We'll be bouncing between locations for the next few months while Learning Objects is building out their new space. This month Bloomberg has graciously offered up their K St location.
We have two great talks lined up:
ng-conf 2014 recap
The first Angular conference was held recently on January 15th - 17th, and a lot of interesting topics & advice came up during the conference. This 45 minute talk will go through some of the more interesting optimization tricks on display, as well as a short bit on some of the philosophy behind parts of Angular, and some tidbits about the future of Angular.
Wesley Cho is a frontend developer at Learning Objects. As the company Angular expert, he is a sometimes contributor to the Angular core, and has contributed to various Angular plugins. He is typically found helping people in the #angularjs IRC channel.
Gruntled: Bringing sanity to your build process with grunt.js
Gone are the days of assembling your web project with a mess of bash scripts or custom shell commands that only half the team can remember. Grunt provides a framework for running tasks, making it easy to automate and enforce build steps such as linting, testing, deploying, launching servers, compiling, and minifying. The first half of this 45 minute talk will focus on how to set up your project with grunt using community-contributed tasks; the second will look at how you can develop your own tasks to customize your build process.
Nick Heiner is a web developer at Opower, where he has spent the better part of the last nine months building grunt tasks for his team’s SDK. Nick has contributed to Bower, Foundation, and Chai, as well as smaller grunt-related projects like ben-eb/grunt-available-tasks and dylang/observatory.
