    Thanks for the opportunity to share with you all! I've linked to the power point presentation here: http://uglow.github.io/AngularJS-Melbourne-Talk/

    I learned a lot from different conversations on how to improve things better. If anyone has advice on how to improve the (slightly buggy) behaviour of the slide-out menu on the site - drop me a note :)

    With two-way data binding, for every onKeyUp, the view is synchronized with model (or vice versa).

    So, with three-way data binding, for every onKeyUp, the view residing in your local-pc is synchronized with the model also residing in your local pc, plus is also synchronized with a remote db which could be thousands of miles away? That would make the app very chatty across the network, and would not sit well with architecture astronauts.

      That's why your Firebase data structures should be designed slightly differently in order to update only what it really needs to update. Besides, it uses WebSockets which doesn't establish a new connection with every data change.

      I would set up a video camera to record the event, however, I'm not sure if I would be able to record the actual presentation, e.g. screen cast... I will check with the host if they have the equipment/software to do that.

      I help my mum with Word for Windows and I can edit basic HTML using notepad, so she calls me a 'Developer'. I aspire to become a manual tester/QA person one day.

    Would it be possible to get an idea of the timing of the agenda? In my calendar, it says it's from 6 to 9, but just wondering if the talks go until then? (I have a young family at home, so just want to know what time I'll be able to get back to them)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
