Famo.us/Angular: A case study of AngularJS as a framework for frameworks

We have an exciting talk coming on 8/18!

Famo.us/Angular: A case study of AngularJS as a framework for frameworks 
Speaker: Zack Brown (bio below)

Famo.us is a newcomer on the web framework scene.  It allows developers to create high performance, cross-platform apps with first-class animations and interactions, but it takes an approach that’s very different from traditional HTML and CSS.  While Famo.us shines as a rendering engine, it is not an MVC.  On its own it can lack structure, testability, and streamlined data management.  AngularJS, on the other hand, handles each of these very well.  This talk will describe the technical challenges and considerations of integrating these two seemingly orthogonal yet complementary libraries, while highlighting AngularJS’s ability to be a “framework for frameworks.”

Bio

Zack Brown is a developer and partner at Thomas Street.  Over the last 10 years, he has developed desktop and web applications in technologies ranging from C to .NET, Java to Rails, Flash to PHP, and most recently, AngularJS and Famo.us.


Since starting to work with AngularJS two years ago, he has built Angular apps for companies big and small, including Coca-Cola, the Seattle Space Needle, and Ford.  Zack studied computer science at the University of Washington and currently lives in San Francisco.

    Can the gentleman who did the first lightning talk post his slides? He had some cool bower resources that I can't find anymore...

    Awesome presentation on Angular.js and Famo.us by Zack Brown. Thank you Zach for helping me with understanding $sce.trustAsHtml. You're a saint! I also enjoyed the lightning talks and the young diverse crowd that was in attendance.

    Will there be a waitlist at the door?

    August 18, 2014

  • WIL P.

    Also, declining my RSVP in lieu of the live feed of the Mountain View meetup, to make room for a wait-lister since I'm not giving my lightning talk until next month.

  • Michelle K.

    Hi everyone - if you are interested in giving a lightning talk (~5 min on how you used Angular in a recent project), then please message me! Would love to have you speak at the end.

    • Michelle K.

      Fixed! :) thanks

      August 18, 2014

    • WIL P.

      Sorry. Did not see the reply re: slides. Too late to prepare prior to the meetup. I'll be happy to present our approach at the next meetup.

  • Ryan T.

    Looking forward to the meetup tonight. I'm interested in meeting someone who can help do code review for our web application. The front end has been built in mostly JS and AngularJS by an outside firm (not a developer myself). Any help is appreciated and willing to pay fees for anyone to take a deep dive.

    I'm on waitlist and my friend is confirmed. Can I attend in-person with him?

    August 18, 2014

  • Mike C.

    How does the wait list look? Do I have a chance of getting in?

    August 18, 2014

  • Sumit C.

    Is it on 8/18 or 8/19? The initial data was 8/19. Here in description also there are two dates....

    • Sumit C.

      Sorry confused with the Mountain View one...

    Do you wish lightning talkers to present slides?

    Hi, Can I bring one of my friends with me? He's still on waiting list.
    Surprisingly, we both registered on the same day and were on waiting list. I got confirmed the same day but he's still in WL.

    Hi, is anyone looking for a Front End Developer with a bit of experience with Angular.js?

    3 · August 13, 2014

  • Leonardo Z.

    In the future are you going to host lightning talks?

    August 12, 2014

    • Michelle K.

      Yes... I'll announce that now!

    Question: Will this differ from this meetup? http://www.meetup.com/AngularJS-MTV/events/199435722/

    1 · August 12, 2014

    • Christina H.

      These events will not be very different - confirming they offer the same main talk (Zack Brown) to make it convenient for SF and South Bay folks to both see the talk.
