Astronomical NGRX Anti-patterns for Job Security by Reid Villeneuve

How would you like to hear about some well-guarded trade secrets designed to ensure that you will never be fired in a million years? Anti-patterns are the way to go! With you being the only one able to read your code, you will have 'em backed into a corner. Make sure your boss isn't looking before sneaking your way over to my presentation, and then prepare for career immortality!

2nd PRESENTATION by Brian Love and Kevin Schuchard (20 minutes):

Schematics: an untapped frontier (an ng-conf preview)

Schematics can accomplish nearly any task and published by anyone. Whether you want to generate hundreds of dynamic files or update source code, Kevin and Brian will demonstrate how accessible custom schematics are for you or your organization. If you find yourself repeating the same logic, enforcing similar patterns, or performing setup logic, again and again, you’ll take away the tools and understanding necessary to start your schematic learning journey.
