Alpha Testers Wanted for Progressive Web App Tools for VS Code

I love the Web and I love tools that make creating awesome things for the Web easier! When creating Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) there are a lot of options. So it just makes sense to create an extension for VS Code to help design PWAs. As the title mentions, this is an alpha. I'd love some of your help to test this extension. Give it a run through and see what we might want to change, add, remove, or document further. My first cut at this extension can be found here. Please refer to the GitHub repo to create any issues. I will iterate on this extension a few times, til I have something that is useful to the wider...


Essential Angular VS Code Extensions

When it comes to efficient and effective development experiences, excellent tooling makes all the difference. That's why I love VS Code. VS Code has a great extensibility model, which makes it easy to create awesome extensions that enhance the development experience. It's no secret that I love shortcuts and I don't love memorizing syntax ... which is why I created my snippets for Angular. It's been quite popular with over 500,000 downloads, but it's certainly not the only extension I use. I am often asked, "What are you favorite VS Code extensions for Angular?". I decided it was time to share them via an extension pack. Introducing my Angular Essentials extension pack for VS Code. By installing this extension pack...

My Angular First Look course is now updated for v4.0.0+ and available on Pluralsight. The course is titled "Angular 2 First Look" but it covers the latest in v4 ( course titles are not updatable).

The name Angular refers to anything version 2.0.0 or greater. AngularJS refers to version 1. In this course, you will learn how your AngularJS skills translate and prepare you to build Angular (v4) applications. Code samples focus on specific features including Angular components, templates directives, data...


Introducing Angular Modules - Feature Modules

The @NgModule is a new decorator that has recently been added in Angular 2. NgModule defines an Angular Module, which (from the official docs) are defined as "Angular Modules help organize an application into cohesive blocks of functionality." This post is the third in a series that introduce @NgModule and its role in creating Angular 2 apps. In this post I'll discuss some motivations for creating feature modules. Angular Modules Series Introducing NgModule and the Root Module Routing Module Feature Modules Shared/Core Modules Eager and Lazy Loading I'm currently updating my Angular 2 First Look course on Pluralsight for this and other new topics. Be sure to check back later this Fall. Features Often our apps have discrete sets...


Introducing Angular Modules - Routing Module

The @NgModule is a new decorator that has recently been added in Angular 2. NgModule defines an Angular Module, which (from the official docs) are defined as "Angular Modules help organize an application into cohesive blocks of functionality." This post is the second in a series that introduce @NgModule and its role in creating Angular 2 apps. In this post I'll discuss some motivations for creating multiple modules, some decisions we have to make regarding them, and how routing fits into modules.
