• GraphQL Workshop with Lawjolla
    Dennis Walsh (aka Lawjolla) will be guiding us through GraphQL, which is described as "A query language for your API." This will not only include GraphQL itself but several services working together to give you a complete data API. If you are interested at all in data APIs, this is the workshop for you. Please note that we can no longer provide snacks or drinks, so bring some water or a canteen (water fountains are close to the room) if needed. Other than that bring your curiosity and love of code!

  • Vue.js with Richard
    Richard will break out his latest project, Botington, and talk about his journey with Vue.js. He will cover what it is, how it works, and his experience thus far. It should be, at the very least, a fun conversation about the hottest new library/framework. Please note that we can no longer provide snacks or drinks, so bring some water or a canteen (water fountains are close to the room) if needed. Other than that bring your curiosity and love of code!

  • Updates and Hack Night!
    A lot has been happening behind the scenes here at Web Stackers (good things). As you can see we have a new venue, but we also have a bunch more updates to share. We figured the best format would be to pass along all the updates, then just do some social hacking. We can't wait to see everyone!

  • Serverless Infrastructure Workshop
    This workshop will walk you through the creation of a “serverless” API using AWS Lambda, API Gateway and other services! Bring your laptop and be sure to set up an AWS account (https://aws.amazon.com/free/) (requires a credit or debit card) beforehand to reduce the amount of time it will take to get started. Don’t worry though, all the resources created in the workshop fall will fall under the AWS Free Tier. Beer and non-alchoholic drinks will be provided by us! Want to present or lead a workshop at an upcoming Web Stackers meetup? Let Richard or Eric know during a meetup or send us a message via the organizer’s contact button. If you need an idea for a topic, we can help with that too! Getting to the meetup by car: Connect is right in downtown Tucson, so if you are not biking, taking the bus, streetcar, or dirigible you are probably coming by automobile. Downtown street parking in metered spots is free after 5pm, but may be limited. (Should you find a spot on the street, please be careful not to block the streetcar!) Your best bet may be the Depot Plaza Garage (45 N 5th Ave). Check out the city’s parking guide (https://www.tucsonaz.gov/park-tucson/where-can-i-park-downtown) for more info.

  • Lightning Talks! (The First Web Stackers Meetup!)
    Eric will kick things off with a quick talk on a totally not divisive topic: “Are Semi-Colons in JavaScript Useful?” Richard plans to follow that up with some insights into JavaScript's type system, which we are told is very interesting. Afterwards, everyone who is interested to can give their own quick presentation (about 5 minutes or so) related to web development, show off their latest web project, or even just kick off a discussion about a web development question or problem you might be facing. It’s all good! Beer and non-alchoholic drinks will be provided by us! Want to present or lead a workshop at an upcoming Web Stackers meetup?

  • Let’s Learn Lore!
    Do you wanna build apps with React, but find the learning curve of the ecosystem intimidating or exhausting? Or maybe you already use React & Redux, but you are looking for patterns to reduce the boilerplate in your own apps? If so, Jason Hansen’s Lore framework is for you! Lore is a convention-driven framework for React that is built on Redux, React-Router and Webpack. Fundamentally, Lore doesn’t introduce anything new; if you understand Redux, then you understand how Lore works. So it’s not “another new thing” in that sense. But what Lore does do is integrate support for many of the application needs we’re often left to solve for on our own; things like pagination, filtering, optimistic updates, AJAX communication and WebSockets to name a few. Jason himself will lead this workshop, focused on building a mini-version of Twitter. He’ll start off with a quick talk and demo, and then let everyone loose on his amazing online workshop, and will be available for questions and discussion! Note that while it’s recommended that you have a basic understanding of React prior to attending, if you can comfortably follow the tutorial on the React website (https://facebook.github.io/react/docs/tutorial.html) that should be sufficient!
