With 2018 coming to an end, it makes sense to have a holiday mixer (family friendly) with the group to bring the year to a close.
There will be food so please RSVP if you're coming so that way we can order the appropriate amount. Bring your spouses and children as well since this is a family friendly event.
We're trialing a new location this time around at the Northgate Village in Tracy. The space is larger and will be our new location for future meetings.

Ever tried to launch a website of blog with WordPress or Drupal but found that it was experiencing poor performance or was becoming increasingly expensive to operate? Dynamic content, or content that is rendered based on database or HTTP requests, can become more costly to operate as demand increases or slower as features are added. We're going to look at static site generators such as Hugo which allows you to pre-compile, in a sense, your website or blog using a familiar syntax such as Markdown, so that way it is blazing fast, cheap, and has no dependence on a database. The speaker's blog, www.thepolyglotdeveloper.com, is an example of what you can accomplish with Hugo.

Remember RESTful APIs? Remember how you had to create an API endpoint for every little thing and as your business grew, so did the data payloads of your API endpoints? Remember how tiring it is to consume data from large APIs via a frontend like Angular or React? Take GraphQL, a new concept that allows you to query your APIs rather than just consume data from them. Using GraphQL, you can query for data from your frontend using a single endpoint and no specific amount of data complexity. In this session, learn how to create an API powered by GraphQL using Node.js and a NoSQL database.

Drupal out of the box can seem like a monolithic nightmare. During this presentation we will go over how to break this beast out into a three tier architecture system using Docker and Amazon Web Services to create a scalable and reliable Drupal stack. In this talk we will discuss how we use Docker to containerize Drupal, PHP Composer to build and maintain Drupal, and both custom and open source modules to run Drupal in AWS.

Angular used to be AngularJS. Then it became Angular 2. Then they skipped version 3. Then 4, 5 and 6 came out in rapid fire succession. Where do you begin?!
We’ll look at how to start building an Angular project from scratch. Beginning with some basic Node commands, we’ll scaffold out an Angular project and look at how the project is organized. Next, we’ll walk thru some basics of TypeScript and MVVM basics. We’ll end with building your first Angular project, some tips on debugging and places to look up more information.
- A quick overview of MVC vs MVVM
- Building your first Angular project
- Components, Views
- Adding a Route to your project
