About this event

After taking a short summer break, we are back with two more exciting talks!

Reactive web apps with RxJs and Observables

Alain Chautard

This time, we'll hear from Alain about observables from RxJs, a key library used in all Angular applications, and that has equivalent implementations in Java, Python, etc. We will see how RxJs can handle asynchronous tasks as well as talk about RxJs operators.

Bio: Alain Chautard is a Google Developer Expert in Web Technologies / Angular. He started working with Angular JS in 2011. Since then he has worked with all Angular versions on a daily basis, both as a developer and as a technical trainer. He is the organizer of the Sacramento Angular Meetup group, co-organizer of the Google Developer Group chapter in Sacramento, California, conference speaker, and published author of the Packt video course “Getting Started with Angular“.

Building a Bitcoin Hardware Wallet with Golang and a Raspberry Pi Zero

Nic Raboy - @nraboy

The Raspberry Pi Zero is an Internet of Things (IoT) device the size of a pack of gum without WiFi or Bluetooth that can run Linux and costs only five dollars. When working with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, it is recommended that wallets are encrypted and never to be exposed to the internet. In this presentation, we're going to see how Golang can be used to generate cryptocurrency wallet information sandboxed and encrypted on the Raspberry Pi Zero, an alternative to buying one of the expensive options, but maintaining similar functionality.

About the Speaker:
