Angular 1 from JavaScript to TypeScript

Recently I had a great opportunity to sit down with brilliant and humble friend Chris Martin to film a Play by Play video for Pluralsight. Chris had an Angular 1 app he had written in ES5 and wanted to convert it to TypeScript. We decided to try the conversation live while filming (what could go wrong?!). The keys for us were to tackle it in a methodical way such that we could see it running as we did the conversion and to have transpilation, linting and tooling help along the way. You can watch us on this venture as we had a lot of fun exploring how to tackle this conversion. Here is the description of the video with me...


Angular 2 First Look

My Angular 2 First Look course is now available on Pluralsight. This course is a gentle introduction to the changes that Angular 2 brings, how they compare to Angular 1, and provides an understanding of the architecture and how the core concepts work together to build applications. You will learn how your Angular 1 skills translate and prepare you to build Angular 2 applications. Code samples focus on specific features including Angular 2 components, templates directives, data binding syntax, modules, dependency injection, routing, HTTP, pipes, and services. All samples are written in TypeScript and run live on the web where you can see and edit them with a click of a button; no setup required. We launch the demos directly...


Angular Internationalization

Recently I had a great opportunity to sit down with my good friend and expert i18n developer Brian Clark to build internationalization into an Angular app. You can watch us build the app here at Pluralsight. Internationalization is a powerful way to provide a better experience for users around the world by translating applications into local languages. Brian creates an Angular 1 app from scratch using Hot Towel. He then shows how to integrate the popular angular-translate library, add multiple languages to an application, and discusses the options for changing languages in an application. The cool part about i18n is that it’s fairly straight-forward to add internationalization in your own Angular applications. You can download the exercise files...


Building an ASP.NET Core App

Recently I had a great opportunity to sit down with my good friend and expert web developer Shayne Boyer. We challenged Shayne to take ASP.NET Core out for a test drive and build it with an Angular 1 front end from scratch. Shayne did a great job walking through this and explaining the new parts of ASP.NET Core as we built it out. You can watch Shayne in action here. Here is the description of the video with me and Shayne … In this video, Shayne Boyer shows how to build a web app with ASP.NET Core 1.0 from scratch, in real time. Since ASP.NET Core works cross-platform, Shayne develops and runs the app entirely...


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...
