Polymer: a different way to build web by GDG Pitești Meetup

We were really excited to come back to GDG Pitești community and join the first 2016 Meetup. It was really a great experience! 30 web developers and IT&C students, curious to learn new things, signed up for this Meetup. Our voice by this event was Bogdan Nourescu, who delivered a presentation about Polymer. Bogdan is a senior web developer very passionate about Polymer who joined the 2015 Polymer Summit organized by Google in Amsterdam.

Polymer it is a library for building Web Components

For any cool web developer Polymer is a new way of thinking about building web applications, a sugaring layer on top of Web Components, making it easy for you to create inter-operable custom elements. These elements can then be put together to create app-like immersive experiences on the web.

Our trainer Bogdan Nourescu has shown GDG Pitești members how you can rethink the way you develop web apps with Polymer. He presented to the audience a demo for a project built with Polymer, explained Polymer fundamentals, and continued with a more detailed picture on how you can build and customize your own web components (e.g. containers for new and awesome elements, encapsulated CSS properties, encapsulated Javascript interaction, how to define an API to interact with the elements). The presentation conveyed also how you can use web components created by Polymer Google team or other developers, including examples of apps built with Polymer (e.g. Santa Tracker) and Polymer resources to learn more.

The attendees of GDG Pitești Meetup who were very active during the event and not shy with questions, received stickers from the organizers. Also, one Android t-shirt, was the prize for a an attendee who posted a funny picture from the meeting and got the highest number of likes on Facebook, as well as for the attendee who addressed the coolest question to Bogdan, during his Polymer presentation.
