Learning Visual Studio Code

Do you develop with Angular, JavaScript, TypeScript, Docker, Python, Gulp, or ASP.NET? Do you work on a Mac OSX, Linux, or Windows? Today’s developers work with a variety of languages and platforms, so a good tool is super important. I use an editor for most of my development and have tried Brackets, Atom, Sublime and others, but since the preview of Visual Studio Code (aka Code) was released I’ve been using it increasingly as my go-to editor. I’m excited to announce that you can now watch and learn with my Visual Studio Code course on Pluralsight, released this week. Visual...


Angular and Gulp

Streamlining Angular code is sublime. We can streamline the process of optimizing Angular apps for dependency injections, template caching, and common JavaScript optimizations such as minification, all in preparation for production using build automation tools like Gulp.js. Gulp is based on streams follows the mantra of “code over configuration’. My new course JavaScript Build Automation with Gulp.js was just released on Pluralsight. You can learn how to make your JavaScript do tricks and develop more efficiently, using Gulp in this course. In this course I take you from learning what Gulp does, how to install it on both Windows and a Mac, to building an entire build pipeline step by step. I spend a lot of...


Using Gulp in a JavaScript Build Pipeline

When I can remove the friction between myself and the keyboard, it’s a beautiful thing! I have more time to write code and not worry about repetitive processes. This is a key reason I love having a solid build pipeline and automated tasks in JavaScript. And my tool of choice is Gulp.js. Last year I published my Pluralsight course Angular Patterns: Clean Code and my Angular Style Guide, which go together. I had a lot of folks asking for more information on using Gulp, since these materials both gave a quick glimpse of it. So I decided to release a new course with Pluralsight titled “JavaScript Build Automation with Gulp.js”, due out the end...


Get Up and Running With Node and Visual Studio

If you’ve decided to immerse yourself in modern web development with JavaScript libraries such as AngularJS, Bootstrap, React, or Knockout then you’ve undoubtedly heard of Bower, NPM, Grunt, Gulp, and Node somewhere along the way. If you’ve been meaning to learn them, then this post should help you get started. There are plenty of articles on the topic but I wanted to take a different approach to talk less about what node does and instead show you. So let’s use node to get an app up and running and then try it in Visual Studio. The Landscape Many developers have lived in their own stack for a long time, and very successfully...
