Workshop: AngularJS for Beginners

**Please note, a new guest badging system was put in place last Nov, if you are not aware of that, please be sure to read below for how this may affect you**

----------------

Want to learn AngularJS? In this short, hands-on workshop we’ll build your first AngularJS app and learning fundamentals along the way. By the end of the session, you’ll not only be confident to build your own apps in the future, but you’ll walk away with your own, functional application. Join Ari Lerner, the author of ng-book (https://ng-book.com) and the Angular team and learn AngularJS the right way!

---------------

Please note, this event has very limited space, so please attend only if you are brand new to AngularJS.  

If you are looking for more intermediate/advanced topics, the videos from last month's ng-conf are now available here.

Due to the hands-on format of this event, it will not be livestreamed.

Agenda:
6pm - Door opens, Food, Drinks and Socializing
6:30 - Workshop begins (Ari Lerner)
8:15pm - The End & Bus to Mountain View Caltrain leaves


***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 Thurs 2/13 to ensure one gets created for you:

1)RSVP
2)Please provide a full first name and last name (if your meetup.com 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 may not be available past 6:30pm.  

Getting to the meetup by public transit (from Caltrain)

FROM THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION

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)

5:06pm
5:27pm
5:46pm
6:07pm <--note, this arrives to Bldg 46 at approx 6:37p (after the workshop starts - please only take this if you have completed the steps above to get a pre-printed badge, otherwise the on-demand badge service may no longer be available)

GETTING BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION
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.

    Fantastic presentation. If you could keep up you learned a lot. (just make sure to put one eye on your computer and one eye on the projection)

    Great, Ari is an awesome presenter, I would for sure watch the full presentation that he said would be between 4 and 6 hours.

    February 19, 2014

  • James D.

    Wonderful presentation. Thanks Ari.

    Can you please send out a mail to those who registered but can't show up to change their RSVP?

    I'm currently #9 on the wait list with two hours to go for the event. Any idea if I can sneak in?

    • Christina H.

      Apologies, but there is not likely to be extra space in the room (every seat is accounted for in the room if everyone shows).

      February 18, 2014

    • Dhruv V.

      Thanks Christina for the prompt reply! I've moved up to #5, so there is hope :)

    Note that this training is specifically designed for those who want to learn Angular with limited knowledge of the framework. It's definitely a beginner's session.

    That said, bring your computer and be ready to type/ask questions/get involved/etc. It will be a ton of fun tonight.

    I don't know my number on the waitlist. If I don't get any notification about attendance by 4pm tomorrow, can I still plan on coming to the event?

    February 17, 2014

    • Carlos A.

      You have to be there to get in if there are no shows. They won't know that until the workshop starts

      February 17, 2014

  • William L.

    Will additional seats be released soon or has capacity been reached?

    February 17, 2014

  • Kevin A.

    aw I got the notification for this today! But I'm on the waiting list :-/

    Are there any recommended online resources that will prepare us for the event?

    February 12, 2014

      Ari, first off: excellent work on the book. One thing that would have been nice, however, would have been an option to buy both the treeware + e-book in one bundled package. Otherwise, if you want the source code, your only option now seems to be $120 ($79 + $40) -- quite steep.For example, in the past I've bought packages like this from Smashing Magazine; when you buy their hardbound book, they always give you all the electronic versions (e.g., mobi, epub, PDF).

      Patrick, thanks for the comment. I wish that would have been possible. Since we're an independent publisher we don't have the capacity to handle shipping and warehousing, so we chose to get the print version (for all those who requested it) through Amazon. Unfortunately Amazon does not have an API for us to order books through, so we have no control over the physical print version of the book (unlike the ebook version). :/
