The Long Beach Web & App Professionals (#WAPRO (https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=I%27m%20excited%20for%20the%20%23WAPRO%20meetup%20this%20month!%20meetup.com%2Funcoded%2Fevents%2F%20%40uncodedlb%20%23uncoded)) group meets monthly to share and learn about the technology that ignites our imagination, builds our skill-set, expands our network, and grows community!


The Pros that have worked on projects such as Spacex, Riot Games, X-prize, Adobe, Toyota Motor Sports, VMWare, UCLA, CSULB, AARP, and more ... have shared amazing talks since Jan 2015 on tech and projects such as Bootstrap (http://getbootstrap.com/), Bower (http://bower.io/), Browserfy (http://browserify.org/), Headless Drupal (https://github.com/davidhwang/horseman), iOS Swift (https://developer.apple.com/swift/), Jekyll (http://jekyllrb.com/), Meteor (https://www.meteor.com/), Node.js (http://iojs.org/), SASS (http://sass-lang.com/), Sculpin (http://sculpin.io/), Zapier (http://zapier.com/) and more.

Every month we come together to:

• Demo technologies we use, especially those driving the convergence of websites and mobile apps
• Showcase our projects built with cool tech
• Share industry "best practices"
• Newcomer Q&A's
• Network, get to know each other, and otherwise have fun

We have a preference for open-source software, especially server-side. Our meetups are focused on the life-cycle and technologies related to website and application development. We will especially try to delve into situations where mobile and web technologies converge. The meeting topics we cover will vary monthly and will be tailored to, and by, our community. Want to see something? Let us know by tweeting @waprolb or using the hash #WAPRO.

Future meetups: 🌷 4/5 🌤 5/3 ⛵ 6/7 🌊

PRESENTATION: Creating happiness on that bridge between Web Designers and Web Developers

The old waterfall workflow to create a website from scratch has yet to evolve. The amount of pain points that a creative team must tackle has increased significantly due to the rise of mobile devices. In this talk, we’ll discuss these pain points, the root cause of them, and how we as a web design and development community can work together to fix it.

PRESENTATION: Stair stepping ES6 and TypeScript into an Angular App

Read the source of your favorite libraries and you may get lost. JavaScript illuminati and tutorial authors are talking another language now. You need to catch up while it’s easy. We’ll cover Webpack, the most useful syntactic sugar from ES6/TS, and refactor a ‘real’ Angular app.

PRESENTATION: Two men’s goal to create a monolithic application but…

…it turns out its harder todo these days. Aaron Pedersen will provide a deep dive and detail the ecosystem of his software, Pedanco. Pedanco is a Guest Feedback and Recovery platform for the hospitality industry. Built using Rails and Heroku, the software’s ecosystem has expanded over it’s 4 years of development to include many services and technologies, making it less like a monolithic application, and more robust and distributed. Service and technology including Postgres, ElasticSearch, NewRelic, Postmark and many more.
