Mani provides a document based search tool in the browser. It merges together free text search, Mongodb type queries, geo search and facets from other projects into one library. It was built to explore what off-line search could look like in the world of service-worker enhanced sites. I will share what I learned while building this library and demo it.

A lightning (precursor?) talk on static site generation in Node using Metalsmith & Gulp (Gulpsmith). Will very briefly glance over the full end-to-end stack involving Codeship CI (alternatives available) deploying to AWS & Cloudflare. With a few tweaks, this stack can make the fastest blog in the world. No slides, just an IDE and some browser tabs.

There's a [insert your noun].js for that.

I was asked by a friend to create a speech recognition program for checking the recited Pi number. I want to share a story how I ended up finding the most elegant solution right under my nose - in the browser.

Related link to the (mostly finished) project.

Prem Rose, @premasagar

On creating a stable API from a smörgåsbord of disparate websites, in search of data on voting in Parliament. The sites are scraped with Noodle, glued together and served as a HAL JSON API with Hapi and Halacious. Queries pass through a waterfall of asynchronous functions, using ES2016 async/await and other techniques.
