the web UI development community. With UI statecharts, the representation of the features, behavior, and possible effects of different UI interactions is decoupled from the code that actually implements the behavior. This can lead to a number of potential benefits, such as validating that software properly implements community requirements, opening up aspects of development to contributors who may not be experts in particular web UI frameworks, and automatically generating more robust, testable and bug-free code. In this presentation, we will examine the principles of UI statecharts and consider their application to software development.

  • 19:45 – 20:00 Modex BCDB for Developers by Dan Popescu – Tech Lead at Modex

Dan will talk about how Modex-BCDB works and present the API and a sandbox for developers to play with. He’s going to announce the beta phase for B2C and ready for download (any developer can create a Modex BCDB network fast and easy) and finally he’s going to announce the next event at the end of September with the “Live Coding Session- Build a front-end app using Vue.js blockchain backend based”.

Mental Models – Why we test the way we test

Join Tabara de Testare for a discussion the Mental Models we use when we perform testing. RSVP here to save your front row spot on August 22, starting at 18:30!

 

About the event

A few words from the speaker about this month’s topic:

“Why do we test in the way we test. How can we figure out where the areas with most bugs are most likely to appear? Part of it is related to patterns, part to experience and part to our knowledge, but all is related to how we manage and construct our mental models.

A mental model is our representation of how we think something works. They may be right or they may be faulty but they do affect our daily work and life, we make decisions based on them and we judge based on them. They are our best friend and our worst enemy. Join me in a presentation to see how we build our mental models, how we use them and finally how can we improve on them.”

 

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Registration
  • 19:00 – 20:00 Mental Models – Why we test the way we test and how do you know a bug is just around the corner
