Angular 2: Visual Studio Installfest

With the release of Angular 2 approaching, you may be wondering how to get started using it with your favorite IDE, Visual Studio. This hands-on session will focus on how to accomplish that and position you to get started using Angular 2 for your upcoming .NET projects.

We will be walking through this guide on the Angular site -- https://angular.io/docs/ts/latest/cookbook/visual-studio-2015.html
Bring your laptop with Visual Studio 2015 installed.
If beforehand you can also install the latest version of Node.js and download the QuickStart source from Github (see the guide for links and instructions) that would be nice but not necessary.

Kevin Hennessy is a Senior Software Engineer with Applied Information Sciences (AIS). He has over 17 years of experience as a developer, team lead and solutions architect working on web-based projects using the Microsoft technology stack. He has spoken at code camps and user groups on a range of topics, including Angular 2, Meteor and Knockout. He is currently co-authoring a book -- Angular 2 by Example -- that will be published shortly.

ASP.NET Core is a major advancement for web development on the Microsoft stack. It brings a whole new modern development paradigm with a brand new modular and lightweight framework that is cloud-ready and cross-platform. However, it’s also a major deviation on some of the traditional patterns Microsoft web developers have become familiar with over the years, which means it’s very important to start learning these new technologies now. In this demo-heavy presentation, we will cover numerous topics including startup and middleware, new Web API features, the new Dependency Injection system, tag helpers, view components, and much more!

Speaker: Steve Michelotti

Steve Michelotti is a Microsoft ASP.NET MVP and a contributing author for Pluralsight training. In addition, Steve is a frequent presenter at developer user groups, conferences, and Code Camps along the East Coast and holds the MCSD, MCPD, and MCT certifications.
