Oban Lambie, owner of Brownrice Internet, will give you a "gloves-off" description of how he grew his one-man development shop into a nearly $1 million per-year hosting and data center operation. It wasn't easy, it wasn't fast, and its not over! Oban will cover everything from money, to hackers, to what's great (and what sucks) about hosting. In the end you'll know how Brownrice went from tiny to kinda-big while competing on a national level from the Internet backwaters of Taos, NM.
You know your way inside and out when it comes to DevTools in all the browsers. You understand the network waterfall and can hunt down memory leaks with the best of them. However, you're hitting some sporadic issues on mobile, but you can't reliably reproduce them. Perhaps you've got some minified code in production and you'd really like to just replace it for debugging with unbuilt code, but you don't want to actually put your unbuilt app into production.
Page refreshes are so 2013. Actually, single-page applications (SPAs) have been around for years, but we've entered an era of solid frameworks for building client-side applications. Join us as we explore Backbone.js, a library that provides models, collections and views, and Chaplin.js, a framework for Backbone.js.
