Behind the Scenes: Angular and ASP.NET Core Pluralsight Course Kickoff Video! 1

I’ve had several people over the years ask about my workflow as I create video courses for Pluralsight and other sites so I thought I’d provide some details. Since I’m starting a brand new course for Pluralsight (Integrating Angular with ASP.NET Core RESTful Services) I filmed a few details about my equipment setup and also did a live recording (with bloopers!) of one of the video clips that will be used in the course. I know a lot of people are either interested in getting into video or simply want to know what really happens behind the scenes so I hope […]


10 Angular and TypeScript Projects to Take You From Zero to Hero 11

There are a lot of great samples and posts out there to help get you started with Angular (version 2 or higher) as well as ES6/ES2015 and TypeScript. However, some are out of date, some may be more complex than you want to start with, and others have been abandoned and are no longer maintained. In this post I’m going to provide a list of 10 Angular/TypeScript projects that I’ve created that can take you from “Zero to Hero” if you like to explore project code and are interested in investing the time to learn. The projects are listed in […]


New Pluralsight Course – Integrating Angular with Node.js RESTful Services 10

  I’m excited to announce the release of a new course on Pluralsight titled Integrating Angular with Node.js RESTful Services! This covers Node.js 6.10 or higher and Angular 4 or higher. In this 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. If you’ve wondered about how Angular services work, how to organize modules, the role of Observables and RxJS in async operations, how Angular’s Http client can be used to make async calls, how […]


Video – TypeScript: Angular 2’s Secret Weapon

I had the awesome opportunity to speak at ng-conf (one of my favorite conferences) about TypeScript and some of the key features it provides that are used in Angular 2. While several of the features covered are available (and have been available for years) in server-side languages such as C#, Java and others, developers accustomed to writing browser-centric applications haven’t been able to leverage these features in the past. TypeScript provides a great way to take advantage of ES6 features while also providing support for some of the features I discuss in the talk such as interfaces, generics, type support and more. Angular 2 is […]


Yet Another Podcast Interview: TypeScript and Angular 2

I recently had the opportunity to chat with my good friend Jesse Liberty on his Yet Another Podcast show about TypeScript and the role it can play in JavaScript-centric applications. We talked about the benefits that TypeScript offers (much more than just strong “types”) as well as how TypeScript fits into the overall Angular 2 picture. Jesse’s an experienced podcast host who asks great questions and makes it easy to chat about any subject – TypeScript in this case! You can listen to the interview here.

We talked about a lot of different topics ranging from TypeScript, Angular and Aurelia on the client-side to Node.js and ASP.NET 5 on the server-side. Seth’s a great interview host (and a super cool guy to hang out with) and I really enjoyed talking with him about modern technology in today’s world. Check out the interview below.
