Rapid Prototyping Course

Code smarter (and faster). Catch design flaws quickly with rapid prototyping. This course will guide you through the iterative process of prototyping an app and conducting user research. Together with InVision we’ll guide you through creating interactive prototypes. This means you don’t have to code an app before putting it in front of users!

I've post the slides from last night's talk (TypeScript and Babel) here:
https://github.com/gdgnoco/TypeS...­
I'll follow up with the whole IDE after I organize it a bit.
Also, I'm going to submit my remark (the slides package) changes to its github repository (it did not work under IE).

I forgot to give links to the TypeScript and Babel sites:

It sounds like the CTA and the CO State IT Office want to listen to local community's tech concerns. If you're interested in tech at that level (state, drawing tech jobs to CO), seems like it'd be one place to gather together people of similar interest.

About this community

Welcome! This is a discussion area for the Google Developer Groups in Northern Colorado. We have meetings usually the first week of the month on topics ranging from Android to web apis and frameworks. We're hoping to have primarily GDG members from the area, but we welcome other surrounding GDGs and even far flung GDG members to participate!

The Google Developers feed has been highlighting new Udacity courses. Looks like a great way to keep up on new features. Has anyone had experience with these beyond the intro Android courses last year?

Passwords aren't enough anymore, and soon, they’ll be history. People and businesses are hacked through theft of login credentials everyday. It doesn't have to be that way. We developed Security Keys to help keep your information safe. 

To help get them in the hands of more people, Google Apps for Work customers now get them at half cost. And this week, we're giving away 100 Security Keys everyday to the first people to solve a puzzle. See ya tomorrow for puzzle #1.
