Day 02: Saturday, January 28th

Geeks go hard! Never mind the after party on Friday, it's another full day of interesting topics and inspiring ideas. We know you're going to need a little more coffee than usual. We're ready! We promise! Today's sessions occur at The Guild Hall (615 Montgomery Street).

User experience design is the special sauce that makes products intuitive and user-friendly. Its an art that incorporates the sciences of psychology, and anthropology mixed in with graphic design. Learn from these seasoned UI/UX professionals about the process of designing and building products that feel effortless.

Come see several uses of Gulfstream’s Immersive Realities Technologies (that’s AR/VR for short!) at this special part of the Geekend Arcade – it’s free and open to the public!

3D Modeling with the Geekbot

This free and open-to-the public session will teach students the basics of 3D modeling, starting with Geekend’s favorite 3D model, the Geekbot! After the session students will have a file they can take to a 3D printer to make their model come to life.  If you are bringing children, please plan on staying with them for the duration of the event.  Thanks to Shipt for the snacks.

 

Javascript Frameworks are all the rage these days.  It seems like there is always a newer, better framework and its dizzying to keep up with all of the updates.  Join this panel of experienced front end developers that will debate the pros and cons of Angular.JS, Node.JS, React.JS, Meteor as well as the merits of not using any of them.  Panel members will also answer questions from the audience on which framework might be the best fit for your projects.

This event wouldn’t be possible without help from all our friends
