What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Exchange.js is an open community of local developers and designers, and we're hosting some casual events over the summer so we can stay in touch. There won't be any talks or presentations as we'd like to keep these open to the entire tech community. Please bring a friend or co-worker and come join us to meet new people, hack on stuff, or just play some board games. The Hexagon Cafe has been very accommodating for letting us take over part of their space so as a thank you we encourage you to purchase a drink or some food while you're there. When you arrive, tell the staff by the till you're with the Exchange.js group and they'll set you up with your own tab. For more information, join us on the Dev Edmonton Slack at https://exchangejs.com/slack, and visit exchangejs.com (http://www.exchangejs.com/).

Hey everyone, come on out to Startup Edmonton on Thursday July 25 for another ELUG meetup meeting! Manuel will talk about file synchronization and backups with the rsync utility: "As data becomes more and more important in our lives be it on your phone or your computer we can afford less and less to loose any of that data. To avoid that you have to create backups and keep them safe. Over are the times in which you burnt a CD or DVD and that was it. Today in the era of cloud and cheap storage you can choose where and how you want these backups. In the presentation we will go over the tool "rsync" and we will explore its functionalities. We will cover the following topics - Basic functionality of rsync - backing up your data onto an external drive (cloud solution can be used as well but that is out of scope of this presentation) - creating incremental backups - what are these "hard links" I heard about?" See you all there!
The tools available for software developers are constantly moving forward. Whether they're editors, IDE's, containers or VMs, CI tools, workflow tools, version management, or other, the ecosystem of tools available to help you become more effective and productive continues to growth and become more complex. DevTools is a language/technology agnostic meetup encouraging developers and designers from across disciplines to come together to share the latest tools they've discovered that help them to do their job every day. The format will be a "micro-meetup", featuring[masked] minute talks starting at 5:30 pm, so you can drop in for some inspiration for 30 min after work, but keep the rest of your evening available.
