Shorter Presentation(10 - 15min):

Getting Started with Testing in Angular - Elana Kopelevich

Beginning with some basic testing terminology and going through a few approaches to writing tests for different purposes, this talk will be a beginner-level introduction to Angular unit testing. We’ll cover the differences between isolated unit tests and integrated unit tests, deep vs. shallow testing, and when to use each.

Elana is as a Software Developer at Pinnacol Assurance. Prior to this, she was an Instructor at Galvanize.

Longer Presentation(20 - 30min):

TypeScript and React - Emma Ramirez

In this talk, we'll be covering how to use Typescript alongside React or react-like libraries, and how to leverage the type system Typescript provides alongside React's paradigms. Alongside this, we'll talk about using both the React and Typescript ecosystems effectively, and examples will be provided. This talk will be targeted towards those who have (even very basic) familiarity with Typescript or React, but not necessarily both.

Emma is the lead Frontend Engineer at Stateless, Inc. They love type theory, and functional-reactive programming. Known to consume their weight in Arizona tea.


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.
