Atlanta JavaScript Meetup

I guess I'd never really thought about it. Would you consider JavaScript to be Open Source? Well, Firefox supports it and Firefox is Open Source. Most of the Javascript libraries out there (JQuery, Moo, Prototype, etc) are open source. Even the EXT JS library has a GPL v3 version. So I guess I'll have to say that it's open. Anyway, there's a new JavaScript meetup forming. At the moment they haven't decided on a place to meet, and their charter is a bit thin: Meet other local JavaScripters to share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications. But follow along, sign up and be there! See: The Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Page.

    Hello folks! For our second meeting this month --- our regular monthly meeting --- we will have Adam Morgan talk to us about automated testing and end to end (e2e) testing in Angular. To open for him: Rachel Poulos will talk about the basics of RxJS.

    Main Speaker:

    Adam Morgan is the author of The Angular Tutorial—a book that teaches front-end development and automated testing with Angular, Jasmine, and Cypress. After a brief stint as a data analyst in marketing consulting, he quit his job to learn web development. Since then he has spent most of his time working with JavaScript, primarily on MEAN stacks.

    Automated testing with Angular:

    In this talk, Adam will introduce automated testing within the context of Angular applications. You will learn the benefits of automated testing and the tools that are used for both unit and end-to-end testing. You’ll walk away with what you need to know to setup a test suite for your own Angular applications.

    Opening Speaker:

    Rachel is a TA at one of Atlanta's top rated coding bootcamp, Digital Crafts. Before learning web development, she spent her time back backing around the world including most of Europe and ~1500 miles of the Appalachian Trail.

    Learn how to write a simple autocomplete search using observables / rxjs. Code will be shared for vanilla js, and for the react.js framework.
