We’ll take a simple web component from idea to implementation, effectively and simultaneously targeting vanilla JS all the way to webpack. The highlights include inputs, events, dependency management, polyfill strategies, performance, payload size, managing updates, and more!
It’s crunch time. The 11th hour. You and your team members are feverishly codin… wait, hmm, that’s a weird error…
Even if you don’t have a catastrophic unexpected loss, at some point you’ll be going through the reload-all-the-things exercise. And, for some developers, rebuilding your development environment is a multi-hour ordeal of installing software, coupled with days of configuration, tweaking, and fixing. If you’re currently browsing, downloading, and manually clicking through installer after installer while dodging unwanted toolbars — there’s a better way!
We’ll explore ideas and techniques for keeping your software and configuration continuously updated and rebuildable. With this, it’ll be a joy to upgrade your machine.
Angular 2 is released! With it comes new opportunities for brilliantly authored and well-tested applications! While tests don’t come free, they’re well worth the time and effort — especially for larger or long-lived codebases.
We’ll explore the full gamut of Angular 2 testing: What to test, how to test, classifications of tests, and the implications and tradeoffs for each of these decisions. Soon you’ll be ready to `npm test` Angular 2 projects with confidence — no Angular 1.x experience required!
