How to find us

We will be at NCSU's Avent Ferry complex. It looks like an abandoned hotel, on Avent Ferry Rd across from the Mission Valley cinema. The parking lot south of the building is free after 5. Walk to the front door - someone will let you in.

For May, we expect to get Mark Halpin to speak on NativeScript-Vue. I (Mitch) also plan to show how we're using ESLint for static accessibility checking of our Vue templates.

Mitch's Topic: Checking Vue Templates for A11Y with ESLint

Javascript is a weakly typed language, so ESLint was created to improve static analysis of code. We recently started using an accessibility rule set to help us improve the quality of our .vue file templates. This allows us to verify Aria roles and equivalent text content, before changes to components are checked in.

Mark's Topic: NativeScript "Zero to Hero"
(Details are still subject to change depending on Mark's schedule.)

Do you have a great idea for a mobile application, but don’t know Java or Swift? Do you want to develop an application as quickly as possible using the web skills you already have?

If you haven’t heard of NativeScript, then you are in for a treat. NativeScript is framework that allows you to build cross platform mobile apps using common web technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML that look, feel and perform like native applications. Not only can you use plain JavaScript, but you can also leverage the frameworks you already know to help build those native applications and integrate functionality such as location services, the camera, and push notifications. In this session, you will learn the basics of NativeScript and how to get started with Vue, as well as the tools you will need to start building and packaging native applications.
