My company - Odecee - has kindly sponsored my attendance of ngConf 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Woo-hoo!

The main things I’d like to get out of the conference are:

  • A deeper understanding of Angular 2.0’s fit and requirements.
    • Do I need to use TypeScript or ATScript to work with it?
    • How will that affect today’s browsers (extra downloads, VMs to make it all work?)?
  • What are the pros/cons of transitioning to ES6 now?
  • What are some different ways that people are modelling their data?
    • I spoke to a dev today who shared how he’s modelling all his views as components, so each component is responsible
      for getting it’s own data. This means that ui-router‘s resolve block is being used, so screens transition
      immediately and then the data loads in afterwards.
      • The view-composed-of-directive-elements is interesting, and sounds like it is more Angular 2.0-ish.
      • It actually reminds me of how I was building UIs in Adobe Flex back-in-the-day. Hmmmmm.
      • You would end up with more service calls (if multiple sibling-components want the same data), but that could be
        managed by caching your API responses.

Live Blog

Over the next few days I’m going to attempt to get answers to some of these questions. And I’m going to semi-live blog
the news from the conference right on this site!

So what do you want to find out?
