Join us on February 14 to hear Dwight Barbour give us all an Intro to NativeScript! What is it? NativeScript is a cross-platform mobile tech stack. Dwight will go into the why, what, and how. Learn how JavaScript/ECMAscript is not just for the web! Compare tech stacks for using JS to build native mobile iOS and Android apps and explore NativeScript's ecosystem and their free IDE. Dwight will also discuss native vs hybrid vs cross-platform and moving from web to mobile dev (hint: you already have the skills!).

Dwight is a web-database developer and IT consultant. Lately dabbling in mobile tech stacks, solving business issues, and coaching new IT consultants. He has over 15 years of design and teaching experience for building a skilled IT workforce and is currently building curriculum for a school based on predominantly JavaScript/ECMAscript as the language of choice.



Joyent lives on the leading edge of technical innovation. Our team pioneered public cloud computing (and hybrid cloud), nurtured and grew Node.js into a de facto standard for web, mobile and IoT architectures, and was among the first to embrace and industrialize containers, compute-centric object storage, and what is now coming to be known as serverless computing. We are passionate about technology.


We hope to see all of you for our next meetup! Bring your questions, and if you're looking for a job (or hiring) be prepared to connect with others!

As usual, food will be provided!
