Slack TinySpec 2019

What is Spec?

Spec is a Slack’s Developer Conference

At TinySpec 2019 there was discussion around the latest developments on the Slack Platform, updates from the Slack team on the news since annual developer conference, Spec.

Apps are a fundamental part of bringing workflows into Slack, improving the way teams work together. But the Slack isn’t just a set of APIs to connect workflows and teams – it’s a global community with the resources, support, and tools you need to be successful.

Mr. Gregg ( Partner Engineer at Slack) explained about what is #tinyspec2019 and about Slack Apps

Mr. Aman Gupta ( Partner Engineering at Slack) talked about various features of slack which are very helpful for developers to build slack apps. He explained and showed videos of block kit, modals, advanced surveys, home tab, integration of google calendar with slack and actions from messages.

Mr. Vishwesh (Engineering Site Lead @ Slack) described in brief about latest development which Slack team is working on and about new slack features

Ms. Emily Pinkerton (Content Senior Strategist at Slack) explained about slack app toolkit. She talked about Slack’s growth over the years in terms of users, slack apps, etc.

Overall I had a fantastic time at #tinyspec2019 meetup ! It was an awesome event where Slack team shared a lot of insights on what’s latest in Slack. I loved the live demo of Salesforce integration with Slack.

Speaker at HTML/CSS Event

I was invited as a speaker at VIIT Engineering College for a session on “Learn HTML/CSS by creating a portfolio”

I started the session by giving an introduction about HTML and CSS. In the introductory part I explained about what is HTML & CSS, HTML & CSS syntax, HTML Tags, correct HTML syntax, examples of HTML & CSS code, different ways in which CSS can be added for a website, CSS selectors, etc.

After the introductory part I explained about importance of having a portfolio and various uses of having a portfolio.
Then we started with hands-on session (coding) of how to create a portfolio.
During the hands-on session I explained about various HTML/CSS tags and concepts while coding and creating a portfolio.

Once our portfolio was created I gave a demo.
In the demo I explained step by step in detailed about :
1. How to install git
2. Uploading their portfolio code on GitHub
3. Using Netlify free hosting for their portfolio
4. Netlify continuous integration and continuous deployment feature

At the end we had a Q&A round where I cleared all the doubts of attendees.
Overall it was an awesome event. After the event many attendees created their GitHub account, used Netlify for hosting and created their own HTML/CSS portfolio.

Importance of conferences and meet-ups for developers

I am fortunate enough to attend and speak at many meet-ups and events. I do try to attend local meet-ups in my city.
This got me thinking – why do developers attend or speak at meet-ups and conferences and how beneficial are they to developers and their careers ? This brought up 2 main topics that could answer these questions: Learning and Networking.

Learning

Many developers go to meetups and conferences to learn something new, about either a specific topic or just something new that they might not have heard about. With many resources out there such as blogs and online courses, we have many platforms to learn from, so what do meet-ups and conferences give us that’s different?

Well first, we get to learn from the best. Most of the time, speakers and attendees are people that have been working with a specific technology for a while and have experienced the good and bad.
You also find people sharing different ways of using a specific technology that maybe the speaker didn’t mention. In person communication is something awesome and helps any developer grow.

The transfer of knowledge during these events can help with the growth of a developer and even their organization.

Networking

Meetups and conferences are the places where we share ideas, learn from each other and help each other grow. I found that I have learnt the most from awesome people.

Networking is all about how we collaborate with other people, by speaking about open source projects you might be working on or talking about the amazing culture you have at your company. This opens up so many opportunities for developers to explore.

For me personally, I think that having these type of communities in the software engineering space is amazing. They help many people become part of this learning, sharing, networking and collaborating environment that so many other industries don’t have.
These events are also fun because you get to speak to so many amazing people.
I would say, if you get an opportunity to join a developer community do grab this opportunity. You will get to meet some awesome people along the way.
