Get hands-on experience with the Elm syntax and tooling as well as functional programming concepts by learning how to build type-safe apps with Elm. You will leave this workshop fully equipped to start utilizing Elm on new projects or integrating it into existing JavaScript projects.\r\n\r\nPART 2 (afternoon) - Functional JavaScript for people who hate math\r\nUsed properly, functional programming means cleaner code, easier maintenance, and simpler testing. But most of us will never use it. Why? Because functional programming is usually explained with jargon, complex math, and some nonsense about monads or whatever. And math is hard, so most of us run away screaming. But here's the thing: functional programming doesn't actually require math. This workshop will teach you how to get the benefits of functional programming today — no math required.",

Fortunately, many open source hardware solutions exist such as Arduino, Raspberry PI, RedBoard and a few others, which provides developers an opportunity to cultivate a thorough understanding of electronics and learn how to integrate them using software. This discussion will focus on Arduino since it is the most prominent of these solutions.",

However, should there be more to this process, especially if you are concerned about people understanding how to use what you develop? Learn why the \"5-second rule\" doesn't apply just to picking food off the floor, how the wrong icon can show cultural insensitivity, why the manner icons are placed in a website or app may be as important as the images themselves, and how to perform icon usability tests. You may be surprised which icons users find to be generally instantly recognizable as to what functions they relate, and which others not so much.",

"description":"Your Angular app is nearly done and now you just need to add authentication before it goes out to the real world. Simple, right? Not always. There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to authentication in general and it gets even worse for single page apps. Fortunately for us, Angular provides some great tools that help to make our lives easier when it comes to implementing authentication.
