Getting your head around the modern web


“An immersive experience for .NET developers”. It will start off touching on many of the hot topics and trends for the browser including Angular 2, TypeScript, React.js, Ember, Electron, etc. Then it will go into a follow-along demonstration of building a browser app with those technologies (not a lab per-se since we won’t be waiting on people to catch up or have helpers available to get everyone through the coursework). In the second half, we’ll discuss hot services topics and trends including Node.js, WebAPI, containers and cloud platforms (AWS and Azure). It will finish up with a follow-along demonstration of building the back end services and connecting the browser app to them.
