Web Audio from zero to DAW🔗
This full-day workshop is for current or aspiring musicians, or people who are interested in synthesis in general. After the workshop, you will understand the fundamentals of synthesis, web audio basics, and some of the newest modern web Audio features. Expect to learn about the Web Audio API, Audio Worklets, Synthesis, Music Theory, Audio focused UI and visualization, and sequencing and composition.
Building Fast WebApps with QwikCity🔗
Building instant-on web applications at scale have been elusive. Real-world sites need tracking, analytics, and complex user interfaces and interactions. We always start with the best intentions but end up with a less-than-ideal site.
QwikCity is a new meta-framework that allows you to build large-scale applications with constant startup-up performance. We will look at how to build a QwikCity application and what makes it unique. The workshop will show you how to set up a QwikCity project. How routing works with layout. The demo application will fetch data and present it to the user in an editable form. And finally, how one can use authentication. All of the basic parts for any large-scale applications.
Along the way, we will also look at what makes Qwik unique, and how resumability enables constant startup performance no matter the application complexity.
TypeScript Essentials - From Novice to Expert🔗

Each section comes with hands-on exercises that will be completed during the workshop. By the end of the workshop, attendees will be competent to use and integrate TypeScript into any project!
Fast, efficient full-stack with Astro🔗
Serverless, server components, hot reloading, hydration… There’s countless buzzwords when building full-stack webapps. They all have a time and place, but the best framework lets you reach for new tools only when you need that complexity. That’s where Astro’s “zero JS by default” comes in.
In this workshop, we’ll use Astro to traverse those modern JS technologies by building a “swag” store. We’ll start with plain server-rendered HTML, add authentication middleware, use React for interactive “add to cart” flows, and apply adapters to deploy to your host of choice. By the end of the day, you’ll truly understand your stack to confidently ship new features.
The TypeScript Compiler API - Automation and Codegen for TypeScript🔗
This intermediate/advanced workshop will cover topics that will supercharge your TypeScript productivity!
Attendees will acquire the skills to eliminate the presence of boilerplate code within codebases by leveraging the Compiler API for automated code generation. This streamlines development but also mitigates the risk of bugs and inconsistencies, especially in large-scale projects. Additionally, attendees will delve into advanced topics such as automating processes and enhancing code type safety through the creation of custom linters and transformers.
- Basics of the TypeScript Compiler API
- Compiling modules with the API

- Writing a TypeScript linter from scratch
- Generating TypeScript code programatically
- Writing a TypeScript transformer from scratch
- Using the Type Checker API
- Unit Testing our scripts
