I recently had the opportunity to sit down with my friend John Papa and talk about how Docker can be used to boost Web development productivity. In this Play by Play course on Pluralsight we discuss what Docker is and how you can get started using it by installing Docker Toolbox or Docker for Mac/Windows. We discuss what images and containers are and the role they play, talk about the layered file system, as well as how you can quickly and easily get a full development environment up and running on your dev machine with Docker Compose. This same environment can easily be […]
I’m a huge fan of Docker and am using it a lot in various projects now. In fact the https://blog.codewithdan.com site is running in Docker containers on Azure. Three containers are used and managed with Docker Cloud: nginx container WordPress container MariaDB (MySql) container What’s great about Docker is that I can have a local version of my blog up and running on my dev machine in a matter of minutes and it mirrors production. That makes it easy to test out various WordPress changes (plugin and theme updates for example) rather than trying them on my production server which can be scary! If you’re working […]
I always enjoy talking with the Adventures in Angular podcast hosts – great group of guys. In my latest interview on the show I talk about TypeScript and Angular 2 and our favorite features. Check out the podcast below.
I had the awesome opportunity to speak at ng-conf (one of my favorite conferences) about TypeScript and some of the key features it provides that are used in Angular 2. While several of the features covered are available (and have been available for years) in server-side languages such as C#, Java and others, developers accustomed to writing browser-centric applications haven’t been able to leverage these features in the past. TypeScript provides a great way to take advantage of ES6 features while also providing support for some of the features I discuss in the talk such as interfaces, generics, type support and more. Angular 2 is […]

I use VS Code a lot in my development projects and recently put together a set of Angular 2 TypeScript and HTML snippets that can be used to enhance productivity when building Single Page Applications. By typing a snippet prefix (such as “a2”) in a TypeScript or HTML file you can quickly add the associated code into your file. Here’s a list of the supported snippets: Angular 2 TypeScript Snippets a2bootstrap – Bootstrap snippet a2component – Component snippet a2httpImport – Http module import snippet a2httpMap – Http map() snippet a2inputProperty – @Input property snippet a2outputEvent – @Output event […]
I had the privilege to sit down with Seth Juarez from Channel 9 at the AngleBrackets conference in Las Vegas (fall 2015) and talk about modern web development and the main technologies that drive it. We talked about a lot of different topics ranging from TypeScript, Angular and Aurelia on the client-side to Node.js and ASP.NET 5 on the server-side. Seth’s a great interview host (and a super cool guy to hang out with) and I really enjoyed talking with him about modern technology in today’s world. Check out the interview below. Modern Web Development with Seth Juarez and Dan […]
