At our May meetup, Ryan Vice is giving a presentation on ReactJs, a JS micro-framework for creating component based, high performance Web UIs. This example driven talk covers the basics and progresses to some of the bigger implications of incorporating ReactJs like moving away from the MV* architectures and towards the Flux architecture.

About The Speaker:

Ryan is the Founder and Chief Architect of Vice Software which specializes in tailored solutions for clients whether they are looking to get their MVP to market or modernize existing applications. On top of offering more competitive prices across the board, Vice Software offers skill based pricing which means you only pay architect rates when needed and pay much lower production rates for simpler feature work.

Matt Wear is back to talk about writing Android Apps in Kotlin. Last time Matt spoke he showed us how to build an Android Wear app that called his mom (literally, her phone number was included in the sample code). Now he's coming to talk about Kotlin. This will be fun.

Description from the speaker:

"A few months ago I started a rewrite project for a client, and they agreed to let me use Kotlin despite the fact I had never written anything substantial in the language prior. I thought it would be fun to learn something new, but was surprised by how much more productive this new tool made me. In this talk you will learn about Kotlin, my experience writing a real production app in it, and why you should give it serious consideration.

Kotlin is a language developed by JetBrains for the JVM. It includes language features such as lambdas, data classes, extension methods and null safety, that will make even the best developer write more accurate, easier to read and maintain code. I plan to give everyone a working understanding of the syntax, features, risks and most importantly what I learned from building a production app in Kotlin."

This month Dane Macaulay discusses design patterns in large AngularJS apps to reduce complexity, improve maintainability, and enhance user interaction.

We will cover design patterns used in the framework and then explore ways to reuse code in the Model layer and in a more modular and reactive View layer.

Dane spent the first few years of his development career as a freelancer, then worked at Favish to build Scanther and other Drupal and Angular web apps. He now works with D&B to improve and maintain D&B360, an enterprise CRM integration application powered by AngularJS and Java.

Discuss your favorite topics from the Google I/O conference and hear other people's picks. Also experience the Android Wear watches and cardboard VR goggles given out to conference attendees. The sessions from I/O are published to YouTube but it takes a week or more to watch them. This is a good way to find out about sessions that are good for you.

We'll start with a short presentation on Polymer from Patti Cifra & Ashley Price followed by ad-hoc presentations/discussion from others. Contact me if there's something you'd like to share.
