• Exchange.js Edmonton's JavaScript Meetup

    Online event

    Exchange.js is an open community of local developers and designers, who meet monthly to discuss a wide range of topics within the JavaScript ecosystem. It’s September! Which means an entire new year of wonderful Javascript talks, starting off with a bang! We’ve got the following topics locked and loaded for bear this month: Practical Typescript for the Practical Developer - Ian Phillipchuk (He/Him) Strong Typing is good in Javascript. No really, put me down and extinguish those torches and let me explain. While in a perfect world we are all wonderfully communicative and empathic programmers, who code as if our parents will be maintaining code, in reality we all have our foibles and fighting over state or typings is one of them. Typescript can remove the ambiguity and really supercharge your development in Javascript. Plus, (spoilers), its a superset so you can type as much or as little as your team desires! A Developer’s Adventures in Entrepreneurship - Mack Male (He/Him) I started my first company in high school and experienced some of the highs of the dotcom boom - and the crash. My second startup was probably a decade too early, and led to how I spent that decade working for a software company, rising from developer up to manager of the worldwide product development team. I'm now a full-time entrepreneur again, working on a new startup. I'll share some of the lessons learned along the way and hopefully offer some inspiration and motivation. Dockerize Your Dev With VS Code (in 10 minutes!) - Mark Bennett Do you ever get frustrated with the many tools, libraries and language versions you need to install on your development machine? As a contractor who works with many different clients, I know I do! What about when you're working in a team and want to make sure everyone is developing with the environment? In this quick demo I'll use the new Visual Studio Code Remote Development Tools to spin up a docker container that you can use to quickly isolate and standardize your development environment. Even better, this container integrates with the VS Code tools and addons you're likely already using! The meetup is sponsored by our community champions Jobber, Dotdash and Punchcard, and produced each month by the Edmonton JavaScript community. As we move into a new year, we’re looking for new commitments from our old sponsors and new sponsors that want to help grow the community, so if you’re interested please get in touch! For more information, join us on the Dev Edmonton Slack at https://exchangejs.com/slack, and visit exchangejs.com (http://www.exchangejs.com/).

  • Open Hardware Meetup

    Startup Edmonton HQ

    What is Open Hardware? The Open Hardware Meetup is a place where all kinds of people can share an interest in the intersection of hardware, software, connectivity, and user experience. When combined, these elements create a new art which blends the lines of beauty and technology. Even as computing devices have become more powerful, the underlying technology is now more and more available for everyone. With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form. Who is it for? Everyone is welcome, from casual observers to nascent hobbyists to advanced techs. Presentations will range from beginner how tos, to highlighting cool projects from Edmonton and Alberta. There is almost always food before and drinks after. We’re always open to new speakers and topics as requested by our members. Examples of things we’ve done -learn to solder, -basics of arduino, -automated basketball robots from a local high school team -projected surfaces and their use in theatre set design, -magnetic computer displays for the visually impaired Examples of things we want to do -lighting, home automation, wearables, drones/navigation, 3D printing, arduino, raspberry Pi, beaglebone and other open hardware platforms. -workshops, -build days, similar to hackathon, where a group of people with varying skills create and finish projects -specialty sub-clusters where people can specialize in wearables, lighting and home automation, maker technology, and drones We welcome you to Open Hardware Meetup and together we’ll create wow.
