8:00 PM: Varun Vachhar, Front-End Developer at Rangle.io. “Ionic: supercharge your PhoneGap app”
Ionic is a beautiful, open source framework for developing hybrid mobile apps with HTML5. Built using Cordova, AngularJS, Gulp and SASS, it provides rich, native-style UI components and interactions, and it provides APIs to build your own custom components. Varun will talk about what Ionic is and where it fits in, how to install it and start building apps. He will also address one of the biggest challenges of building HTML apps for mobile - the performance of transitions - and he’ll show some code samples of how to achieve smooth hardware-accelerated animations. Lastly, he’ll share a case study and talk about how Rangle.io is using Ionic.
Speaker Bio: Varun Vachhar is a design leader and front-end developer at rangle.io, creating amazing user experiences for mobile and web applications. He studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta and Interactive/Media/Design at the Dutch Royal Academy of Art. As a result of his diverse background and experience, he specializes in bridging the gap between design and development.
9:00 PM: End of Meetup.
