Angular Hacknight

Angular 2 was released in May 2016. The Angular team has been working to stabilize this release, posting periodic updates.

Meanwhile, at JSFoo 2016, amidst talks about ReactJS, Vinci Rufus spoke about Angular 2 and how it can be used to make your app lean and fast.

Taking off from the discussions at JSFoo about Angular, React and other frameworks, a key question is why and how do you choose the JS frameworks that best suit your app?

We'd like to take this discussion forward in the context of AngularJS to understand how startups and larger businesses are using it. Why is Angular relevant, if it is? What are the pain points in migrating from Angular 1 to Angular 2? Is there enough support available for migration? How much do we really know about Angular 2?

We have curated a series of events, starting today, to answer these questions:

  1. Join us at this evening's open house at HasGeek House where we debate about Angular, React and the question of frameworks – why we love them? Why we dislike them? Why are frameworks relevant? When are frameworks restricting? RSVP here
  2. On 4th February, we have put together a three-hour tutorial on Angular where the instructors will talk about building Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) using Angular 2 and about migrating your existing app from Angular 1 to Angular 2. This tutorial takes places from 2 PM - 5 PM and will be conducted by Rahat Khanna, Senior UI Engineer at Flipkart & Vinci Rufus, Director of eXperience Technologies at SapientNitro.
  3. Following the tutorial, we will launch into a hacknight. The hacknight is open to those interested in starting / completing hands-on projects with Angular. You should attend this hacknight if you want to
    • Build Angular apps
    • If you have an Angular 1 app which you want to convert to Angular 2 and build a great user experience


The hacknight will start at 5 PM on Saturday, 4th February. Participants attending the hacknight should assemble at CloudCherry by 4 PM. We will have a round of introductions where participants introduce themselves and / or their projects. By 5:30 PM, participants can start working on their projects. Mentors will be present throughout the night to advise and review projects. Participants should demonstrate their work, starting 10 AM on Sunday, 5th February. Dinner, breakfast and refreshments will be provided during the hacknight.

We'd like to thank CloudCherry for supporting the hacknight and making its premises and facilities available to JS developers for the tutorial and the hacknight.
