AngularJS Architecture, Demo of Life Time Fitness LT Connect

Technology may excite geeks amongst us, but its the application of technology that excites rest of the world. Come and see the application side of technology this month.

In continuation of our December meetup that focused on rapid prototyping using Bootstrap and AngularJs, this month we will discuss AngularJs architecture and how it is being used in a real world application at Life Time Fitness. 


6:00pm to 6:30pm - open networking - connect with others, make friends, bring business cards

6:30pm to 6:45pm - Venkatesh R and Shashi S - co-founders of an exciting social start-up "Thingora" - to demonstrate Thingora to us and share a little bit details of their journey in the start-up land with us.

6:45pm to 7:15pm - "AngularJS Architecture" discussion, presented by Phil McCullough, Director of IT, ARRT. Phil has authored an Architecture paper on integrating Touch Gestures into Angular.

7:15pm - 8:45pm - Eric Levine, Sr. Director of Technology at Lifetime Fitness, and his team will demonstrate LT Connect - a Bootstrap + AngularJS application, followed by discussion on technologies used, approach, lessons learned and Q&A. To see LT Connect in use, go to their Google Plus page at

And here is Eric's LT Connect workout report from Friday that he received as he was leaving the club.

    I unfortunately was to sick to attend! Are there any slides or sample code we can get a link to for review?

    Thanks I wish I could have made it; just recently started coding in AngularJS or a Healthcare company!

    I want to start by saying sorry :), Thingora probably took more time than planned. The room was pumped up and there was lot of enthusiasm- greatly appreciated. Wow! Night just lit up with the awesome presentations and lots of energy in the room. Time just flew by!. I really liked the rigor and dedication put into the presentation including the hardware and software, giving the full rounded understanding of the system. This was my first meet up and I enjoyed thoroughly. I want to end by saying Thank you very much for giving opportunity to present Thingora, It was an honor. Looking forward to upcoming meetings. Our Word! if given opportunity to present again, Thingora will stick to time and well Pizza on the house sponsored by :)..

    if you have time please register into thingora and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Have a great warm night!

    I enjoyed the presentations, but I think three were too many for the time allotted. I would have liked more time with the LTConnect group to really dig into the code and see their process. A more in-depth look would have been interesting.

      Kate, as organizer, I learned my lesson here - I take responsibility for making presenters rush through - something that we will continue improving upon.

    Phil M. I learned more about some of the AngularJS architecture considerations from your short presentation than what i had learned from my 1 year or so exposure to this framework. Eric and Life Time Fitness team, thank you for going through all of the trouble to bring your LT Connect servers on a cart and give us an insightful demo of your real world app built on AngularJS - it convinced me that this framework is capable of delivering more than just certain fragments of your web app. And Thing or a team, you've built enough excitement from your short demo and it looks like you will need to come back for a followup session.

    I think the presentations could have used more direction and focused in on the value of Angular. It may also present more value for developers to understand how you can transform html/css websites into web applications in hours, why Angular and Firebase are great for rapid prototyping and the importance of understanding patterns over directives. Thanks for hosting.

      David, thank you for joining and sharing your thoughts. If would've joined us for the December 2013 Meetup, you would've found exactly what you were looking for. Focus for this month's Meetup was architecture and demo of real world business application built using Angular. As I mentioned, I as organizer could've done better job and yes, we will continue to get better. I believe presenters themselves did wonderful job given constraints they were given. Thanks for your feedback though.

    Really loved the learning about Angular presentation before seeing Lifetime's application of it. Very helpful for me to understand things!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
