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...


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...
