Docker Volumes and “print working directory” Command Syntax

I often use Docker to run an application in a container as I’m writing and testing code. That involves creating a volume that points the container to a path on my machine. The challenge with setting up volumes is that the “print working directory” command that is often used to easily identify the location of your source code on the host machine is different depending on what command terminal you’re using (especially on Windows). Here’s a quick summary that shows the syntax for “print working directory” in different command terminals when using volumes (if you’re new to volumes you can read […]


“Containerizing” Angular with Docker

I had the opportunity to speak at the AngularMix conference in Orlando about something that I think every developer should learn more about – containers.

5 Key Benefits of Angular and TypeScript 16

  Over the past few months, I’ve been asked the same general question about Angular multiple times in onsite training classes, while helping customers with their architecture, or when talking with company leaders about the direction web technologies are heading. Here’s the general question: “What are the key benefits that Angular and TypeScript can offer our development teams?” It’s a great question and one that should be asked before jumping into any new technology or framework. Most of the people asking are technology managers or directors interested in understanding the benefits that Angular can offer their teams (both technical and non-technical). […]
