SOIS students step-up their app development skills at local tech event

Last week, representatives of Northwestern Mutual and LearnVest gave a presentation on mobile app development to Milwaukee-area tech affiliates, including a sizable contingent of SOIS students. The presentation was entitled “Demystifying Redux & Observable State with MobX,” and was held at The Box, an event space in Downtown Milwaukee, on Wednesday, November 15th.

Redux and MobX are advanced open-source JavaScript libraries for front-end web developers. They can be used to build powerful apps with many of moving pieces and complex interactions. The presentations gave practical tips, highlighting good patterns and best practices around real-world implementation. Among the SOIS students in attendance were members of the 240 Learning Living Community and SOIS exchange students from the Zhejiang Police College in Taiwan. Event moderator Paz Chentnik acknowledged and thanked SOIS and the students for their participation in the event.
