Check out our co-hosts: Modern Web and Angular MTV!

Special thanks to the Angular team for sponsoring great food at this event!

We'll start off this event with a State of Angular from Stephen Fluin then 3 talks.

Speaker: Jeff Cross, Co-Founder, nrwl.io
Title: Embracing the Monorepo with Nx

Teams building large applications have a lot of common challenges. How to provide consistent design and experience across many applications? How to avoid solving the same problems many times across teams? How to efficiently verify that shared libraries and apps work together as both are evolving? Nx (Nrwl Extensions for Angular) solves these challenges and more by encouraging teams to keep many applications and shared libraries in the same repository, or a "monorepo." Jeff Cross from Nrwl (nrwl.io) will specifically discuss why the monorepo approach makes sense for large teams, and what Nx does to help teams organize their code in this fashion.

Speaker: Matias Niemala, Angular Core Team, Google
Title: Animate all the things

Watch Matias do some live coding and learn how to build parts of the flagship Angular animation website (http://animationsftw.in).

Speaker: Nathan Walker, Co-Founder, nStudio.io
Title: Balance and Harmony with Angular and NativeScript

"Metal" from our computers and devices is one of the 5 essential elements of Feng Shui and it surrounds us everywhere we go. Although the user interface on these devices is not often considered an element of this analysis, color certainly is and an experience with these devices can certainly affect our immediate environment (and mood!). Let's discuss how bringing together Angular and NativeScript can help achieve balance and harmony between the web and mobile spaces which affect our everyday lives. Nathan Walker from nStudio (Tracy - I will provide a website link when it is complete by end of next week) has been experimenting with these 2 technologies since they first emerged and has gone on to create several successful products with them. Along the way, we'll learn some tips and best practices when using them together as well in an Nx workspace (spoiler alert!).
