For about 15 years I specialized in Web programming of one sort or another (writing half a dozen books and, more recently, half a dozen Pluralsight courses) and for the past two years, I’ve added Xamarin.
These two interests came together this month. I had the privilege of presenting at Evolve (the largest mobile conference) and then I had the pleasure of attending NG-Conf, the largest conference on Angular.
The schedule and speakers were great, and the excitement and energy in the Keynotes was terrific.
NG Conf is interesting because Wednesday and Friday are single-track, with each presentation lasting 20 minutes. This causes (forces?) the presenters to get to the point and not to waste any time at all.
Angular 2 is a very exciting development in front-end Web technology. It is quite different from, and in my opinion a significant improvement over Angular 1.
Stay tuned for more details on Angular 2 as it settles down and nears version 1.0.
