The MMT Tech Meet-up in September 2020 was all about SvelteJS, and I’ve summarised below a quick recap of the event.
MMT Tech Meet-up
Firstly I would like to quickly talk about what the MMT Tech Meet-up is and what we focus on.
The MMT Tech Meet-up was originally an in-person meet-up organised and arranged by myself 👋. I saw an opportunity where the company I work for MMT Digital could host meet-ups in London (UK) and talk about topics that are front end specific.
I’ve arranged many MMT Tech Meet-ups in London, but since the pandemic, I have switched the focus on hosting these events online.
The first online meet-up was in August, which was all about GatsbyJS 🎥.
I am always looking out for future meet-ups speakers and if you’re interested, just drop me a message.
Recap of MMT Tech Meet-up featuring SvelteJS
September’s MMT Tech Meet-up we talked all about SvelteJS. There were some amazing talks covering different aspects of SvelteJS and how it could be used.
Getting started with SvelteJS
I also talked about how you can source data from a Headless CMS called Kentico Kontent.
Looking into the SvelteJS compiler
Second up, we had Tan Li Hau presenting in the early hours (2 am from Singapore👏) about how the SvelteJS compiler works and the different elements that are considered for the compiler to interpret items from the code.
This was an excellent presentation on why Tan Li Hau is one of the top SvelteJS maintainers and his knowledge of how it all works under the hood.
Sapper blog with must-have features
Markus went into some of the important aspects of building a blog and he also talked about the advantages and disadvantages.
He also showed how preloading items in the navigation that can help with speedy loading of pages and how fast SvelteJS can perform.
His talk talked about JAMstack and how it is useful for everyone. Using Trello was an example of how it could be used in that manner.
One of the many useful points from Shriji, he mentioned how we don’t need to use as much code for SvelteJS development and how it would be essential when building on smaller devices with low memory, data, and resources such as a RaspberryPI.
