Join us at Shopify's office for beer, pizza, and another round of talks on AngularJS.

After returning from NG Europe and PhoneGap Day abroad, Nick Van Weerdenburg & Yuri Takhteyev (CEO and CTO from ) present a talk on How to Embrace Angular 2.0 Today with a Future-Friendly Angular 1.3 Application!

Matias Niemelä will speak about Improving AngularJS code with ES6 and more.

We all know Angular 2.0 will leverage ES6, but why wait until later on to reap the benefits of this new language expansion pack? Let's explore what ES6 has to offer and apply these new features to an existing angular app. Let's also see how it improves our testing capabilities and also explore other methods of extending our JS code.
