Minneapolis MongoDB User Group

Jon DeJong presented at the Minneapolis MongoDB User Group September 22nd. He showed us multiple ways to access MongoDB on the JVM. For the talk he used both Java and Groovy. He demonstrated the same REST API built on four different frameworks, NodeJS (JavaScript), Ratpack (Groovy), Spring Boot (Java) and Grails with GORM (ORM built on on Hibernate). All these examples are publically available on GitHub.

Object Partners hosted the Angular remote conference at our Omaha office September 24-26th. On day one, Kent Dodds talked about “Open Sourcing Your Stuff”, day two was Jeff Whelpley presenting on Angular 2 trends and analysis. Day 3 was Brad Green hosting an open Q&A. Great event and experience.

Object Partners hosted the NG-Nebraska user group at the OPI Omaha office September 22nd. Carlos Paelinck gave an introduction to the Ionic Framework and building hybrid apps using Angular. Topics include using the CLI, Views, Components, Styles, and everything you need to know to get started building awesome mobile apps. Mike Plummer also did a lightning talk that gave a brief overview of Angular’s built-in caching capabilities including how it works and how you can use it. There was also a few examples of caching in action as well as quick ways to customize and extend basic caches.

Grails workshop

Jacob Severson did a presentation in Chicago at 1871 – Grails: build fast, scale faster. The talk introduced Grails with a sample application that showed how easy it is to build a Grails app. The goal of the talk was to get a tour into the world of Grails, see some of the problems it excels in solving (as well as those it doesn’t), experience the speed of building an application from zero to production, and to find out how Grails allows rapid scalability when you need it the most. Presentation here.
