A Real World Stack for Combined Web and Native App Development (Dan Menssen)

Over the past several months, I've had the opportunity to architect an AngularJS based application serving as the storefront for a large restaurant chain, which will power both the website and the native mobile apps via PhoneGap. In the process I've learned a lot about Angular, about managing a build system to handle both web and app builds, and about how reusable code written for the web can be for a mobile app. This talk is about the greatest hits of those lessons. I'll touch on Angular, PhoneGap, RequireJS, and Grunt, but I don't expect prior knowledge of any of them.

Dan is a Minneapolis developer who is currently doing consulting work at Olson (the ad agency) after burning himself out running the technology side of a startup company. His background is as PHP developer, but has always had more fun ranting at people about how cool Javascript is.

8:15/8:30 - Free time to discuss, network, hack, etc.

It's always a great event, hope to see you there!
