7:25: Alan Hietala: “Parallel Development on a Common Service Platform.” 

Alan will share what's worked and what hasn't while simultaneously building out 2 mobile apps and 2 web apps that share a common set of services. He’ll cover dependency management, service layer design, and architecture tips for minimizing changes that could break the other apps being built out on the service layer.

Speak Bio:

Alan is an expert in full stack javascript currently working on the worlds best internet enabled thermostats at ecobee.com and spearheading ecobee's HTML5 platform which targets both the traditional web and mobile apps with a single unified javascript core.

8:10 PM:  Peter MacMillan: "Letting go of "this" and embracing functional programming in JavaScript"

Peter will talk about functional programming in JavaScript, how AngularJS avoids the pitfalls of "this", and how to compose better, reusable, and testable units of JavaScript. An example of converting "class-style" code into functional code will be provided, demonstrating the benefits of writing better code.

Speaker Bio:

Peter works as a Senior Front-End Architect at Juice Mobile and he has a deep understanding of the full stack. He enjoys challenging what he knows with emerging technologies and his fundamental requirements in work are to work with people and play a role in the larger picture. Find out more on his website.

8:30: Derek Braid: "Creating a Data Visualization app using Angular and D3: Canadian Cities Over Time"

Derek will talk about how he recently used Angular and D3 to build a data visualization for hamiltoneconomicsummit.ca.  He will also review some code snippets.

Speaker Bio:  

Derek is a web developer who creates interactive digital content for the web. He develops full-scale web applications, custom web design for individuals and small business. He's a pro at creating data visualizations to showcase research and analysis and reporting and analytics dashboards for small business on the web.

8:50 PM: Xiyang Chen, Developer at Rangle.io: "Angular Best Practices for Testing and Code Sharing"

Xiyang has lots of industry experience and he'll go over best practices with you, using some case study examples from his project work.

Xiyang moved to Toronto after a couple of years working for startups in the United States. A week after arriving he ended up at rangle.io, where he has made himself an essential contributor to the many startup clients rangle.io serves.

    Great atmosphere, good talks, and was fun. I have not used angular.js much but am now going to try and incorporate it into one of my projects.

    The presentations are short

    June 24, 2014

    • Amanda C.

      Thanks for your feedback. Normally we have more time for presentations. This meetup was a bit rushed with 5 talks and a networking session.... In future we will likely do 2-3 speakers per meetup.

  • Henry P.

    Unfortunately, a last minute crisis means I can't attend. Sorry 'bout that.

    • Ronen V.

      Same here... Please record it

      1 · June 24, 2014

    • Amanda C.

      We have recorded the talks but it will take a bit of time to edit them and post them. We will share links here for all past talks when we have them.

    Will this be recorded? Unfortunately, I had to cancel on this last minute for work. :(

    Do you know of any decent parking in the area ?

    June 17, 2014

    • Amanda C.

      We encourage public transit if possible/ it's easier than parking... but there is a lot right next to Polar Mobile, at the NE corner of Simcoe/Front. Price fluctuates, depending on what else is going on in the area. Simcoe Place is another option: http://www.simcoeplac...­
