Happy new year! Welcome back, JS'ers! Please note the location change! We'll be at the Cypress Offices this time. To start off this year we'll have Trevor De Koekkoek tell us about Hasura - a Realtime GraphQL engine based on Postgresql, and Jennifer Ponder will introduce us to React VR.

Talk 1: Use Hasura with Angular by Trevor De Koekkoek
As GraphQL gains momentum, we have more and more tooling available to us to work with it. Hasura provides a GraphQL API based on your Postgresql database and can also connect with other microservices you have.
Trevor de Koekkoek is a Web and Mobile Application expert specializing in Front-end development, Angular and GraphQL.

Talk 2: React VR by Jennifer Ponder
Virtual Reality is everywhere and certainly where the world is headed. This technology can be seen in gps based apps, interactive model experiences, and gaming. It’s certainly a big deal. Now there is a new framework for web based virtual reality apps called React VR. React VR is a JavaScript framework developed by Oculus, a division of Facebook. This framework takes influence from React to allow developers a declarative model to write VR apps. It is currently designed to incorporate 360 degree video content with 2D user interfaces.
I will give an overview of React VR's key facts, information on dependencies and the modular components one uses to build React VR programs. Then, I will show an example of what the React VR CLI looks like, which allows developers to set up the scaffolding for their applications.
Jennifer Ponder is a lover of all things media and tech. I have extensive experience in customer account management, product development with software plans, and digital marketing. I love adventures and journeys that involve learning something new and exciting. Which is why over two years ago I decided to start scuba diving every spring and summer.
