- Overall packed night with variety of topics for every level
- Updates from what's being added to latest versions of Angular 2 (now approaching 2.3), Angular CLI (heard about the new hot module reload support?), RxJS (where's my cache operator?), and TypeScript (now approaching 2.1)

-- Wrapping UI Elements in Angular 2 Components (by Evan Wallace)

UI frameworks are still in a state of flux, wrapping UI elements in Angular 2 components is a quick and useful way to prototype, test and rapidly iterate designs.

This talk is targeted at mid to advanced angular 2 users. This talk will also benefit people working on large enterprise solutions.

-- Frontend Tests: what nobody said to you (by Will Mendes, GDE)

Do you have an application with good code coverage, but with lots of bugs or with no good code coverage at all? How to start and validate if you are adding to a good test? What about performance in tests?

In this talk Will shares my experience and decisions about improvements in our test pyramid case, talking about how we changed the codebase with coupled tests, hard to setup / maintain / evolve and how some standards, validations and more that makes our team deliver more valuable features.

-- Bootstrap dashboard adaptation to angular 2 (by Rodrigo)

Rodrigo provides a quick overview on how to adapt an html/bootstrap dashboard them to angular 2 - retro-fitted with angular heroes quick start tutorial.

-- Open Talk: What's new in Angular, CLI, RxJS, and TypeScript (by Meligy and Everyone)

By nature, open talk sessions are usually driven by the audience. You bring up the topics you want to talk about. We also always have a default topic to get the conversation started.

With Angular approaching 2.3.0, and the CLI bringing a lot of goodness, RxJS RC versions finally being included in officially supported Angular versions, and crazy stuff coming to TypeScript 2.1, we have more than enough topics to talk about in an already packed night!


Don't shy away from bringing what on the surface looks like a small question as well. It might be loaded more than you think!

You can send a question directly to the host (Meligy), have it ready as a JSFiddle/JSBin/Plunker URL ready to type, and/or just drop the question in comments, on this very meetup event page.
