I wrote a bit about how we record talks at JSOxford and the kit we use. Hopefully it'll be useful to some folk.

I also build an NPM module to handle this for you. It'll wrap around classes or objects and allow you to use the `_` prefix naming convention to create actual private properties.

I wrote about how to create private variables in JavaScript.

I look at the various ways to achieve private properties on classes while highlighting some of the issues with each method.

I'm looking to compile a list of meetups/usergroups that offer support to speakers to help with travel costs.

Does anyone know of any?

Hey Mastodons, I hear you like open source and federation, so I'd like to tell you about gettogether.community/ an open source, federated(*) event planning service similar to Meetup

It's free to use, and while it's still very early development it is live! Try it yourself, share it with your friends, start a team ahd have a Get Together! #gettogether

* Federation is simple and minimal, any help would be most welcomed. Source code is at github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get mastodon.cloud/media/cPwAJ8QWw

I'm looking for someone who could give a talk about either MutationObserver or JavaScript proxies. Any suggestions?

Today a built a little webapp that can fetch Twitter profile images based on the users handle.

Ugh! My local network suddenly stopped resolving internal hostnames without the `.local` domain suffix included.

No idea why. 🀷

I wish the Mastodon PWA saved my scroll position when I leave. I hate having to views toots in reverse.

Anyone have any friends working in West London, whose companies might be able to host Codebar* workshops on occasional evenings? If so, please spread the word; the West London chapter is facing a shortage of host centres!

*Codebar is a non-profit initiative that facilitates the growth of a diverse tech community by running regular programming workshops.

I just had my first article published in Smashing Magazine! πŸ˜„ It's an intro to Web Payments, including the latest news on browser and 3rd party app support. Hope you like it! smashingmagazine.com/2018/01/o #web #webpayments #ecommerce

Today marks 6 months of me being sober. Never would have thought it this time last year.

In 2018 I would be very happy to provide some remote mentoring to someone early on in their web development career. I'm a master of nothing, but could share experience of Web APIs, presenting, blogging, tech leading, interviewing, career choices etc. If it might be useful to chat e.g. once a week or whatever's convenient for you, just DM me or email peter.oshaughnessy@gmail.com with a bit about yourself and we can figure something out :)

I cannot adequately convey the extent of my frustration with the lack of screen reader accessibility in the @AWSCloud console. Buttons and form fields missing accessible names, missing keyboard support... this is a11y 101
