You can check it out at https://github.com/geoloqi/Terraformer

We'll also get cracking on what direction we'd like to take the group!

ReactJS user group drinkup
Ex Novo Brewing Company

Hello Reagents!

We are having another casual/drinkup meeting to prepare for our first official meetup(s) in Jan/Feb. To keep the conversation focused we're trying to limit the attendance to about 20 people, so please RSVP here.

We will be discussing what our plans are for the initial meetings starting early 2015. Please bring your thoughts with you. If you can't make it, or would like to get the discussion started now, please use the comment/conversation on the meetup page.

Thanks, look forward to seeing you next month!

Portland ReactJS meetup
Idealist.org

Greetings fellow Reagents!

We are looking forward to our first official ReactJS user group. Dave and Eric from Idealist.org will be sharing some interesting stuff (details below) with us, and we're hoping to have one additional talk. Please let us know if you're interested in speaking/presenting. We'd like to have at least a few lightning talks as well. I have a feeling this will fill up fast, so please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

If you are new to our group, Welcome! If you would like to get more involved or hear what we're talking about, we'd like to invite you to join our google group to join the conversations or start a new one. Also, please take a look at our code of conduct which let's you know what we think "being excellent to each other" should look and feel like.

Talks:

Notes on the Design of Components (Dave McCabe)

Dave will discuss what idealist.org has learned about designing React components, specifically techniques for promoting simplicity, reuse, statelessness, and separation of concerns, and for dealing with asynchrony.

Isomorphic Webpack Hot Module Replacement Boilerplate (Eric O'Connell)

  • Do you want to serve fully-rendered HTML from your React application?
  • Do you want near-instant feedback in your browser as soon as you edit your React components?
  • How about CSS?

This talk will give the starting point for a very nice dev environment using the webpack Hot Module Replacement feature. It will include a (trivial) Express app that renders the entire React component hierarchy which will then be hydrated on the client. Variations shown will include serving API requests out of the same app, and shared client/server routing.

TBD / Lightning talks

Get in touch with us if you'd like to share your experiences!

Our team will be in Portland and we'd love to meet you all in person. So don’t be shy--come say hi!

The event will be focused on providing many opportunities to meet and greet the Google Cloud DAs and talk to them face-to-face in a social atmosphere.

We will offer "topic tables" where people can just meet and discuss topics of interest to them.

Tentative topics (feel free to email and suggest your own!): - Google App Engine - Google Compute Engine - Google Cloud for Go - Google Cloud for Node.js - Google Cloud for Python - Google Cloud for Java - Cloud Mobile - Big Data - Docker and Containers

And we will have hors d'ouvres and refreshments, of course!

Node PDX 2016
through The Bossanova Ballroom

Portland is an awesome place to be a JavaScript hacker.

JavaScript is everywhere. It’s in your browser, on your server, in your phone, on the wire between your devices, and possibly in your thermostat, beer keg, or karaoke system... and it’s only growing from there. We’ve gone from roll-over effects to robots, codeable toys and automated quad-copter drones, all speaking a common language of JSON, often sharing JavaScript code at their core.

Portland is home to some of the most talented developers in the world. We’re not kidding. Our quirky and distinctive town breeds creativity in all things, from the culinary arts and funky brews we’re so famous for to artisanally crafted Python and minimalist-chic of JavaScript micro-libraries. PDX is bursting with artistic craftsmanship unlike anywhere else on the planet.

NodePDX creates a time and a place for this community to share information, discuss ideas, and work together to improve the art and science of hacking.
