About “Lightning Talks”

Lightning Talks are a really fun event we put on every 3 months. Community members have 5 to 10 minutes to talk about JavaScript or topics related to JavaScript. We give preference to new speakers to strengthen our community. To participate: post your topic and presentation length.

Common talk themes include: problems you’ve solved, libraries you like, a cool blog post you read, something you’re working on now, or pretty much any other way you’re using JavaScript to achieve your goals.

Please note that marketing pitches are not allowed; lightning talks are a community enrichment event.

Meeting: Aug 16 - Free Yourself from the Browser with Electron

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

About “Free Yourself from the Browser with Electron”

Let Electron take you where no JavaScript has been before…

We use JavaScript on the client-side and server-side. Now, with Electron, we can take JavaScript offline. Electron uses Chromium and Node, and is accessible across multiple operating systems. Electron has been used to build apps like Slack, Atom, and Visual Studio Code.

This talk will teach all you need to know to start writing your first offline apps with JavaScript and Electron.
