Angular + Typescript, CRUD and Deploying to Firebase w/Vijay Menon

Hi all! Ready for the next meetup? Sure you are! Please RSVP with Eventbrite to be on the guestlist: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/angular-typescript-crud-and-deploying-to-firebase-wvijay-menon-tickets-68301211763 In this meetup, we are going to explore into the world of Angular and how we can use the framework to speed up our web development. We will go over tooling, including using the command line to build components, view template files, stylesheets, walk you thru TypeScript syntax, building CRUD functionality, discussion of best practices and deploying to Firebase (time permit). This course will be slightly advanced, so if you are newer to JavaScript / web development, you may want to brush up on your syntax before joining in. Angular (also known as AngularJS) has gone through 8 iterations since its inception. While the constant breaking and retooling of the framework has offput some developers, Angular in its current form is even bigger and better than ever. If you've been putting off learning it, now's the right time to come back and check it out. About the Presenter: Vijay Menon is one of the main organizers for JavaScriptLA, has been doing web development for over 8 years, and is skilled in many languages including PHP, Python, Ruby and JavaScript.

Using Typescript when Creating a React App w/ Madalyn Baehre

Hey JavaScriptLA fans, our next meetup is upon us. Please RSVP with eventbrite to be included in the headcount: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/using-typescript-when-creating-a-react-app-w-madalyn-baehre-tickets-68866019117 While many web developers associate Typescript with Angular, it’s certainly not the only Javascript framework that can benefit from all that Typescript has to offer. In this talk, we’ll focus on how it can be used to enhance the developer experience when creating a React app. First we’ll give a general overview of Typescript and show the scalability and tooling it can provide to any application. Then we’ll give steps to set it up in a new or existing React app and provide some helpful examples for how to integrate types into components and with Redux. This talk will assume some familiarity with React/ Redux as explanations will center around how to integrate Typescript rather than React itself. About the Presenter: Madalyn Baehre abandoned her chemical engineering degree last summer after attending Codesmith bootcamp to learn software engineering skills. Since Codesmith, she's worked at Aon Cyber Solutions as a web developer. There, Madalyn led the integration of Typescript with a React app, set up a GraphQL API testing framework, and most recently took on the task of internationalizing the frontend of one of their Angular apps.

Real-Time Maps with JavaScript, Raspberry Pi, and HERE XYZ w/Nic Raboy

Please RSVP through Eventbrite to be on the guestlist: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/real-time-maps-with-javascript-raspberry-pi-and-here-xyz-wnic-raboy-tickets-68183144621 Hi JavaScriptLA fans. Hope you enjoyed the livestream we did with Nic. Hope you'll find time to watch it and come prepared as we are going to be diving a step deeper. The Raspberry Pi is a powerful, yet portable, computer that is compatible with many hardware modules, making it a desirable Internet of Things (IoT) device. Pair it with JavaScript and Node.js and you have powerful applications on a very capable device. HERE XYZ is a cloud-based data management service for location data, making it a powerful tool when combined with many IoT projects. In this session, we'll explore how to collect GPS data with a Raspberry Pi and Node.js, then display it in real-time as the data is collected, on an interactive map using HERE XYZ. Be sure to enroll for the HERE Developer Portal which will be used during the Meetup. http://developer.here.com/events/JSLAM About the Presenter: Nic Raboy is an advocate of modern web and mobile development technologies. He has experience in Java, JavaScript, Golang and a variety of frameworks such as Angular, NativeScript, and Apache Cordova.
