"Learning JavaScript and Staying Marketable" with ngAnimate Lightning Talk

Kent C. Dodds is going to be giving a talk at ng-nebraksa this month about not just being a better Angular developer, but a better Javascript developer. 

Angular is amazing and has contributed to a major change in the landscape of frontend web development forever. But frameworks come and go. Even though Angular 1.x will still be around for a few years, it will eventually be totally antiquated and you'll need to show off other kinds of skills to attract employers. What if there were a way that you could learn skills you need to both be effective Angular developers today and develop skills that will make you marketable for many more years to come? Spoiler, I'm talking about JavaScript. Let's go over why that's important and a few ways to accomplish this.

Jacob Parish will be giving a lightning talk on ngAnimate.

ngAnimate is an Angular module that provides support for CSS and Javascript animations. It's incredibly easy to use and allows us to add animations to any application quickly, even without advanced animation skills. We will look at the framework from a high level and animate a simple application.

Andrew Neely is going to give a quick demo of the upcoming Nodeschool event he's hosting at OPI on Jan 30.

The promise of the open web is the democratization of technology. Andrew Neely will give a lightning talk about an upcoming event to be hosted at the OPI offices in January to teach JavaScript skills to students of all backgrounds, from novice to professional web developers, using the open source curriculum from Nodeschool.

Meet us for food & beverages at 6pm before we get started with the talks at 6:30pm.

As always, were looking for people to share their Angular knowledge or show off cool projects they've built.  If you have anything you'd like to share or talk about (no matter how big or small), let us know!
