Angular Workshop and an Xbox One?

If you want to learn how to build a SPA with Angular with me (and get an Xbox One), register for my SPA workshop at AngleBrackets and DEVIntersection and use code PAPA to get $50 off the conference registration!

Ward Bell (1 brilliant mind behind Breeze) will be guest starring and frankly there isn’t a data or business problem on Earth that he can’t solve (or at least I haven’...


Free Video: SPA Primer with Durandal, Knockout and Breeze

I had the fortune to join a cast of heavy hitters at the free DotNetConf live event. My session was a 50 minute primer on SPA that tells a story about what a SPA can do.

We sat down together, along with my friend Ward Bell, and we discussed the state of SPA today and the new Visual Studio templates. It was a very casual conversation between the 5 of us discussing a SPA from many angles. It’s a good listen for anyone who may share some of the same questions we posed and tried to answer in the podcast. You can download...
