Emily Freeman

Emily Freeman

After many years of ghostwriting, Emily Freeman made the bold (insane?!) choice to switch careers into software engineering. Emily is the curator of JavaScript January — a collection of JavaScript articles which attracts 32,000 visitors in the month of January. A former competitive powerlifter, she works as a developer advocate for Kickbox and lives in Denver, Colorado.

The Intelligence of Instinct

Fear isn’t a gut feeling. It’s your brain delivering critical information derived from countless cues that have added up to one conclusion. This talk will explore fear, instinct and denial. And we’ll look at how we can start to view “feelings” as pre-incident indicators.

Steve Kinney

Steve Kinney

Steve Kinney is a principal engineer at SendGrid where he works on creating a rich WYSIWYG editor for building HTML emails using modern web technologies. Previously, he was the director of the front-end engineering program at the Turing School of Software and Design in Denver, Colorado where he taught JavaScript and other technologies to aspiring developers from across the country. He is a recovering New York City public school teacher and recently learned how to drive a car.

Actually Understanding Asynchronous JavaScript

Reasoning about asynchronous JavaScript doesn’t have to be maddening once you understand what’s going on under the hood. In this talk, we’ll take a good, hard look at how the browser and Node.js implement asynchrony and how to reason about it and build on top of it with confidence and moxie.
