Adventures In Angular, Episode 85: Looking At Angular 2 With Ben Nadel

By

Last week, I was both humbled and honored to be welcome back on the Adventures in Angular podcast. As a long time fanboy of Angular, this episode - 85 - was about learning Angular 2 (Beta) from the perspective of someone who is intimately familiar with AngularJS 1.x. While a crude metaphor, I describe the journey as somewhat akin to having a stroke; suddenly, all of the things that I know and take for granted have to be re-learned from scratch.

Listen: Looking at Angular 2 with Ben Nadel

Overall, learning Angular 2 Beta has been a rather steep uphill climb. But, to be honest, I am totally loving it. While parts of Angular 2 are frustrating and continue to elude me, there is a lot that just works well (and can be very fast). I don't anticipate upgrading existing systems to Angular 2; but, I can definitely see starting new applications with Angular 2 (and yes, TypeScript).

My Picks

I picked the following articles and videos because, to me, they fall under the same general category of keeping code simple, pragmatic, and developer friendly. To me, the follow are where we, as engineers, start to differentiate "knowledge" from "wisdom."

Such good, much wow!

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
