CNYDEV – Programs for Remainder of 2016-2017

At our recent CNYDEV meeting we took a vote on topics our members would like to see for the remainder of the 2016-2017 season.

The clear “winners” were:

  • Getting Started with Mobile Development in 2017 – what should you use if starting today?
  • Angular 2

I would like to expand the Getting Started with Mobile 2017 into three sessions:

  • ios
  • Android
  • Multi-Platform mobile tools – such as Telerik

So with an Angular 2 presentation we’ll have a full year of programs!

If you can present one of these four topics to the group OR can find someone who can, please let me know on this meetup.com discussion page:

Discuss On Meetup.com

Thanks,
Fred Nelson

  • Brief intro to JSX syntax and build toolchains
  • Using components to make a simple app
