Free coffee, pizza and a special guest. Heidelberg's 8th Angular meetup is coming. 🚀Join for two great talks 🗣️ "Tackling Component State Reactively" and "Storybook", community updates and networking 🤝. Our speakers and special guests are Michael Hladky who was recognised by Google as a Developer Expert (GDE) and Kai Röder who is an active member of our meetup.

#ngHeidelberg v8 - 1st SHORT TALK:
Kai Röder: The Benefits of a Design System: How Storybook Can Improve Your Daily Work

Component driven frameworks are all over the place. But how can we manage components in a maintainable and transparent way without losing track? At the end of this talk you should know more about isolated component development, design systems and Storybook itself.

The talk will be held in English.

#ngHeidelberg v8 - 2n LONG TALK:
Michael Hladky: Angular and RxJS – Tackling Component State Reactively

Ever heard about "ephemeral state"? Ngrx, ngxs, akita etc did a great job in managing global state in SPAs. However, nobody talked about the complexity and pain of managing the local component state. Based on a quote of "Gang of Four": "If you stick to the paradigms of OOP the design patterns appear naturally". I will solve isolates problems in a reactive way and the final design pattern for reactive component state results naturally.

If you attend this talk you will hear about:
- subscrption-less components
- local state management
- handling local side-effects

You will be able to write fully reactive components that will be well structured and organised without any effort.

The talk will be held in English.
