Week 42 - 2019
The weekly report from 10/14 to 10/20. You can edit this page (on github) if you find any error.
- I tried to update Permissions API to web standard one. Deno now uses its own APIs for permissions, but we realized W3C defines browser's standard Permissions API. So we decided to switch to that APIs. But my first attempt failed because the required change was so big and I couldn't finish it in a proper way. So I closed it for the moment.
- Gave a LT about frontend engineering in general in the office of SEQSENSE. It was only for the employees of the company. It was a little diffult for me to prepare the talk because I'm not used to talking about frontend engineering to the general audiences. I'm used to talking about some specific topics of frontend engineering to the frontend engineers, such as babel, webpack, etc. However talking about the entire frontend engineering was a huge challenge to me. I don't find similar talks frequently in local conferences because they also usually talk towards some specific audiences in specific area. They suppose many things and often go into the very detail of the topic. In the preparation, I remeber the talk by Pamela Fox almost 10 years ago. I heard the talk on site. She talked about the history of the browsers from the first days of the internet. So I borrowed some topics from her talk such as the first html pages, etc. The talk was, in my view, successful. Many people asked many questions to me after the talk, which was rare in recent conferences/meetups.
- An article about our robot, SQ-2, was published from one of our investors, Mitsubishi Estate.
- We had a meetup of Japanese Deno enthusiasts in Japan. The authors of the denobook met for the first time after the publishing event. We talked on many topics about Deno.
- 10-year retrospective was a meme in Japanese twitter timeline. I did my own.

- This week I found that swift language and D language are aiming to implement borrowing and ownership feature in the languages. For now, rust is the only language which has this feature, but it seems that everyone now agrees that the feature is good and efficient in the programming, and that authors started thinking to introduce it in thier languages.
