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.

Udacity Courses: Beginner Android

I was looking over the Android Developer Nanodegree requirements  ( https://www.udacity.com/course/android-developer-nanodegree--nd801) in hopes of starting an informal get-together for people that wanted to take some of the Udacity Android courses and noticed a "beginners" prerequisite course. Seems like this would be a nice soft intro to the terminology and basic concepts.

Unfortunately, it looks like not all the content's there yet. Has anyone gone through this and found it useful - or useful as an intro for others?

I'm amazed that there are so many alternatives to React already.
I'm amused that he hadn't found riot.js when he wrote the article.
Several people pointed it out in comments.

A new way of making cross-platform phone and tablet apps.
It is likely to perform better than hybrid apps as the UI is fully native. You JavaScript code is used as glue to native APIs.
 
I just discovered this. It was started by Telerik, but is fully open source (Apache 2.0). It went version 1.0 on May 8th.
Highlights:
"Code with JavaScript. Style with CSS"
"Create a true native user experience"
"100% Access to Native Platform API"
Currently Android and iOS, but Windows Universal is in progress.
The app itself remains in JavaScript (with autogenerated wrappers to access native APIs). The UI however is very much native.

This is an interesting new JS transpiler:

"Spider is a programming language that compiles to JavaScript (ES5 and ES6 targets). It takes the best ideas of Go, Swift, Python, C# and CoffeeScript."

Sadly, doesn't have types (which means no user defined operators).
Otherwise it is quite nice.
Spider is a programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It's just JavaScript, but better.

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!

This is a really good list of JavaScript frameworks (it also has a link to CSS frameworks).
The scariest part to me is that I've looked at over half of them.

#io15  summary
 
A good overview of what went on with #Android at #io15 .
As nothing much outside of Android happened at #io15, you get pretty much the entire conference in this article.
Google I/O 2015 has come and gone, and as expected, left us with a ton of exciting new features, announcements and products, from the entirety of the Googleplex, including Android, Chrome, Search and ATAP. There is a lot of information from this years conference, and we have sifted through this information avalanche, and filtered out the most important stuff for Android Developers. We will dive deeper into many of these technologies in the com...
