For years many user groups have been mingle, eat, lecture, leave (sometimes with beer or coffee afterwards).
Flipped classrooms are becoming popular. Let’s try this with the LocalOmaha.org project! Instead of coming to a meeting then trying things at home, please come to a meeting having listened to some lecture at home — in the meeting we’ll work in small groups to try things out!
LocalOmaha.org will use AngularJS to build a mobile web application.
- The PhoneCat Tutorial App is free and a tradition read and follow along way to learn AngularJS.
- CodeSchool.com’s Shaping Up with AngularJS class is an amazing video lecture, pdf slides, and in browser (nothing to install) exercises way to learn AngularJS. This class is free! Most of codeschool is paid content. Google sponsored making this class free.
Please work through one or both of these tutorials before coming to the dojo micro-hackathon on Saturday 2/7/15. If you don’t have time to work through one of these, that’s ok. If you do, things will be much better.
