Workshop Descriptions

Introduction to MVC with Laravel PHP with Instructor: Wilhem Alcivar, Zip Code Wilmington

What is this course about? Laravel is a feature rich fluent PHP framework built on top of Symfony. Out of the box Laravel comes with a fully functional web app with authentication and authorization set up for you. From there getting your own features into your web app couldn't be easier. Laravel is designed not only for best practices for the modern web, but with developer happiness and ease of use in mind. Built around the largest community for any open source language, Laravel also boasts tools and packages for almost any use case you could imagine.

Prerequisites: This class can be taken by anyone curious about modern PHP development, but it is highly recommended for people with some PHP experience or experience with web development in any other language. If you are a fan of Spring, Django, or Ruby on Rails and are curious to learn the basics of a PHP framework, this is the class for you! Please come with PHP 7.0 (or higher) and Composer (https://getcomposer.org/download/) installed so you may follow along on your own machines.

Introduction to Go with Instructor: Kristofer Younger, Zip Code Wilmington

What is this course about? Go was designed and developed to make working in this environment more productive. Besides its better-known aspects such as built-in concurrency and garbage collection, Go's design considerations include rigorous dependency management, the adaptability of software architecture as systems grow, and robustness across the boundaries between components. Get a quick intro to Go’s coolest features.

React on a Dare - Rapid Prototyping and Development with React and Friends with instructor: Ken Rimple, Director of Training and Mentoring Services, Chariot Solutions

What is this course about? We've all had times where we had to crank out a user interface for a prototype or to begin a minimum viable product. What if we were asked to do that right now? Turns out, React, using the create-react-app starter, is just the tool to use to get the job done. In this seminar we'll build an application together in React, starting with a simple UI prototyping discussion, building a non-functional rendered UI, then move to partitioning it up into separate components and ultimately bolting on state and events. We'll take a little time to pull the state out into a state store (Redux) and we'll use the React Router to partition the app into several different views.

Prerequisites: This session is geared to the absolute React beginner. We'll assume you have a bit of JavaScript under your belt, and are a seasoned .NET or Java programmer besides. All you need to do is install the Long-Term support version of Node.Js and have joined conference WIFI and you're all set. We'll take it from there together.

Building Hybrid mobile apps……….The right way (Like a G!) with Instructor: Tariq Hook, Zip Code Wilmington

What is this course about? Do you want to learn how to leverage your front-end HTML and Javascript knowledge into building mobile apps? Have you tried to build Hybrid Apps before, and found the process frustrating and cumbersome? Do you want to make interactive apps, while lighting is crackling from your fingertips? Then this workshop is for you. Learn how to build mobile applications using the Ionic framework

Prerequisites: You’re familiar with web development (HTML/CSS/JavaScript) and would like to build mobile apps, but don’t fancy having to learn Objective C and/or Swift for iOS, Java for Android, etc. Or maybe you’ve tried developing apps the “native” way only to realize that it’s a huge pain and you end up duplicating the same codebase in a different language for each platform. Ionic is built on top of Apache Cordova (the open source project underlying PhoneGap) and Angular 4, Ionic lets you develop mobile apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, while providing a native look and feel on each supported platform. This course will provide you with all the knowledge necessary to start developing your own apps using Ionic, by taking a hands-on “by example” approach.
