  • Angular & Beers - Delight your organization with Material Design
    This event will feature the following: • Introduction and Pizza - 6pm • Tech Talk - Delight your organization with Material Design - 6:15pm • Networking and Beers - 7pm The tech talk will be presented by Michael Prentice of DevIntent. Abstract: Traditionally, many companies haven’t had the ability to make UX a strong part of their internal Line-of-Business (LOB) web apps. With the availability of Material Design across many platforms, it is much easier for your development team to create cost-effective LOB apps with quality UX. In this talk, we’ll explore how to use Angular Material to create LOB apps that will delight your users and impress your organization. This will be a free preview and rehearsal for the same presentation at AngularMix (https://angularmix.com) in Orlando next week.
