Angular Portland March: AOT, TDD, & NativeScript!

926 NW 13th Ave #200
Portland, OR 97209, us (map)

2nd floor!



We've got three awesome 15 minute talks for you this month!

Venue and Food
This month we're hosted by the fantastic folks at Vacasa, and food this month is brought to you by Apex Systems!

Our Talks
Setting Up AOT with ngUpgrade: We all love the CLI, but in an ngUpgrade project, you can't always use it. Yet we need to be able to take both Angular and AngularJS to production. That means we need to be able to set up our Angular project and our Webpack build to use Angular's AOT compiler. In this talk, Sam Julien will show you how to do it and what pitfalls to avoid.

_(ツ)_/¯ Works on my machine: a practical approach to TDD: How do you know if your code works? common stigma: [“You should writes tests", "If you don't write tests from the start, you'll never get around to it”, “I never have time to write tests”]. Nathan Brenner is here to show you how he got around these hurdles.

Say Bye Bye to Hybrid apps, and Hello to NativeScript: Ever wanted to develop native mobile apps but couldn’t find the time to learn new languages? Or, you tried hybrid app development but were not happy with the performance? NativeScript is here to offer you the best of hybrid and native development workflow. With NativeScript, you are already a Mobile app developer! You will get a development experience which is similar to the web, while still getting a native mobile app as the end result. AND you can get to market up to 5x faster than a native approach, with no compromise to performance. Shiva Prasad joins us remotely all the way from India for this exciting talk!
