Fastify Node.js Videos

Talk: Make the most of modern JavaScript with Fastify (2021-02-25)

< 1 min read

Over the past five years, the JavaScript language has evolved at a rapid pace. To make the most of these changes you need a Node.js framework which allows you to safely use features like Promises and async/await. You want a framework that is fast and flexible, but with some batteries included, like validation and logging. You want to be able to focus on building the good stuff.

Join me for a whistle-stop tour of the Fastify framework. We’ll look at what makes this framework so developer-friendly, and how it can help you take advantage of the modern JavaScript features you love. I’ll also show you how Fastify allows you to gradually migrate away from your current Node.js framework, without the need to throw everything away and start from scratch.

This is a recording of a talk I gave at the JS Monthly London meetup on 25th February 2021. The slides for this talk are up on GitHub.

Everyone attending the meetup was invited to try out the virtual conference venue which has been created for CityJS Conf 2021. This online space has been created in Gather Town. It was a unique experience, and certainly a lot more entertaining and interactive than a one-way video stream!

Thank you to Aris Markogiannakis and Dimitra Moraiti for organising an excellent evening.
