Dive into the world of ElectronJS w/Erick Smith

Hi JavaScriptLA fans, we are pleased to be hosting another ElectronJS based meetup.

Do you know Javascript/CSS/HTML? Ever wanted to use those skills to build a cross-platform desktop application that can run on all three major OS (Linux/Windows/Mac)? Then let’s dive into the world of ElectronJS!

In this upcoming talk, we’re going to take an introductory look into building desktop applications written in Javascript with ElectronJS. We’ll talk about what makes up Electron, get a view of how it runs under the hood, the pros and cons of why you might want to use it, and look at some of the common mistakes that can be made when starting out.
