Introducing Aurelia with Matt Duffield


Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, January 26, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. It seems like the landscape is constantly changing for front-end frameworks and what we will be looking at is no different. However, this may be one of those frameworks that you take a look at and decide that it is just the right thing. It incorporates ES6 and pieces of ES7 and makes developing in JavaScript a pleasure…well, almost.

We will take a look at what Aurelia has to offer and how you can get started building our rich enterprise applications. We will also identify some of the cool features ES6 provides in building your applications.

The meeting presenter is Matt Duffield.

JavaScript of Tomorrow Is Already Here with Matt Duffield


Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, April 28, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. We will take a look at the landscape for creating rich single page applications and how ECMAScript 6 is becoming popular now. We will evaluate what it means to write an application in ES6 and also look at some features of ES7 that are being targeted now as well. We will also look at automation tools like GulpJS and, the new kid on the block, JSPM. This will be an introduction to all that is coming at Mach speed. You can decide to jump in and learn now or wait until your are forced to. We hope you will see some advantages of taking a look now and how some tooling, like Microsoft’s TypeScript, is trying to help in the transition.
