Angular Connect 2015: The “REAL” Angular 2 Keynote

AngularConnect 2015

Intro

I really truly love the Angular community. I am talking about a group that continually pushes me to try new things and get out of my comfort zone. I am still amazed that I can get in front of such a passionate group of folks and share my ideas while doing some pretty zany things in the process. I had the amazing privilege of presenting with the infamous Shai Reznik at AngularConnect 2015, and it was such a fun experience!

We wanted to do an over the top parody of some other very memorable keynotes, and I apologize that we may have given the impression that we were actually giving a real keynote. Apologies for the confusion! Sorry, mom!

Underneath the jokes, there was a really serious point that Shai and I wanted to make. Now is an amazing time to be an Angular developer because we have better tooling and a better language; this is the foundation for a better framework which makes it easier than ever to build better things faster.

I have included a resource list that will come in handy for new developers checking out Angular 2. Check out our wacky and fun presentation and if you like it be sure to leave Shai a love note in the comments!
