Angular 2 QuickStart with Ward Bell

Recently I had a great opportunity to sit down with my good friend and expert Angular developer Ward Bell to film a Play by Play for Pluralsight on Angular 2. You can watch Ward and I build an Angular 2 app from scratch, and see us explaining the decisions we make as the code unfolds. Here is the description of the video with us ... In this video, Curious about getting started in Angular 2? This Play by Play will get you up and running in under two hours. In this course, Angular experts John Papa and Ward Bell build an Angular 2 app from scratch. You’ll learn about the various options for spinning up an Angular 2 app, including...


Why Angular 2 ? A Rapid Fire Q&A Session

Why should we be using Angular 2? What's all the chatter about? It can be difficult to keep up with the fast paced Web, so we all need tools to help us filter out the noise and focus on the things that add value. That was our intention behind this webcast on Angular 2 from Pluralsight. We had such a large attendance that we all nearly broke the webcasting tool. Seriously. OK, so that never should have happened, but lesson learned. Not to worry, though. We covered a lot of ground on why we should all be looking at Angular 2 and some extremely valuable tools like the Angular 2 style guide, code snippets, CLI, and codelyzer. Q&A...


17 Minute Angular 2 App

Last week I had the privilege of coding an Angular 2 app in front of the live audience at the 3rd annual ngConf event. I had a lot of fun and, perhaps luckily, I didn't make any major mistakes :) More importantly, I believe this session shines a light on the seven most fundamental aspects that we need to build an Angular 2 app. Modules Components Templates Data Binding Structural Directives Services Dependency Injection Watch the video of my session, An Angular 2 Force Awakens, here. If you enjoyed this, please join me and Dan Wahlin at our full day Angular 2 workshop in Barcelona in July. We all love tools that help use code more efficiently, so stick around for...


Angular 2 ngFor

Have you tried ngFor in Angular 2? I bet you have. If you try the Angular 2 release candidate or later, you may have noticed a pervasive change that affects nearly every early adopter of Angular 2. The syntax changed very subtly. The new syntax is super easy to refactor. However being inquisitive like we are, my friend Ward Bell and I wondered why it was made. This post helps explain why the late change happened based on our perceptions. Most of this post came directly from my friend Ward's thoughts. I suggested it was awesome and useful information and requested he let me post it. He agreed. And here we are :) Overview of *ngFor and ref- Here are the...


Angular 2 Tutorial - QuickStart to Routing

The Tour of Heroes tutorial takes us through the steps of creating an Angular application in TypeScript. You can start the Tour of Heroes tutorial here. img[alt=heroes] { height=100px; width:100px} We tackle new technologies often, probably more often that we prefer. We are pressured to get up to speed on these technologies as quickly as possible. Often the technology fights back at us with awful or no documentation. Sometimes the documentation is wonderful for APIs but no so great at showing us how to think about building an app. I have a passion for Angular 2 and JavaScript so when the Angular team and Ward Bell were designing the docs at http://angular.io and they approached...
