Let's join New England Software Engineers (aka #NESE) for a night of coding, good food, summer cocktails, networking and panel discussion at the General Assembly campus in Boston!!!!

Panel, Mobile Development
Take part in an interactive panel discussing about the state of mobile development across platforms and technologies! The panelist list is still opened (shoot an e-mail if you want to be one of them) will include Brian Rinaldi (Telerik), Jen Looper, Morris Singer (Verilume Inc.), Mike Hartington (Developer Advocate at, Philip Sidell (Cengage Learning), Giorgio Natili (McGraw Hill Education), etc.

Lab, NativeScript
What is NativeScript? It is a new, open source platform, created by Telerik, that lets you build true native apps using languages you already know - JavaScript, CSS, and XML. Join Jen and Brian of the Telerik Developer Relations team as we celebrate the Summer of NativeScript with back-to-back hands-on labs and extra special custom cocktails in between. We’ll work right in a browser - no "install-fest" required - to build an app.

In the first part of the workshop, we’ll learn the basics of building a NativeScript app and deploying to devices. After a short break and cocktails, we'll jump right into the second lab, where we will learning about building page navigation and layout, UI controls and how to manage them, and working with modules. By the end of the evening you’ll feel that happy buzz (not just from the drinks) from learning about NativeScript!

Come for the tacos, stay for the code lab! In addition to the NativeScript festivities, we will be featuring a taco bar from Anna's (examples: - pairing perfectly with app building and drinks :)
