  • Building React UIs Visually w/ Yang Zhang

    Online event

    Register in advance for this meetup via Zoom: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEldeysrjMvH9wXbKOUF3NVzvGU4hIlyVw7 After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Design tools are fast and amazing tools for thought, but for a host of reasons are limited to creating drawings rather than production assets. Engineers must instead re-create surfaces from scratch, by hand, using code. This inevitably leads to discrepancies and back-and-forth with the design team, and ultimately two sources of truth that are never truly in sync. Plasmic is a tool to build UIs visually, currently in heavy development. It loosely resembles a design tool and aims to give the same sense of speedy iteration, but is for building maintainable, production-ready presentational components. The idea is to give developers a better and faster development experience, eliminate an entire class of visual bugs/QA/tooling, and ultimately maintain a single source of truth with design. About the Speaker: Yang Zhang had an early career in distributed database systems and machine learning, but discovered a passion in creating tools that directly touch and empower users. His time with React and JS has seen him build things from complex spreadsheet software to massively multiplayer real-time browser games. He is now building Plasmic full time. ____________ This ONLINE event is hosted by Farmers Insurance Group, an American insurer group of automobiles, homes and small businesses and also provides other insurance and financial services products.

  • Build a data visualization project with no servers in 2 hours w/Nim Grinvald

    Register in advance for this meeting: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcqce2vqz4jH90CHxS8MdCoUI0Zpb0urFXi After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This workshop is aimed at JavaScript developers who want to spend less time building out the back-end of their projects, and concentrate more on the front-end. The workshop contents will walk through how to: - get a free Kintone environment (developer license) where developers can work on their projects - build out the database of the Kintone platform using GUI - add data via GUI - apply client-side JavaScript code to Kintone to visualize the database data in different formats - use Kintone's REST API initiator to call REST APIs from client-side JavaScript The workshop requires attendees to have: - basic knowledge on client-side JavaScript - some experience using REST API (preferable, but not a must) On the other hand, this workshop does not need attendees to have knowledge (or have any environments ready) on the following topics: Nodejs, AWS, Azure, React, AngularJS Workshop Details Starting up servers and constructing databases are bothersome tasks for your project, when you just want to concentrate on utilizing your JavaScript skills. In this workshop, we will guide you through on how to set up back-end components for your projects using the GUI of the Kintone platform. We will then proceed to visualize your data stored in the Kintone databases with client-side JavaScript, and also introduce how to use Kintone's REST API initiator to call REST APIs of other interesting projects. Attendees will walk away with a 1 year free Kintone Developer License, with projects that they can work further on to fully utilize their JavaScript skills. About the Speaker Nim Grinvald is a technical evangelist at Kintone who has been coding in JavaScript for 3 years. Just as important, he has a killer hummus recipe and can make his own natto (Japanese fermented soybeans). Github: https://github.com/theredspoon What is Kintone Kintone is a cloud platform for teams with a visual application builder that enables organizations to effectively manage their data and workflows for better collaboration. On the frontend, JavaScript, CSS, and/or HTML can be added to further enhance the UI/UX of the Kintone Databases. Visit our developer website to get acquainted with the Kintone API: https://developer.kintone.io/ This meet will be hosted via Zoom and is scheduled for Thursday 06/18 at 7pm PST. ------ Stuck at Home?

  • The State of JavaScript Modules in 2020 w/Mejin Leechor

    Register in advance for this meeting: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIuduispjMiG9L-j4yLbDXaTJSEiykc5cvk After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. How the Modules in JavaScript were in the Past and what we use now. In JavaScript, the word "modules" refers to small units of independent, reusable code. They are the foundation of many JavaScript design patterns and are critically necessary when building any non-trivial JavaScript-based application. One or more related modules may be organized into a JavaScript package. About the Presenter: Mejin Leechor is a software developer and consultant for VMware Pivotal Labs, where she works with enterprise clients to build modern apps for the web. She works on teams that practice extreme programming (XP), agile software development, and experimentation. She views software development as a human endeavor and strives to write code that is simple, expressive, and trustworthy. Aside from programming, her stay-at-home activities include vegetarian cooking and yoga classes on Zoom. ------ This ONLINE event is hosted by Farmers Insurance Group, an American insurer group of automobiles, homes and small businesses and also provides other insurance and financial services products.

It appears in almost all modern frameworks including React, Angular and Vue. This syntax, while new and exciting to use, still confuses many developers, especially developers old and new. In this meetup, we will preview common syntax including variables, scope, function declarations, arrow functions, as well as more advanced concepts like promises, generators, and JavaScript module export/import. We’ll also look at code samples including React, TypeScript, Angular and work together to decipher common patterns. Finally, for those a little more advanced, we’ll talk about how to integrate Babel with a working environment like Webpack so you can try out the latest ES2020 syntax, should you want to play around with some of the most cutting edge JavaScript syntax available! Can’t make the meetup? No problem, Vijay will record and post the meetup lecture afterwards to Youtube.com/JavaScriptLA. Subscribe there to get all the past and most current videos from JavaScriptLA.
