some of you may have seen me talking about coconut recently, a react-inspired UI framework for Haxe that we’re using at Docler Holding. For those who’ve never heard of it, here are some talks:
- a short intro from Oct 2018
- a detailed talk from May 2019 about the principles behind, a bit of history and how coconut differs from React in particular
- a workshop following up on that talk where I build an awesome calculator and an awkward timer
Now that coconut has reached a certain level of maturity, I would like to spread knowledge on how to use it most effectively. And I believe the best method of knowledge transfer in depth is the context of real world software.
So what I would like to propose is for 4-6 people (myself included) to get together for a 5 day coding session, during which we’d create an application from scratch (we’d get a house/apartment somewhere, so we can not only crank out some code, but also hang out a bit, have some dinner together and discuss all sorts of things). I know that’s quite a lot of time, but the goal is to go way beyond tutorial level and to actually explore different approaches to keep complexity at bay. I’ve never done this before, but I’m fairly confident that this is the most effective way to show how to leverage coconut in the most productive ways.
If anyone is genuinely interested, please let me know. If we get enough people, I’ll look into organizing something
