Coming Soon: Real Talk Podcast

Remember that time you had that bug that too took you an all-nighter to solve? And that time when you first saw hot-reloading work and it saved you tons of time when making sure your website looked right? We all have real life development stories we tell each other about the good and bad struggles we faced, and how we ultimately came to overcome them. Often these experiences define why we choose to use the technologies that we use today. We think it would be great to share these stories with everyone. Real Talk JavaScript We're excited to announce we've created a new podcast titled Real Talk JavaScript. It will be on all the major podcast channels starting October 2,...


Angular CLI Course Updated for v6

I recently updated my course on the Angular CLI with Pluralsight course (August 31, 2018) and I'd like to share what changed with y'all. I estimate about 80% of the clips were re-recorded and are new. All modules were updated, but starting with module 2 "Angular CLI Setup and Verification" through the final module, "Tooling Features", were almost entirely updated or replaced. I ran all of the commands and recorded all-new audio and video for these, and updated all of the code demos (you can find those in the exercise files for download). Some changes are due to how the CLI has evolved, and others are showing all new features. Throughout these modules there are changes including, but not limited...


Pushing Node.js to Azure While You Make Your Coffee

Many of us enjoy our coffee in the morning ... or late afternoon ... or whenever we can get a dose of "wake me up". It takes just a few minutes. But those are also precious minutes away from the keyboard where I feel most productive. Often I run a process when I go to make my coffee, but so many take so long that it is nice when I can get something done in just a few seconds or minutes. I've been using this relatively new command for Azure called az webapp up. It pushes my node.js apps up to Azure without asking me a ton of questions. Run it in a folder and give it a name and boom!...


OBS for Twitch

Do you want to start Twitching? One of the keys is using software that allows you to send your stream to Twitch. For a lot of folks that means using OBS. Disclaimer: This worked as of August 2018 and as with all things tech related, things change rapidly. If something doesn't work for you, leave a comment and we'll try to keep it up to date together. Once you set up OBS you can have fun adding scenes and sources for the stream. This post will focus on the OBS setup, itself - as shown on a Mac. Brian Clark helped me craft this post. You can check out Brian's Twitch stream here. I did an experiment in Twitching earlier...
