• controllerAs and scope modifications in AngularJs

    I was having a conversation with a client recently about how to get dirty checking for a form in angular. This then turned into a conversation about binding from views and how it’s affected by controllerAs.

  • AngularU Day 3

    comments

    On the third day of the AngularU conference in San Francisco my colleage Aaron Starkston @astarkston and I attended a workshop with Andrew Connell @andrewconnell on working with O365 and Azure straight from Sngular written SPAs. Aaron has put together an overview for Rightpoint’s blog.

    …Now for the fun stuff- combining Angular + O365 development. The remaining part of the workshop walks through how to set up the connection between a SPA and O365. There are so many things you can do working with O365 development, and a lot of that can be handled with the REST API. Aaron Starkston @astarkston on Rightpoint.com

  • AngularU Day 2

    comments

    I’ve spent the last 3 days in San Francisco at AngularU larning about some of the new cool stuff going on in that space. Since work paid for me to go, I’ve put together a post on their blog with an overview of day 2. There’s some seriously cool stuff going on, I’m hoping to dive deeper into these in the near future.

    …Straight out of the gate we had the opportunity to hear from Jonathan Turner (developer at Microsoft on the Typescript team) more about Typescript and I’ve got to say… it’s awesome.

    I’ve spent the last 3 days in San Francisco at AngularU larning about some of the new cool stuff going on in that space. Since work paid for me to go, I’ve put together a post on their blog with an overview of day 1.

    …The opening keynote from Igor Minar, Brad Green and Misko Hevery gave a great overview of where we’re sitting with Angular 2 currently. What really came out of this is that one of the biggest improvements that’s coming is speed. Running under angular 2, rendering speed is sitting at about 3x faster than its counterpart running under angular 1.x. The way they’re doing this is by utilising web workers for most of the framework and application code (anything that doesn’t directly touch the DOM) which will parallelize a lot of the framework and application work, removing the bottleneck that is the browsers event loop.

    I received an email from a developer recently asking about some code I had authored which was along the lines of:

  • Front end tooling for the .Net developer

    comments

    Yet another way that where I work (Rightpoint) is awesome is that there’s an ingrained culture of sharing what we know within and without. As Part of that we’re encouraged to put posts about things that we think might be useful on the company blog. Today I did just that.

    I like living in git bash on windows, however I also sometimes really need to jump into visual studio or sublime, so below are the two commands I run in git bash to add the shortcuts into bash.

  • CS0135: 'Model' conflicts with the declaration 'System.Web.Mvc.WebViewPage.Model'

    After adding a declaration to pipe in some text from our model in a view in one of our MVC apps:

    While working on a small feature for something at work today I needed to add a field in to one of our domain entities. It really was a tiny change:

    public DateTime? LastUpdated { get; private set; }
