Async: "What is Angular 2?"

Angular 2 is a complete rewrite of AngularJS (like a new language) and got to its full release of 2.0.0 in mid Sept 2016 after 2 years of going through alpha, beta and RC releases and has new bits added every week (now at 2.3.1 – 20/12/16). Gordon Cumming is a Senior Angular/Angular 2 developer and has been studying Angular 2 for over 2 years although only started coding in Oct 2015. He lives and breathes Angular 2 on a daily basis (often 12 hours per day 7 days a week) and has written a 2000 page training application in Angular 2, all about Angular 2, with about 50 working applications within it to demonstrate different features. This application has lots of show/hide sections so that the viewers don’t have too much information on the screen at once.

Angular 2 is a complete framework (as is AngularJS) compared to ReactJS (only a library) and it has many more features, compared to these others. It is complex due to its many parts, but on a basic level, easy to get things done (not difficult), once you’ve gone up a learning curve. However there are of course more complex bits, which will take months or years of knowledge and experience to know about and master. The number of times I’ve heard an expert? say “I hadn’t heard of that part of Angular 2 before!” Some of these features will help improve the performance (load time or run time speed) or sometimes help reduce the size of your code (important for mobile devices).

In this talk Gordon will use slides and example coding to introduce you to Angular 2, show you what its main features are, compare it to AngularJS (Angular 1.x) and ReactJS, warn you about some pitfalls in learning Angular 2 and what the best way to get started with it is. He will cover what it is, the main building blocks and features and how it caters for different platforms.

Brighton Java Coding Dojo

Coding Dojos are practical sessions where people take turns to pair-program in public, working together to solve a problem. It's a fun, non-competitive way to improve your development skills and to see how other people approach problems. As each pair works the screen is projected so everyone can see what is happening. 

Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the session starting at 7pm sharp. We'll begin by quickly introducing test-driven development; then we'll see the problem and everyone will take turns pair-programming until about 8:30. After that, a quick review session before unwinding at a nearby pub or cafe.

The session is suitable for levels of expertise, from beginners to gurus. The wider the range of experience, the better.

Snacks and soft drinks will be available. Please sign up on the meetup site.

BrightonPHP: PHP Tales of a Front-End Developer

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you’ve all survived the excesses of the festive season, and recovered from the shock of your first week back at work. While we weren’t looking, two Mondays have already slipped past us this month, so it’s less than a week until our first meetup of 2017.

On Monday 16th January, we’ll be welcoming Jeremy Keith of Clearleft to tell us his Tales of PHP – and, hopefully welcoming you! Join us there, 7PM at the Student Room Group next to Brighton station; and meanwhile, spread the word, and let us know you’re coming, on Facebook, or on Lanyrd.


Jeremy Keith: PHP Tales of a Front-End Developer
Hacking around with PHP—tales of using PHP from someone who isn’t a back-end developer.

Jeremy Keith is a front-end web developer, author, and co-founder of the design agency Clearleft here in Brighton. He’s also spoken at more conferences than I’ve had Christmas dinners, so it’s sure to be a treat.

What’s Coming Up?
We’re hard at work lining up more great speakers for 2017, and we’d like your help! What topics would you like to hear about? Have you seen a great speaker somewhere else you’d love to hear talk again – or missed them and want a second chance? Or maybe you could be our next speaker – did you spend your Christmas hiding from relatives learning some great new technology? Has the new year seen the release of your proudest project? Why not come and talk about it for 20 minutes to a bunch of like-minded geeks? Drop us an e-mail, and we’ll put you in the calendar.

Elsewhere, the PHP South Coast conference is back and bigger than ever! Now taking place over two days, this is the third year of this conference over in Portsmouth, and “blind bird” tickets are on sale now for just £90. Watch this space for further details, or dive in for what’s surely great value.

As ever, we really are keen to hear your feedback; e-mail feedback@brightonphp.org with any ideas you have. We hope to see you all next Monday!

Working with Clarity: How to be Very Clear

A one-day workshop on how to take any idea from fuzzy to flying in 90 minutes or less. Clarify yours and learn a new tool for coaching others.

(Includes a free set of Very Clear Ideas cards for every participant).

Ideas are powerful. They change the world. They can make people feel inspired and to act in new ways.

But they can also be elusive. They don't seem to do what you want them to, showing up at all the wrong times, or just not at all.

Together we'll be finding out why this is, and I'll show you how to get any idea, project or business super clear and compelling.

What will we be doing?

Over one-day workshop, we'll look at what makes a clear idea. Where they come from, how you know if they're clear, how to tell who's involved and what's needed.

We'll then learn and practice Charles Davies' Very Clear Ideas process - a coaching tool for getting anyone clear, about anything.

By the end of the day you will feel clear about your idea, project or business, and have the tools and confidence to help others do the same. 

What will you learn?

We encourage everyone who comes to be bringing an idea that they're working on, right now.

By the end of the day, you will:

• Understand the mechanics and make-up of clear ideas.

• Have new clarity and insight on the ideas that you're working on.

• Feel confident in using the Very Clear Ideas process.

• Be given a set of Very Clear Ideas cards for you to keep.

Who's leading this training?

My name is Max, and I've been helping people realise their ideas in different ways for the past eight years. I've been the MD of a democratic business, consultant to major global firms and Government departments, coach to stressed out CEOs and a teacher of small children. 

I've been taught the Very Clear Ideas process by Charles Davies, and been working with it all over Europe for the past three years, in alternative business schools and in coaching relationships. The realisation about the genesis of ideas was a big leap forward for me, in my practice, so I'm keen to share it here.

Where? When? 

Date: Tuesday 17th January 2017

Time: 9.30am-4.30pm

Venue: The Happy Startup HQ, New England House, Brighton

Not Networking - Brighton (year dates)

A relaxed, fun way to get yourself out there... Literally.

Have you been put off by business networking events in the past? Bad coffee and even worse ties? We know the ones. As a business owner, you might think it's a necessary evil but we've got other ideas.

Not Networking is for people who don't want to pitch or be sold to, but instead want to meet like minded people and just chat about things they love and do best by getting out the office.

Not Networking meet in Brighton on the 3rd Thursday of the month (and in Worthing on 1st Tuesday - book via separate eventbrite page)

Join us for a nice relaxed walk through Hove Park, from the Cafe around the park and back to the Cafe for a drink, once a month, come rain or shine.

Not Networking has no exclusions, no lock-outs and no charge – the only thing you need to come along is an opinion and a business – whether that’s just a budding business idea in its infancy or a PLC, the more the merrier. Sound good?

Exploring the 3rd Dimension

Our first event of 2017 will see local developer Berl Steiner present an innovative data visualisation tool which he’s planning to release soon. While most data visualisations are two dimensional there haven’t been so many cases of using 3 dimensions to effectively enhance visualisation.

Berl has developed a compelling web application called 3D Data Explorer which can visualise a generic data set (such as a CSV file output by Excel) using 3 dimensions. 

3D Data Explorer also has a number of operations which allow the dataset to be explored and I’ve seen myself that insights can be found that may otherwise have been missed.

Apart from the usefulness of the application, it also looks fantastic!

This’ll be the first time 3D Data Explorer has been demonstrated in public so If you’d like to be the first to see this innovative data visualisation tool do come along.

We're also very pleased to announce our very first sponsor Brighton based Ozkan Accountants who've kindly offered to sponsor after-talk drinks. Nilden, director of Ozkan Accountants, is keen to support local events such as ours and hopes that providing after-talk drinks will help our community forge new and meaningful links. Thank you Nilden!

Talk Evening: Java Web Development the Hard Way

Our first talk of 2017 discusses some pitfalls of rapid software development. Doors open at 7pm and we will have beer, soft drinks and pizza supplied by our sponsors Brandwatch. Talks will begin around 7:30pm. Developers of all levels are welcome to join us.

This evening will be live streamed with a recording to be posted on our YouTube channel shortlly after. The stream starts at 7:30pm and is located at https://t.co/vQlL2XEoIA 

Java Web Development the Hard Way

Tools like Spring Boot now mean that you can produce a working service from a tweet's worth of code. But too often rushing headlong into production can lead to problems later.

James Burt looks at the work needed to get a supportable Java service into production. Too often, in the hurry to release features, companies pile on technical debt until their code becomes unmanageable. How do you avoid getting into these situations? And what do you do if it's already happened?

This talk will start with a simple Spring Boot service and look at the tools and techniques that should be added before going live, making a case for a slower, more sustainable pace of development. 

James has been a developer for almost 20 years, starting with Oracle databases and moving into Java web development in 2000. He is one of the founders of Brighton Java.

You use an increasing amount of visual content in your marketing.
You struggle to find enough appropriate, good quality copyright-free imagery.
You would like to take better photographs on your mobile so they are good enough to use in your marketing.

Why copyright is not that scary but how to make sure you stay legal [weirdly enough this can be a really fun section!]
Places to go to source free images and some important things to remember when you do
How to look at the way your company is portrayed visually with fresh eyes and hopefully get some new ideas
The basic techniques and tips directly from our award-winning photographers - to help you take more snackable content for your marketing

The whole idea behind the workshop is to give you practical tips, information and guidance to take straight back to your marketing.

If you sense there is an area you want to know more about, we are available to help you go further at a future point, for example, it may be that your team or managers could do with looking at it together in the future.

This workshop is to equip you with an understanding of the visual side to marketing, how powerful it can be and how important it is not to ignore it.

46% of marketers say photography is critical to their current marketing and storytelling strategies [Source].

Our website has a bit more information about us, plus some testimonials about the courses: http://vervate.com/bespoke-visual-content/workshops

• There will be showcasing of cutting edge examples of where digital technology can add value to the music sector and an overview from The Digital Catapult Centre Brighton on the state of play of the digital sector in the city. 
• There will be lots of opportunities to network and to learn from each other. 
We hope this event will be the start of future activity and collaborations in this space and we are looking to support and foster them.

I WORK IN THE MUSIC SECTOR, WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
