2nd Devz Meetup Varaždin

TBH, I wasn’t aware that something like this (meetups) exists “near” me (yeah, I hear you: Where do you live, man?!”.), so I didn’t make it to the 1st one. All in all, kudos for the organizers and looking forward to the next one! As I usually do with posts about conferences, I’ll share my notes that I took in my notebook and a few pictures.

There were 3 talks and a Voogle 2016 conference announcement on this meetup:

  • Information security and why should you care
  • Introduction to VueJS
  • Startup accelerator experiences


Information security and why should you care

  • presenter: doc.dr.sc.  Tonimir Kišasondi
  • this was a very intriguing talk, that delivered on the authors expectations – it made me start thinking more about security! So, thank you!
  • thumb_IMG_5997_1024
  • problem is related to security ecosystem
  • after a company survives an attack it looses about 40% clients
  • exploit kit
  • it seems that we aren’t only good at sports ;). “Share of internet users who experienced security related problems in the EU Member States in 2015” – we hold position #1
  • ISO 27000 (commercial), BSI (free)
  • OWASP ASVSP – must read!
  • SANS critical security checklist
  • Bitstamp incident
  • DREAD assesment risk model


Introduction to VueJS

  • presenter: Bruno Škvorc
  • speaker shared his views of why he thinks VueJS has the potential to become the best front end JS framework
  • thumb_IMG_6003_1024
  • Well, I guess that every new-shiny-JavaScript-framework talk has to show this slide 🙂
  • it’s very easy to use and master (1-2 days)
  • you can have an app on literally one element
  • only focused on web
  • everything is a component and has it’s own JS, HTML and CSS
  • the simplest example (jsFiddle here):
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    	<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/vue/1.0.16/vue.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
    	<div id="demo">
    	  <input v-model="message">
    	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    		var demo = new Vue({
    		  el: '#demo',
    		  data: {
    		    message: 'Hello Vue.js!'
  • vue-router and vue-resource are must from the start


Startup accelerator experiences

  • presenter: Zvonimir Dimovski
  • speaker shared his experience with startup accelerator Eleven Accelerator
  • you have to deal with C.R.A.P:
    • C – critisism
    • R – rejection
    • A – assholes
    • P – pressure
  • if you get founded you get 100k € for 6 months, with investor owning 8%


Voogle conference announcement

  • March 15th 2016
  • An interesting lineup of speakers and talks
  • Register here, tickets are not expensive (99kn)
  • I got a 2014 T-shirt edition in a random draw 🙂
  • all in all, see you there!
