Hands-On with Angular2

5:30 PM - 6:00 PM Food & Networking (food delivered ~5:45 PM)

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Presentation

The Topic:

JavaScript is taking over web development.  The little scripting language created 20 years ago (in 10 days, no less) has turned into a legitimate tool for everything from corporate websites to native mobile applications to web servers.


The shift from minor web scripting language to multi-purpose powerhouse has brought on an explosion of new JavaScript frameworks and libraries.  There are many different ones currently available, with more popping up each day.


How on earth are you supposed to pick one?  Will the framework/library/toolset/whatever even be around in six months?  Will it continue to be maintained?  Does anyone know about it on StackOverflow? (Don't laugh, we all know this is important.)


Angular 2 is one of the few frameworks that actually checks all of those boxes.  Created by a team at Google, Angular is definitely not your standard open-source project.  A full team is continuing to improve and refine the framework, and don't worry, StackOverflow is full of questions (almost 20K) and answers.


But what if you're really not interested in web development?  Notice how I mentioned "native mobile applications"?  There are a number of mobile app development frameworks that use JavaScript in one way or another.  This includes NativeScript and Ionic 2, which both can use Angular2 to build actual, native apps.


We're going to walk through a sample Angular2 web app, which will contain concepts you'll easily be able to transfer over to NativeScript or Ionic2.

The Speaker:

Michael Fazio is a Senior Software Engineer with Skyline Technologies. Focusing on web and mobile development, Fazio has an affinity for Android, open source, design patterns, and randomizers. He can be found in Waukesha discussing IoT, setting up lunches, and dreaming about creating a sports-themed incremental game.
