We have an exciting talk coming on 12/10!

Angular on the go: Using Angular to power mobile apps
Speaker: Ari Lerner, author of ng-book (, curator of ng-newsletter (, co-founder of (

Angular is flexible for prototyping web applications quickly and powerful enough to power production-ready applications. For the desktop, for sure, but what about for the mobile platform? Do the same rules apply?

In this talk, we’ll discuss the options we have available for building mobile apps with Angular. We’ll look at UI frameworks and toolchains. We’ll look at ways to produce the best user experience for our users, from reducing latency from server to device as well as techniques to keep our apps responsive.

***New Guest Badging System***

The Google Guest badging system has changed.

We recommended pre-printed badges. To get a pre-printed badge, please complete the following steps by 12p on Friday 12/6 to ensure one gets created for you:

2)Please provide a full first name and last name (if your profile doesn't publicly show that, you can send us a message with that information)

If a pre-printed badge is not available for you when you arrive, you may create one on-demand, but due to the logistics of this process, please note there may be a long wait and this option will only be available until 6:15pm.

Getting to the meetup by public transit (from Caltrain)


Look for the Shoreline Shuttle stop (2nd bus shelter in outer circle, near entrance ( <--use "Satellite" view to see best). You'll be riding in the reverse direction from most commuters, but the shuttle itself goes in a loop. Take the shuttle to stop #7 (Google) and get off at the corner of Charleston and Huff. You'll be a 2 minute walk from the meetup.

Please note, the Caltrain area can be confusing due to all the different shuttles doing dropoff/pickups. Couple tips:

• Please look for a white shuttle van that looks similar to the one pictured here (

• Shuttle will have a small sign that reads, "Shoreline Caltrain" or "MTV Caltrain"

The relevant stop times are below. Note that due to traffic, the buses do not always run according to this schedule. If a bus arrives early, it will wait until the shuttle time to depart, but if it is running late, it will only make a quick stop, so please keep an eye out.

Leaving MTV Caltrain (note, pickup times are approximate)

6:07pm <--note, this arrives to Bldg 46 at approx 6:37p (after the first talk starts - please only take this if you have completed the steps above to get a pre-printed badge, otherwise the on-demand badge service will unfortunately no longer be available)

We'll have a shiny Google bus do a single run (about 8:15pm) to get everyone back to Caltrain in time to catch the 8:49pm Northbound train. The bus will leave from B46, right outside where the meetup is held.
