Next Meetup

Let's talk about TypeScript ORMs and integrating TypeScript into JavaScript!
There'll be food, drink, merriment, and TypeScript discussions and talks! Our presenters this time will be Scott Jones and Alex Hughes, both software engineers at Education First/EF Go Ahead Tours. Scott will be talking about organizing business models and their respective data sets using TypeORM (http://typeorm.io/#/) with PostgreSQL. Scott is a code junkie, picks heavy things up and puts them down, and enjoys seeing people's eyes light up when they learn something new. Alex will be talking about a beginner's approach to TypeScript. Why TypeScript? How to integrate TypeScript into JavaScript code and reap the benefits. TypeScript is increasing in popularity, and for good reason. According to the 2018 State of JavaScript survey, developers are finding TypeScript to produce "robust, less error-prone code", with "elegant programming style and patterns", "powerful developer tooling" and "good documentation". Alex will present the basics of TypeScript and demonstrate how to integrate TypeScript into a simple JavaScript project. When Alex isn't coding, he enjoys spending time in the outdoors, traveling, and learning new languages.
