ngAir Podcast: Containerizing Angular Apps with Docker

I had the opportunity to chat with Justin, Bonnie, Alyssa, and Austin about Angular and Docker on the ngAir podcast recently and really enjoyed talking with everyone. We talked about the benefits of containers from a developer and DevOps standpoint, how to create custom images with Dockerfiles, how to build/push/pull images, and how to run containers. We of course focused on the role that containers can play with Angular applications but the concepts apply to any front-end app (or back-end app for that matter). Here are some of the key links mentioned in the podcast: ​Containerizing Angular Apps with Docker […]


New Pluralsight Course: Containerizing Angular Applications with Docker

I’m excited to announce the release of my next course on Pluralsight titled Containerizing Angular Applications with Docker! This course walks you through the process of containerizing front-end applications (with a focus on Angular) using Docker images and containers. Here are a few questions this course will help you answer: Why “containerize” front-end applications? Should I consider using a CDN? How can I serve front-end applications created with Angular (or other libraries/frameworks) using nginx? How do I create a custom Dockerfile and custom image for my application? What is a multi-stage build and how can I use it to build […]

“Containerizing” Angular with Docker: My ng-conf Talks and Overall Experience

ng-conf 2018 is officially over….too bad it can’t go on forever. It’s such a great conference that you don’t want it to end. In addition to hearing a lot of high-quality talks from the Angular team and other awesome speakers, I had the opportunity to hang out with John Papa a lot (one of my best friends) as well as several other close friends, and made many new friends throughout the week as well (thanks to my buddy Brian Clark for the picture to the right). Here’s a little information about the conference and my overall experience. If you’re only interested in videos […]


New Pluralsight Course: Integrating Angular with ASP.NET Core RESTful Services

I’m excited to announce the release of my new course on Pluralsight titled Integrating Angular with ASP.NET Core RESTful Services! This course follows up my previous course which focused on Angular and Node.js. The code in this new class covers ASP.NET Core 2.0 or higher and Angular 4 or higher. As with my previous course, I’ll walk you through the process of using Angular to call into RESTful services and perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations in an application to allow a user to view and modify data. However, in this course the services are built using C# and […]


Q&A with Silicon Prairie News About Docker Containers

I had the opportunity to talk with Silicon Prairie News about Docker and some of the key benefits it offers. They interviewed me ahead of the Heartland Developer Conference (HDC) event where I’ll be giving a keynote titled “Docker Containers: What Every Developer Should Know”. The questions they asked in the interview included: How long have you been working with Docker? Can you briefly explain Docker for developers and readers who may not have a current understanding of what it does? Do you think this is something that all developers should at least be educating themselves on even if they […]
