Title: Up And Running with React Native - Cody Lewis

Title: On the Commutability of Subtraction -Mike Harris

Desc: Believe it or not but with the right set of data you can "prove" anything. To demonstrate this I will "prove" that contrary to popular belief subtraction does in fact commute! This talk will show property testing using JSVerify and will show theorem proving using Coq.

Title: JS in an IoT Ecosystem -Kurt Brandt

Topic: Hello, Newman: Testing your API using Postman -Rob DeRosia

Desc: Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow... should prevent you from testing your API. In this talk, I'll share my experience writing JavaScript code to build dynamic test suites in Postman. We'll also say "hello" to Newman - a CLI tool built on Node.js - which allows us to integrate our tests with our CI server.

Title: JS in the Real World: Implementing Wake-on-LAN with Node.js - Hunter Parks

Desc: The more I learn about computer and software engineering, the fewer day-to-day tasks I do in my life. In this talk, I will be sharing my experience of using Node.js to implement Wake-on-LAN functionality into a greater home-theater automation system.
