All Day FREE Code Camp in Boston! Come on out!

I’m very excited that the Boston Code Camp is back this year! They paused their events when the pandemic started, and they’re finally back.

On Saturday, April 29th, dozens of experts from in and around Boston unite to share their knowledge and learnings with a couple hundred engineers, developers, architects, technologists, and anyone else looking to learn! Make sure to sign up.

In addition to being back in person, I’m excited to share I’ll be presenting along with 5 other folks from our Slalom Boston office!

“Join us for an exploration of how to build intranet applications using Next.js and the MACH (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, Headless) architecture. In this talk, we’ll cover the key benefits of the MACH architecture, which emphasizes modularity, flexibility, and scalability, and discuss how it can be applied to building intranet applications. We’ll also talk through using Next.js for building intranet applications, including server-side rendering, static site generation, and incremental static site regeneration. Throughout the talk, we’ll explore real-world examples and best practices for working with Next.js and the MACH architecture, and share tips and insights for optimizing performance, security, and user experience. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or just getting started with Next.js and MACH, this talk will provide valuable insights and practical tips for building robust and scalable intranet applications.”

Make sure to say ‘Hi!’

If you come out, make sure to say “Hi!”. I’d love to meet you. (by the way, I’m 6′ 6″ with a big beard, I swear I’m a teddy bear) Slalom is sponsoring and will have a booth, if you don’t see me aimlessly wandering around, you can probably find me at the booth.
