• Exploring React-based Apps and Ember Apps with Indy Tech Talks

    Do you build, or want to build, single page apps in JavaScript and related technologies? Join us at Launch Indy to discuss some key differences and similarities between React (and its ecosystem) and Ember. React has taken the web by storm. It's used in bootcamps as an introduction to webapp development. Ember has been around a lot longer, and has more of a quieter following (for now), and is also used for webapp development. Both are totally valid ways to build webapps, but each has a very different philosophy and approach. This presentation will cover the differences and similarities in installation, setup, routing, state management, testing, concurrency, and more! A big thanks to Greenlight Guru (www.greenlight.guru) for providing the food and space for the evening. We'll enjoy delicious food from Nameless Catering (www.namelesscatering.com), the preferred caterer for Indy's tech community.

  • Incrementally Adopting Apollo and GraphQL with Indy Tech Talks

    Come on out and join Indy Tech Talks at Union 525 (http://union525.com/) to learn about Incrementally Adopting Apollo and GraphQL in an Ember.js application. There are many benefits of using Apollo and GraphQL, but making the switch can feel daunting when working with an enterprise application. Doing the work all at once is time-consuming and costly, and often times won't align with business realities. But there's an incremental approach you can take.

    • What we'll do Hey All! We've been dormant for a while but hope you'll come join us at Union 525 (http://union525.com/) to learn how to FastBoot with Ember. FastBoot works by running your Ember application in Node.js to render your application server side . When a user visits your site, the initial HTML is rendered and served to the user. The very first thing they see is your content. We'll look at the fastboot addon, data storage, and the deployment process for apps using fastboot.

A big thanks to greenlight.guru for hosting. Another big thank you to Anchor Point Technology for providing food and drinks! Your Ember Meetup
