Bothell Web Developers Meetup

• What we'll do
Our weekly meetup at Spotted Cow in Everett. We will be working on projects and talking about code. This is a good chance to share new ideas and get some coding done on that project you have been meaning to do. Please make sure to RSVP if you plan to attend and let us know if you can not make it as seats are limited.

* Parking
There is parking behind and in front of Spotted Cow. Additional parking is in the parking garage under the building that is opposite of Spotted cow. The entrance to the garage is opposite of Azules.

* How to find us.
I will have a small double-sided green sign at the table I'm sitting at. One side says "Code && Caffiene" the other side says "C && C". I will put out this sign between 5:30 and 5:40PM to help early comers find me.

There is also parking behind the clock tower that is opposite of the fitness center.

Disclaimer: This is not a recruitment event. We welcome developers and aspiring developers to come and talk shop or work on projects. As seats are limited and we wish to keep the talk on topic, we request that non-technical members and recruiters do not attend. We have discussion forums for project/job postings and a place to ask the group questions.

Seattle Java User's Group (http://www.seajug.org)

CUBA Platform is an open source Java framework for rapid enterprise application development. CUBA allows developing applications much faster using a well-known set of frameworks: Spring, Vaadin, EclipseLink and more.

We've spent our time developing CUBA, adding extra functionality to frameworks so you won't spend your time on implementing common tasks like user management, security and audit, generic REST API, etc. CUBA provides plenty of features out of the box and you will still be using well-known frameworks during development. In addition to this, we will introduce the unique application extension approach that both ensures internal extensibility and facilitates external components development.

In this presentation we will talk about the framework using both presentation and live coding session, hoping to hear provocative questions sparking a proper, deeply technical discussion.

SPEAKERS: Aleksey Stukalov and Andrey Belyaev

Since 2008, Aleksey participated in multiple enterprise software projects, in positions ranging from a developer to a project manager, leading teams of 50+ developers. He has been involved in the entire development cycle, from architecture design to final delivery of large scale projects for blue chip companies, primarily in the oil & gas industry. This mix of technical and management experience has enabled Aleksey to gain in-depth understanding of business applications development. Aleksey joined the CUBA Platform team in 2013 and has played a key role in R&D, development of the framework features and roadmap.

Andrey started his career in 2001 as a developer in the team that was working on a software for oil producing companies using Oracle's technology stack (PL/SQL, Forms, Reports), and learned Java meanwhile. Since 2006 and till 2018 Andrey has been working for several outsourcing companies. During this period, he participated in various projects - starting from RFID labels tracking to social networks, and was involved in various tasks - from development to architecture design, account management and pre-sales meetings with clients. Now Andrey works as a developer advocate and contributes to the development of CUBA Platform.

Join us as we teach you the fundamentals of HTML & CSS while completing a series of challenges to help you master your new skills.

Together we'll work through a series of drills that will teach you the core concepts of HTML (tags, elements, and attributes) as well as the basics of CSS (selectors, properties, and values). These drills are designed to be challenging, but manageable with the help of your fellow students, our TAs, and the instructor. We'll wrap up the night by giving you a few tips on how to continue learning.

Bring a laptop, and if you don't have one we'll match you up with someone who does.

Eastside Startups Open Coffee

Join us every Wednesday morning for the Eastside's premier entrepreneur, startup and technology networking event.

NOTE: We publicize this event in a number of venues, most people do not RSVP. We get on average about 12-15 people each week, sometimes over 20. If you only see a few people registered don't worry, plenty of folks will be there.

You will meet technology entrepreneurs working on their latest project, those looking to flee the so called Dilbert Cube world and just plain technology folks and local business people.

There is no agenda, dues or anything else, just good conversation and networking. Individuals can get help with their questions and problems as well as find potential partners and those can provide services they need. Lots of referrals for a wide variety of reasons.

Show up when you want, leave when you want. This is a fun networking event, not a meeting you need to be on time for. However, we do introductions early. 

WiFi is available.
