About this event

We will have two talks this month.

And, as usual, we'll have pizza and beverages served courtesy of TekSystems and will draw our monthly raffle.

Talk #1: Google I/O Overview (Oleg Kalugin, Kyle Syler, Alain Chautard)

We will talk about the major announcements made at Google I/O 2017 a few weeks ago.

Talk #2: IoT PWA IRL FTW (LOL) (Tara Manicsic)

Progressive Web Apps are not replacing native mobile applications any time soon. Don’t disregard them just yet! They can take our web applications that we currently have running In Real Life. By using support for offline caching, push notifications, home screen icons and more, we can use PWAs to make our apps more reliable and engaging, For The Win! We will walk through creating a simple Angular application using the Kendo UI for Angular library to get started. Then we’ll see how quickly we can upgrade our application to a PWA. Looking into each addition, we’ll discuss why and how this progresses our application.
