We have a special treat this month - TJ VanToll from Progress is in town (creators of NativeScript). He'll be showing us how to use Angular to make native AR apps!

🕶️ Using Augmented Reality with Angular
👤 TJ VanToll

With the recent introductions of ARKit on iOS and ARCore on Android, developers are using augmented reality to create a new wave of innovative applications... as well as a lot of really stupid stuff.

The first thing we’re going to do is demo a whole bunch of AR apps, because I think you need to know they exist—for science. Then we’ll talk about how you, as an Angular developer can participate in the augmented reality revolution using NativeScript. NativeScript allows you to leverage powerful iOS and Android features such as AR, all while building using technologies you know and love—namely, Angular.

In this talk you’ll see how it all works. Come to learn how to build the augmented reality apps of the future using Angular. Or come learn how to build an AR fart app with Angular. Your choice really.

TJ VanToll is a front-end developer, author, and a Principal Developer Advocate for Progress. TJ has over a decade of web development experience, including a few years working on the jQuery team. Nowadays, he spends his time helping web developers build mobile apps through projects like NativeScript.

❓ Angular Team Q&A
👤 The Floating Head of Stephen Fluin

There's a lot going on in the Angular world these days. Angular v6 is coming out soon, Angular Elements let you reuse your Angular components in non-Angular apps, and ng-conf is right around the corner. After the talk, Stephen Fluin from the Angular team will video conference in for a Q&A - have your questions ready!
