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 (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 (http://www.youtube.com/user/ngconfvideos).
Due to the hands-on format of this event, it will not be livestreamed.

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:
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 (http://goo.gl/maps/uQv61) <--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 (http://eblog.mercedes-benz-passion.com/2010/04/daimler-vans-usa-launches-fourth-sprinter-model/).
• 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 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.
