Hope you can join us for our new Minneapolis office open house/holiday party/charity gala Thursday, December 17th from 4-8. We’ll post more details in the upcoming weeks. Save the date.
We hosted the Omaha Android Meetup at the OPI Omaha office, where Mark Corrado did a live code review of a simple demo app that he built. He walked through how the app works, and the code behind it. You can find the app here. Jay Newstrom also did a talk that covered Permissions in Android Marshmallow. You can find Jay’s slides here.
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.
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.
We do internal user group meetings at Object Partners. For this quarter, Jon DeJong presented on using MongoDB and AngularJS with a variety of backend services like Ratpack. John Engelman talked about Rancher.io for Docker container orchestration. John Holland did an overview of how Kafka works and its differences from other broker solutions. And Zach Legein talked about Webpack – hot module replacement.
