Lunch – Wed. March 15, 2017 – Angular AOT / production build tooling options

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at noon.

Topic:

Kyle will give an overview (and perhaps deep dive) into some of the production build tooling options for Angular 2/4+ with AOT. Angular CLI, with Webpack 2 inside. Ngc. Rollup. FESM, ES2015 FESM. Babel. Buble. Google Closure Compiler, now offered on both Java and JavaScript runtimes. Lots of discussion of trade-offs.

This will probably be an unusually deep technical topic, but we made as accessible as possible, to fit in the short time and be useful to those who are not deeply interested in JavaScript bundling.

Topic:

Paul will talk about the “smart/view component pattern”. Paul works on projects which use this pattern extensively, and can address the real-world benefits and trade-offs. After the talk in Q&A, conversation may also wander to the (unrelated, but much mentioned) new Angular version numbering plan.

Lunch – Wed. Nov. 16, 2016 – Live coding a streaming data application

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, November 16, 2016, at noon.

Topic:

No one volunteered a traditional formal talk, so we’re going to try something totally different this month. Over the course of ~40 minutes, Kyle will “live code” a tiny example application to fill in a whole in the Angular Boot Camp curriculum. With help from any helpers or hecklers in the room, hopefully a working example program will come together which illustrates the key bits needed to implement streaming/push dataflow from “the cloud” (a server somewhere…) into an Angular application. Anything could happen.

Speaker:

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, October 19 2016, at noon.

Once your application becomes nontrivial, managing state and change occupies much of your attention as a developer. Kyle will briefly step through the stages of state management design which the Oasis Digital team went through, and explain where and why they now recommend most applications use a Redux-like strategy.

Speaker:

The next St. Louis Angular Lunch will be Wednesday September 21, 2016 at Noon

Topic:

If you are working on an Angular 1 project how do you position yourself to move to Angular 2?

With this module it makes it super simple to upgrade/downgrade parts of your applications to make the transition as smooth as possible!
