ng-Nebraska

Object Partners hosted the NG-Nebraska user group at the OPI Omaha office October 27th. Jake Partusch gave an introduction to Angular 2. He demonstrated the changes including: components, event syntax, HTTP, and building an Angular 2 Todo app from the ground up. Link to the presentation is here, and repo is here.

Gradle & Docker workshop

John Engelman did a presentation in Chicago at 1871 – Source to Deployment with Gradle & Docker. The talk explored utilizing these tools to create an automated pipeline to take your code from source to running in production with minimal interaction. While this presentation utilized Java/Groovy as the application, any application can be automated with these tools. Repo can be found here.
