  • Intro to Blitz.JS, a Fullstack React Framework w/Brandon "Blitz" Bayer

    Register in advance for this meetup via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZErdOipqj8oG9DY-vrkXSSV_IPddAGRYoz6

    Blitz is a batteries-included framework that's inspired by Ruby on Rails, is built on Next.js, and features a "Zero-API" data layer abstraction that eliminates the need for REST/GraphQL.

    “Zero-API” data layer lets you import server code directly into your React components instead of having to manually add API endpoints and do client-side fetching and caching. New Blitz apps come with all the boring stuff already set up for you! Like ESLint, Prettier, Jest, user sign up, log in, and password reset. Provides helpful defaults and conventions for things like routing, file structure, and authentication while also being extremely flexible.

    This Tutorial is a full walkthrough through all the fundamental parts of Blitz, including adding models to your database and reading and updating data from your frontend.

    Get Started with Blitz: https://blitzjs.com/docs/get-started

    Prerequisites

    You need Node.js 12 or newer

    Install Blitz

    Run "npm install -g blitz or yarn global add blitz"

    About the Presenter:

    Brandon Bayer is the creator of Blitz.js and the founder of Flightcontrol. He's passionate about making fullstack development simple and fun. Outside of work he loves aviation, including flying real airplanes and RC helicopters.

    Are you curious about mobile development, but don't know where to start? Well look no further! This talk will walk you through the basics of Flutter, a great tool for building beautiful mobile applications. We'll begin by discussing the different approaches to mobile development and why Flutter is a great option. Then we'll go into the fundamentals of Flutter and its language, Dart. We'll look at the basic building blocks of a Flutter app: widgets! We'll see how they can be used to build complex UIs and manage application state. As we go through these concepts, we'll boost our understanding by building a basic Flutter application!

  • Getting Started with React and TypeScript w/Josh Goldberg

    TypeScript! What is it? Why does it exist? What does -or doesn't- it add to JavaScript? This introductory presentation will guide you through the why and how to use this exciting new language.

    We'll start with the fundamentals of "types" and a type checker, and show how they can surface problems in your code early on. We'll then expand that to showing how TypeScript gains a full understanding of the shapes of your objects and can help you in development with useful autocompletions and automated refactorings. TypeScript supports JSX and can correctly model the patterns used in React codebases.

    In this talk, we will revisit how React and TypeScript work together. By using them together, we essentially build our UIs using a typed version of JavaScript and our guest speakers from Code Academy will walk us through some common use cases for React with TypeScript.

    About the Presenter:

    Josh Goldberg is a staff engineer on the Web Platform team at Codecademy, where he focuses on shared static analysis, building, testing, and accessibility tooling. Outside of work he contributes to TypeScript and other open source projects in its ecosystem, and is writing a Beginning TypeScript book for O'Reilly. He's passionate about open source and bringing accessible education to the masses in a sustainable way.
