Bun, Deno, Node.js? Recreating a JavaScript Runtime From Scratch
Bun, Deno, and many other JavaScript runtimes have been hype, but do you know why? Is it that easy to make a runtime from scratch?
I've been researching the secret behind Node.js' power and why there are so many new JavaScript runtimes coming up. Breaking down each key component used on Node.js I've come to interesting conclusions that many people used to say whereas in practice it works a bit differently.
In this talk, attendees will learn the concepts used to create a new JavaScript runtime. They're going to go through an example of how to make a JavaScript runtime by following what's behind the scenes on the Node.js project using C++. They'll learn the relationship between Chrome's V8 and Libuv and what makes one JavaScript runtime better than others.

How I've been Using JavaScript to Automate my House
Software Programming is naturally fun but making something physical, to interact with the world that you live in, is like magic. Is even funnier when you can reuse your knowledge and JavaScript to do it. This talk will present real use cases of automating a house using JavaScript, Instead of using C++ as usual, and Espruino as dev tools and Microcontrollers such as Arduino, ESP8266, RaspberryPI, and NodeRed to control lights, doors, lockers, and much more.
