Angular Expert Lightning Talks

Oct 24, 2018 · Boston, United States of America

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.

Tara Z. Manicsic is a lifelong student, teacher, and maker. She has spent her career using JavaScript on both back-end and front-end to create applications. A Developer Advocate for Progress, Google Developer Expert, and international technical speaker, she focuses on conveying the codebase she has learned. In her free time she works in her community to educate and learn from other developers. Tara launched & directs the Cincinnati Chapter of Women Who Code and the Cincinnati branch of NodeSchool. Beyond code, Tara still makes things but with solder, clay, or wool and hikes any mountain she can get to with her trusty sidekick, #toshmagosh.


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.

Victor Mejia is a Senior UI Engineer and Instructor. He currently works at McGraw-Hill Education, and also authors content for LinkedIn Learning. He advocates and teaches modern JavaScript development practices with test-driven and performance-driven approaches. He's a happy husband and dad of two beautiful children.


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.
