Peers Conference returns for its 7th year in the Big Easy! Join us for three days of code and community - development, software, business and life. We'll kick off with a day of workshops, followed by two days of presentations, breakout sessions and plenty of time for sharing with your peers. You'll be part of a community of folks who do what you do - web and software developers, agency owners and freelancers.

Workshop Descriptions:

AM – Fundamentals of Vue.js Apps with Ben Hong
When it comes to learning about a new framework, there's no better way than building things from scratch! Join me in this hands on workshop where we will start from a bare-bones HTML5 template so you can see how everything works from the ground up. By the end of the workshop, you will be equipped with the fundamental knowledge of how Vue.js applications work so you can use it in your own projects!

Prerequisites: 

  • Your own laptop
  • Your favorite text editor / IDE (Recommends VS Code if you don't have one yet)
  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Nice to have:
    • Git
    • Node.js

PM - Measuring Web Performance with Sara Karamalegos
Are you losing revenue to performance? 53% of mobile site visits are abandoned if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Pinterest reduced load times by 40% and saw a 15% increase in sign ups. Starbucks implemented a 2x faster time to interactive resulting in a 65% increase in rewards registrations. AliExpress reduced load by 36% and saw a 10.5% increase in orders.

Performance is important. Tooling can be hard. Do flame charts intimidate you? Come learn how to audit and fix common performance issues using Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, PageSpeed Insights, and webpagetest.org.
