Building & Validating Data Entry Forms in AngularJS – Cape Fear .NET User Group

I took the two-ish hour drive down I-40 to Wilmington, NC recently and presented this session to enthusiastic group at the May Cape Fear .NET User Group monthly meeting. I had a wonderful time and I think they assembled masses actually learned something.  :-)  This is the session description:

AngularJS, it's all the rage these days and it's the biggest thing in the JavaScript world since JQuery. Have you heard of it? If you're a web developer odds are you've heard of it and if you haven't you will the next time you go looking for a job. In this presentation you will learn about something at the heart of most line-of-business applications, creating data entry forms. Come join us and learn about working with data entry form controls, data validation attributes, determining if the user has interacted with a control, determining if an entry is valid or invalid, determining which specific data validation error has occurred, creating client-side business rules and applying CSS styles to provide a visual indicator of a control's data entry status. You will also learn where to find more information and additional guidance on taking your next steps on the road to building AngularJS applications.

Thanks to everyone who attended. I had a great time.

The slides are available here.

Have a day.

AngularJS: What’s the Big Deal - Spark Conference Presentation

I was fortunate enough to make the cut and be selected as one of the speakers are the Spark Conference on June 6th, 2015. I presented my AngularJS: What’s the Big Deal? session to an engaged and lively audience. This is the session description:

AngularJS, it’s all the rage these days and it's the biggest thing in the JavaScript world since JQuery. Have you heard of it? I’m betting you have if you're a web developer. If you haven’t heard of it, you will the next time you go looking for a job. Perhaps you're a CTO or software development manager and you're wondering if your team should be using AngularJS. In either case, developer or manager, maybe your knowledge is limited to knowing it’s a single-page application framework from Google. Don’t know much else about it? Not to worry. Attend this session and you will learn about the wonderfulness that is AngularJS and there is plenty to learn. You will walk away from this session having learned about directives, views, models, controllers, two-way data binding, expressions, filters, data validation, routing and modules from plenty of code-centric demos. You will also learn where to find more information and additional guidance on taking your next steps on the road to building your first AngularJS application. Web developers with a solid foundation in HTML & JavaScript will benefit most from this session but even newbie web developers will benefit from this introduction to AngularJS.

Thanks everyone who attended my session and made me feel welcome in Charlotte. Also want to thank the Spark Conference team for putting on a great event. I’m hoping they’ll have me back next year.

You’ll find my slides here.

Have a day.

ASP.NET 5: What’s the Big Deal - Triangle .NET Users Group Presentation

I presented this session to a packed house at the June Triangle .NET Users Group (TRINUG) meeting last week and had a great time. I got hit with plenty of questions and hopefully I answered them to everyone’s satisfaction. I think I even saw some light bulbs illuminate over a few attendee heads and that’s always a good thing.  This is the session description:

ASP.NET 5 is the next version of the incredibly popular ASP.NET platform and it’s one of the most significant architectural updates ever made to ASP.NET.  How significant you ask? How about the ability to build cross-platform modern web apps that run on Windows, Linux and the Mac for starters. How about being able to build truly modular, lean, modern web apps that only use the system components that your application needs to use instead of using a large, monolithic library.

There are 3 major changes being introduced in ASP.NET 5 including a new file based project system, a new cloud optimized core CLR, and the unification of MVC & Web API into ASP.NET MVC 6. In this presentation you will learn about what the future holds for ASP.NET 5 and how you can begin to get ready for it.

Thanks to everyone who attended. I had a great time.

The slides are available here.

Have a day.
