February 2016 ***Not Beginner*** Meetup

Effortless REST API with Astro Javascript Framework

Anyone with basic HTML knowledge (no programming skills required) should be able to use the WordPress REST API with the help of Astro. Astro (http://getastro.github.io/Astro/, https://github.com/getastro)is an open source Javascript framework that renders JSON content, only using HTML.

Astro displays WordPress content anywhere that HTML is supported. The demo will include a web app, a native app and Digital Signage (Link and source to each example will be provided).

Presented by: Hector Jarquin and Ting Yang. Ting is a software developer that enjoys building web applications and exploring emerging technologies .Hector works in communications creating content, graphics and interfaces that are accessed via multiple devices and channels.
