  4. February meeting: Design Patterns in JavaScript

    February 05, 2015

    February 05, 2015


    Presented By: Aftab Ahmed

    JavaScript should be treated like any programming language when it comes to designing your code structure. We will look at several patterns that can be used to structure code in a way that’s more re-useable, more maintainable, and less susceptible to naming collisions. We will learn about patterns such as the Revealing Module and Revealing Prototype patterns and see how they can be used to convert function spaghetti code into structured code that encapsulates variables and functions. Then we will expand our discussion towards other common patterns, including function argument patterns, chaining, and observable properties.We will continue to take a look at patterns using timers, including asynchronous execution and recursive setTimeout. Finally we review module patterns, pub-sub patterns, and the promise pattern.

    Aftab is a Solutions Architect and Lead Software developer at CBIZ. His biggest interest is thinking about how abstract concepts come together to make a whole and can be taken apart without breaking them.

  5. January Meeting - Aspect Oriented Programming with Brian Lanham

    January 08, 2015

    January 08, 2015

    Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) is not a new concept but in my experience .NET development has been slow to adopt this powerful technique.  In this presentation we will learn about AOP and how it addresses cross-cutting concerns of modern applications.  We will also discuss the differences between compile-time weaving and dynamic proxies.  Then we’ll write code to see how to implement AOP techniques using PostSharp Express in a C# application.  Finally, we’ll talk about LinFu and ‘Roslyn' and learn how to write your own frameworks for cross-cutting.


    Please note that the meeting date has been moved to the second Thursday this month, due to the New Year holiday.
