GatorJUG - The Gainesville Java User Group - Angular, d3, GraphDBs and Neo4J - Feb 16 Tuesday 6-8PM

America/New York


We have a special guest, in all the way from the snowy north - Jackie Gleason is enjoying some sunshine and surf with his family this week in Melbourne He's agreed (read: his wife agreed) to drive up to Gainesville tomorrow night (Tuesday) and give a couple of presentations on Angular, d3, GraphDBs and Neo4J. So, if you've wondered what all the excitement is about these technologies: JavaScript frameworks and graph databases, Jackie is an expert. What I am saying is he didn't just throw this material together. He knows these technologies backwards and forwards. So, even if you've been using Angular, d3, GraphDBs and/or Neo4J for a long time, you'll have a venue to ask questions and fine tune your knowledge.

Just so you know, O'Reilly and Neo4J have a book on graph databases you can download for free. Here's the link:

Angular 2 is out and the framework has changed, so you can brief yourself painlessly at tomorrow's meeting (Tuesday 2/16 at Santa Fe College Building S Room 317)

What's d3? "D3 allows you to bind arbitrary data to a Document Object Model (DOM), and then apply data-driven transformations to the document. For example, you can use D3 to generate an HTML table from an array of numbers. Or, use the same data to create an interactive SVG bar chart with smooth transitions and interaction.

D3 is not a monolithic framework that seeks to provide every conceivable feature. Instead, D3 solves the crux of the problem: efficient manipulation of documents based on data. This avoids proprietary representation and affords extraordinary flexibility, exposing the full capabilities of web standards such as HTML, SVG, and CSS. With minimal overhead, D3 is extremely fast, supporting large datasets and dynamic behaviors for interaction and animation. D3’s functional style allows code reuse through a diverse collection of components and plugins."

We'll meet Tuesday 2/16 at Santa Fe College Building S Room 317 -

RSVP at Codetown - so I'll know how much pizza to buy.

We have a shiny new Meetup page if you like Meetup -

As always, I hope to see many of you there!
