  3. Build Your 1st iOS App with React Native

    November 02, 2017

    November 02, 2017

    React Native is a popular framework created by Facebook for building native iOS and Android apps using Javascript.  It's a fantastic way to get started building mobile apps, especially if you already have some experience with web development.  In addition, it is possible to build and prototype an iOS app using a Windows or Linux machine, so everyone can join in the fun!

    This talk will focus on the basic building blocks of a typical React Native app.  We will build the app together, so please feel free to bring your own mobile device and laptop to the talk so that you can follow along.

  4. 0 to 100% - Build & Deploy a Website in an Hour

    0 to 100% - Build & Deploy a Website in an Hour

    Presented by Tolga Balci @tolgabalci


    We will build from scratch a website using Angular and Firebase which includes:
    • Database
    • User Authentication
    • SSL/TLS (https)
    • Bootstrap Styling
    • (Limited Free) Hosting
    • Custom Domain Name
       

    Angular provides a fast way to start building well architected websites.

       

    Google Firebase provides the core services most websites need to get up and running. This includes a database, user authentication, functions, file storage, free website hosting (with some generous limits) and more.

       

    In this session we will use Angular CLI and Firebase CLI to build a site from scratch.  This will give you a template you can use to create a real website that you can later start building on top of incrementally.  Fantastic for learning and experimenting with web technologies.

  6. NRV Container Day

    September 02, 2017

    September 02, 2017

    At Torgersen Hall, Room 3100 on the Virginia Tech campus.

    This one-day event is designed to help you get up and running with Docker. Come in knowing nothing and leave knowing what it takes to run containerized applications. If you bring an app, we can even help containerize it!

    This ContainerDay is being run by the Docker Blacksburg Meetup group. While this first event is targeting developers, we hope to have events for ContainerDay Ops and ContainerDay Students in the future. Stay tuned!

    Go to https://nrvcontainerday.io/ to learn more.
