I’m excited to announce the release of my next course on Pluralsight titled Angular Architecture and Best Practices! The goal of this course is to provide you with solid, proven guidance to plan out your Angular application architecture, address various challenges that typically come up, and ultimately create a more maintainable and flexible application. Here are a few questions this course will help you answer: Is there one “right” way to architect and build an Angular application? Short answer – NO! What are some key concepts I should consider when planning my application architecture? Is there any type of planning […]
About a year ago I was browsing the web and came across a site called Scrimba.com. It provided a unique way to learn about web technologies through a live code editor combined with audio that syncs with the code – something you have to actually try out to realize the full potential. Since I do a lot of training for companies the Scrimba tool really caught my eye. I was so impressed with the features Scrimba provided that I decided to contact the creators (Per Harald Borgen and Sindre Aarsaether) to let them know that I thought the tool they had […]
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 […]
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 […]
Angular 6 is out and it offers some great new functionality in the CLI and overall framework. One of the biggest new features (IMO anyway) is the CLIs support for schematics and the ng new library command to create and publish libraries (a big pain point that is now simplified). But, I digress….this post is about upgrading an application. Click here if you want a quick look at all of the great new features. I have a large project I’m working on that’s still in development so I decided to take the plunge and try out some of the new features to […]
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 […]
I had the chance to talk with This Dot Media at ng-conf 2017 about TypeScript, Angular, Docker and more. It was a fun discussion that covered a lot of material in 15 minutes.
