Chicago HTML5 shares emerging web technologies through presentations on real world implementations and live tutorials on websites, and application building. We also host roundtables and speaker presentations on various topics such as new web standards, frameworks, process and methodology.
Our aim as a group is to contribute toward building and maintaining a strong community of developers, designers and anyone who works with or is just curious about technology here in Chicago.
Join Mattie and Jeremy for a couple short talks and Q&A.
Jeremy will talk about create-react-app (CRA), a powerful solution for starting and shipping React-based web applications! This introductory talk will go over what CRA is, what it's great for and what it isn't, and how to get the most out of it for your projects.
Mattie will cover some of the basics of using moment.js to manipulate date and time objects, including template mixins, super fancy date formatting, time math and other useful stuff. You can see moment in action yourself over at https://momentjs.com/.
