Finally, we will show how to use TypeScript in a project, and explore the tooling support in VSCode and other IDEs.

Longer Presentation(20 - 30min):

How to Build a Mobile IoT App in JavaScript

We wondered how hard it would be to create one of those door locks you control with your phone. Then we decided to find out - 100% in JavaScript. The result is Sesame App - Unlock Your Door with Your Fingerprint.

In this talk you’ll learn about:

- Building a mobile app in React Native (and using iPhone’s TouchID)
- Building a lock system with Arduino and Raspberry Pi
- And making the two talk with Firebase’s Realtime Database.

Ricky Padilla, Scott Wilkins, and Mike Coulter are recent Galvanize graduates. They love making React & React Native apps and tinkering.


We'll have beer and pizza! We'll also allow people to announce any job opportunities they may have at that time so you can socialize with potential applicants.
