Learn WebApp Development Together - Weekly Study Group!

WebApp-Builders WEEKLY Meetup:  L.A eastside (Glendale)

Fullstack WebApp Development:
Group Projects, New Technology Best Practices, Code Reviews.

We are a weekly study group, coming together to improve our skills as full-stack WebApp developers.  We work on project and have weekly talks to stay abreast of the latest trends and newest technologies. 

**Go to our groups website, to vote on web-development presentation topics that interest you. 
Come watch live or get the video recording after our Meetup.**



I'm particularly excited about this week: come learn to Build Desktop Apps using the web technologies you know (HTML, CSS, JS) using Electron!! (

For those of you who do not know, Electron is a framework that allows you to build Desktop Apps as easily as your WebApps and Mobile Apps.  In fact, it already powers some of the apps you are familiar with: Slack's desktop app, Google Play Music Desktop app, and the Atom Editor many of us use every day are build with Electron.

This week: Brett has been gracious enough to offer to live code, as we use Electron to build our own **browser.**  Should be a cool experiment to build the browser collaboratively with the designers of our group.

This Wednesday is our joined Viewport Meetup ( with our WebApp-Builders Meetup ( so we thought it would be a good week to to focus on the one screen we (as web developers) rarely have access to: the desktop.  Now, given technologies like Electron are coming around, should make it much easier to control our entire user's experience, with Web, Mobile and now Desktop.See you this Wednesday!
