N is for NativeScript at ng-conf

April 28, 2016 — by Jen Looper

Next week, members of Telerik Developer Relations, Product Managers, and Engineering will converge on Utah for ng-conf—the biggest event in the Angular world. NativeScript will have a huge presence at ng-conf and we want to let you know about it!
The Keynote
Burke Holland, Director of Developer Relations, will be giving part of the ng-conf keynote. He’ll be talking about everything new and hot in NativeScript and our integration with Angular 2. Watch the keynote as it happens for exciting announcements from both our team, Google, and the ng-conf staff.


The Session
Developer Advocates TJ VanToll and Jen Looper will give a session on Wednesday, May 4th, from 4:50 - 5:15pm entitled “Sharing Code Between Web and Native Apps”. We’ll be discussing the new world that has opened up, with the integration of NativeScript and Angular 2, to share code between your web and mobile projects. Be ready to be wowed!

The Booth
All conference long, visit our booth to take part in a huge Star Wars themed giveaway. We have some great prizes for you. Stop by, say hi and get information about NativeScript 2.0.

Also as an extra bonus, when you register at the conference, you will receive a special, limited edition ng-conf NativeScript T-Shirt. Wear this shirt Thursday May 5th and come by our booth to take a spin on the big prize wheel. We’ll be giving away awesome prizes and great swag for those T-Shirt wearing booth visitors all day Thursday.
