Like our April meetup, the May event took place a couple of weeks early as once again we had a special guest - Salesforce Developer Evangelist Christophe Coenraets was in town and gave a talk on Angular, Ionic and Heroku Connect. We also had a change of venue, as the event was kindly hosted by Appirio at their West End offices.
Some I found very interesting was that Christophe was running his presentation from Salesforce1 application using his Keypoint1 application:
After some slides on mobile application architecture, Christophe then live-built a simple Ionic application and walked us through how to integrate that presentation layer with AngularJS. Finally, he showed us Heroku Connect (this first time I’ve seen this, although I’ve read a lot about it) and a customer loyalty application built on all of these technologies.
After a break for beer and pizza, of which there was plenty:
The next meetup is will be announced on the London Salesforce Develoeprs Meetup Group - if you are a Salesforce developer based in or around London, make sure to sign up as a member.
