A walking tour of TypeScript and Angular 4
The TypeScript-driven Angular framework is a one-stop shop for writing reactive single page web applications. Where other libraries like React force you to add every additional feature manually, and pick between several approaches, Angular tries to give you most everything you need within its ecosystem.
We'll take a walking tour of Angular 4, released just before ng-conf 2017, and build an application together using the Angular CLI. We'll learn enough TypeScript to wonder how you have lived without it for all these years, and build some components, services, and interact with data via a streaming API, RxJS.
- Please run through these instructions before arriving.

Ruby Introduction Class
Fun with Programming and Flow Control: Ruby Games
Are you interested in programming, but perhaps felt too intimidated to try it? With the right setting and approach, learning to program can be challenging and fun! Together, we’ll create some simple programs using Ruby and conditional statements that can help our programs make decisions. After learning the basics, we’ll find out what dice, rock, paper, scissors, and guess the number all have in common - they’re fun games to build with programming and Ruby! In this workshop, we’ll create games that use input, output, conditional statements, and looping.

Ruby Intermediate Class
Intro to Test Driven Development with Ruby and RSpec
In this workshop, we’ll write code that automatically tests our…code. Test Driven Development is a popular development technique where we write code that essentially validates our understanding of how a program should work. By writing these tests first with Ruby and RSpec, we can write better and more resilient programs. Along the way, we’ll learn about some object oriented design principles that will help us to write better and more coherent code.
