Should we have business logic in the UI? (from OLX team, remote)

How many times did you say or hear “this is business logic, it should not be here”?

In this workshop, we will create a modern frontend application using old patterns and you will learn how to build apps that have decoupled UI and services.

  • - Make components dumb
  • - Isolate responsibilities

Learn more about the Hyperverse here.

We will go over all the blockchain/crypto basics you need to know to start building on the Hyperverse, so you do not need to have any previous knowledge about the Web3 space. You just need to have JavaScript experience.

Going on an adventure with Nuxt 3, Motion UI and Azure (from Capgemini team, remote)

We love easily created and deployed web applications! So, let’s see what a very current tech stack like Nuxt 3, Motion UI and Azure Static Web Apps can do for us. It could very well be a golden trio in modern day web development. Or it could be a fire pit of bugs and errors. Either way it will be a learning adventure for us all. Nuxt 3 has been released just a few months ago, and we cannot wait any longer to explore its new features like its acceptance of Vue 3 and the Nitro Engine. We add a bit of pizzazz to our application with the Sass library Motion UI, because static design is out, and animations are in again.

Our driving power of the stack will be Azure. Azure static web apps are new, close to production and a nifty and quick way for developers to deploy their websites. So of course, we must try this out.

With some sprinkled Azure Functions on top, we will explore what web development in 2022 can do.

Table of contents
  • - Introduction
  • - Azure Static Web Apps
  • - Nuxt 3
  • - Motion UI
  • - Azure functions
  • - Bringing it together, conclusion & end

Basic frontend knowledge (Vue or Nuxt & Sass), a free Azure account set up beforehand.
