"Mindfulness for Go-Getters"

We in tech tend to be ambitious achievers. Having said that, working in tech can be quite chaotic and stressful. Mindfulness is the bridge that can connect us to the gift of presence and help us continue with positive momentum and energy.

We'll initially walk through the difference between meditation and mindfulness. Lida will identify some meditation styles that have (not) worked for her, and would work for you. She'll also help you design a personal, effective, and ideally regular meditation routine.

"React-ivate your AngularJS App - One Component at a Time"

Angular and React are both great. Angular provides a defined structure of MVC while React provides a lightweight rendering mechanism. Often times, an application will have legacy code in AngularJS but teams will want to build new features in ReactJS. In this talk, we will use an AngularJS legacy application and develop new features in ReactJS, one component at a time.
