Lunch – Wed. Sep 21 2016 – A1 to A2

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? In this talk, we will cover some best practices and code style for your Angular 1 applications as well as the Angular 2 Upgrade Module. With this module it makes it super simple to upgrade/downgrade parts of your applications to make the transition as smooth as possible!

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, June 15 2016, at noon.

Topic:

Things are a bit quiet right now on the Angular 2 front, as we all await the next Release Candidate, with major important changes. This month for the Angular lunch we will simply have casual roundtable discussion of what is going on in the Angular 2 world.

Speaker:

Some of us who keep up with the progress (such as the exciting “new new new router”) can kick off discussion, but generally this is just an open time to talk and eat together.

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, April 20 2016, at noon.

Lunch – Wed. Feb 17, 2016 – Rx/Observables in Angular 2

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, Feb. 17 2016, at noon.

Topic:

Observables have a big role to play in Angular 2 – they are used “in the box” widely, work with the “async” pipe, and can considerable improve the code for common development scenarios. Observables are likely to be the most common way data is exposed from a service layer to a UI layer in Angular 2.

Lunch – Wed. Jan 20, 2016 – Angular 2 Live

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, Jan. 20 2016, at noon.

Topic:

This month, going to try something different. Using the latest Angular 2 beta (beta 1, as of a few days before the lunch), Kyle (and perhaps others from Oasis Digital) will answer questions about Angular 2, with words or code, and also put our Angular 2 curriculum to the test by using it in the answers.

So, bring your Angular 2 questions. No promises of having all the answers, but there should be plenty to make it worthwhile.

Speaker:

Kyle Cordes, of Oasis Digital

Weather note: as of a few days before the launch, the forecast predicts 3 to 5 inches of snow Tuesday night. If this occurs, we will take a quick email poll Wednesday morning to make sure we don’t over-order the pizza.

Lunch – Wed. Nov 18, 2015 – React from an Angular point of view

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015, at noon.

Topic:

Continuing our theme from last month of exploring the world around angular, this month talk will be “React, from an Angular Point of View”. Mark has used both professionally, and can help us understand the differences in trade-offs with the React approach. This should be much more useful than yet another React introduction no Angular reference point.

With any luck, this might be the last Lunch before the Angular 2 beta – so it seems like the right time to fit in this kind of topic.

Lunch – Wed. Oct 21, 2015 – Aurelia Intro and Comparison

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, October 21, 2015, at noon.

Topic:

We are all huge fans of Angular here, looking forward to Angular 2. But it is important to keep an eye on other libraries and platforms. This month, we will briefly see the most obvious comparison point for Angular 2, Aurelia. Aurelia doesn’t have a giant company behind it like Angular, but it does have similar ideas differently implemented. At Oasis Digital, we have found that comparing with Aurelia helps us understand the problem space better, which is valuable regardless of which tool you use.

Extra bonus nerdery!

The main talk above will wrap up in time for attendees to leave by 1 PM; but if you are able to stay longer, please stick around for an extra bonus talk or two from someone at Oasis Digital. Since we already have the room, video, etc. set up, we will be experimentally trying out another talk topic or two. The topics are to be determined, but will likely relate to JavaScript and/or Angular in some way.

Lunch – Wed. Sep 16, 2015 – Unit-testing Angular Applications

The next St. Louis Angular lunch will be Wednesday, Sep. 16, 2015, at noon.

Topic:

Angular was designed from the start to be amenable to automated unit testing, but many Angular developers don’t make much use of it yet. In this talk, Mark will reintroduce unit testing of Angular applications using the Karma test runner, then explain and demonstrate the differences between the most commonly used tools, Jasmine versus Mocha with Chai and Sinon. It should be a great talk, with information of value to both Angular beginners and experienced experts.
