**** IMPORTANT ****
The second half of this event is an interactive code lab. Please bring your laptops (fully-charged would be ideal) to work through the code labs.
All CodeLabs will be run using the Chrome Dev Editor (browser IDE). Please install this extension prior to attending this meetup for optimal benefit.
A good grasp of HTML, JS and CSS is desirable. More details on setup/requirements will be listed here closer to the event.
This is a Polymer Polytechnic event, part of the ItsHackademic series being held worldwide.
Web Components are a new set of web platform features that enable developers to build applications in declarative, composable ways.
Polymer is a (Google-developed) library that polyfills Web Component support on modern browsers, and builds on those features to simplify and enhance their usage for rapid development.
Come see what the buzz about Polymer is all about.
