August Meetup - Cayley and the Graph Stack (GoLang), Card UI Architecture

  • Aug 26, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Cayley and the Graph Stack (Barak Michener, Google)

Barak Michener, the lead maintainer of Cayley, discusses why you might use a graph store, and some of the benefits and challenges and key concepts to working with graph data. Time permitting, a user's introduction to Cayley an explanation of the major moving parts. 

CardUI Architecture: Enabling Embeddable JavaScript Apps (Chris Tse, Technologist & Designer

Single-page JavaScript frameworks (like Meteor, Angular, and Ember) and mobile-focused rendering frameworks (like and Ionic) illustrate how the growing power of HTML5 and CSS3 is helping to close the polished-app gap between JavaScript-based apps and native apps.

However, native operating systems are not standing still. Apple just announced support in iOS8 for third-party notification widgets along with their new extension system, and Google is unifying their user interactions around the Card UI paradigm with their Material Design style guide. Both Apple and Google are betting that embeddable and tactile “cards” will be become the new units of assembly in composing applications within user workflows.

Chris Tse has been championing the development of an open source “card” framework that would allow multiple JavaScript apps to work together inside another application container. In this talk, Chris will show how these HTML5-rendering cards can be coded in any JavaScript framework, connected via well-defined contracts using asynchronous promises, built by different individuals and companies, and mixed-and-matched to fit the end-users’ workflow.

Lightning Talks:

Apps Script & Big Query: Short demonstration of the beauty of version support in Apps Script and how to get data from BigQuery, etc

Polymer & Paper:  Exploring the Polymer Designer Tool with practical usage examples

Plus food, drinks, etc. 

Since this is a volunteer organization, we are always looking for presenters from our group.  If you have something you'd like to share with the group (however small or large) please contact us.
