We had a little break for the end of the summer, but now we are ready to rock with 4 amazing Angular lightning talks from 4 of the top experts in the Angular community.
Talk #1: Learn Angular the Hard Way
Are you ready to learn Angular and don't know where to start? Do you have a team that needs to learn Angular? It's hard to determine where to start or where to head after you've conquered the NgModule. Let me guide you through the Angular maze by providing you a learning path and great resources along the way.
Talk #2: ngx-datagrid - A New Data Table Enters The Ring
Data tables are the most complicated off-the-self components used in most web apps today. They are super powerful components that summarize large amounts of data and make it manageable and actionable. How do we make sure these components are performant and remain so as they use more features and bind more data? In this talk, we will discuss McGraw-Hill’s recently open sourced ngx-datagrid and how it is able to maintain silky smooth scrolling through millions of data points.
Rico dos Santos is a lover of all things js mv*. As a lead software engineer at McGraw-Hill Education he creates web apps with Angular; most recently working on an a11y friendly shared component library and ngx-datagrid.
Talk #3: Happier Unit Testing with Jest
While Jasmine and Karma are the default testing framework in the CLI, there are alternatives, and one of those is Jest, a great testing library that makes it very easy to test components. It is fast, has built-in coverage reports, works with TypeScript, has an amazing CLI, and it has an API compatible with Jasmine. We’ll cover how you can set it up and how you can use it and be a happier and more productive developer.
Talk #4: Visual Regression Testing in Angular
Want to stop raising layout related bugs in large apps and shared libraries? Tired of having full regression tests run by QA and UX verification? Automated visual-regression tests will allow you to detect changes in your apps layout as part of your CI/CD pipeline using tools already in your repo.
