[Updates] Upcoming meetups!!

Hey Folks!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend! The weather has been perfect -- happy Spring (at last!!).

First, I want to thank all who attended our inaugural JavaScript Night #1 at Priceline.com two weeks ago. We had terrific turnout and two good talks. I've posted a few pictures there if you want to check them out. If you have any, put them up!

For those interested, here’s a link to Mastering Bitcoin by Andreas Antonopolous, the book Tom Goldenberg recommended. And after the talk on passwordless authentication, Austin Kenny and John Masse pointed out to me the W3C’s Webauthn recommendation. I was worried that passwordless authentication may have missed its moment; it’s nice to see the issue is very topical.

(Since I was asked, here a link for you interested in trying out MongoDB Atlas and one for Meteor for those interested in trying it out. You can also learn more about what Zeit.co does -- beside using passwordless authentication.)

This Thursday (4/26), Hack Night will be hosted at Priceline.com. We’re planning a simple workshop on Progressive Web Applications (PWAs), so RSVP if you’re interested. PWAs are all about building web applications that have the behavior and power of native mobile applications.The brainchild of Frances Berriman and Alex Russell, it includes reactive and responsive paradigms. Pete LaPage provides an excellent summary in a codelab at Google’s Developer site.

Looking ahead, taking attendees’ feedback, we’ll put together a night featuring VueJS an do more on blockchain and smart contracts.If you know basic JavaScript or jQuery, FreeCodeCamp has a good starter article. Vuejs.org has good documentation and CodeingtheSmartWay provides a quick tutorial you can try.

Finally, if you’re interested in learning more about smart contracts and how they’re being used, consider attending “Talks on Smart Contracts” on May 12, hosted at Rise, organized by Tom Goldenberg, and moderated by me. I promise it will be a night to remember.

I’ll see you at Hack Night this Thursday! Keep the suggestions coming.

Save the dates:

May 31: Hack Night
June 12: JavaScript Night #2

Cheers!

Alim
