Spencer Schneidenbach
Getting Started with Angular 2 and TypeScript

The web world has become increasingly more complex over the past few years. The demand for fast, fluid single page applications (or SPAs) has gone up, along with the seemingly endless number of frameworks used to build them. The most popular among them, Angular 1, took the SPA world by storm seven years ago. Since then, it’s been adopted by many developers and firms looking to build rich, feature-fill applications for the web, mobile, and beyond.

Angular 2 looks to continue that trend with a library that is more performant, lighter, and easier to use. In this session, we’ll learn about components, directives, services, and dependency injection, as well as the new Angular 2 syntax. We’ll also learn about TypeScript, Microsoft’s open source superset of JavaScript that enables fast, fluid, fun, and safe development. Learn about some of the features of TypeScript that enable us to rapidly develop and easily maintain Angular 2 applications with ease, including classes, decorators, and compile-time type checking.

Spencer Schneidenbach is a web developer in the St. Louis area, focusing on JavaScript, C#, AngularJS, and ASP.NET.

Brian Blanchard
Real world IoT – what they don’t tell you in the maker’s kit

In this session, we will run through the basic IoT kit. We’ll talk about options to get started. We’ll even walk through the hello blinky project to show off some basic code.

Once you have a feel for the basic, we will dig into the real world side by looking at a few recent IoT projects. In these architecture & code reviews, we’ll look at the following concepts and ways to address them:

  • How to choose & talk to sensors
  • Securely connecting remote devices to Azure
  • High volume (Many device) streaming analysis
  • Storing massive amounts of device data
  • Command & control – how to write code that changes the real world

With over 17 years of leadership experience in cloud and application development technologies, Brian Blanchard has unique expertise in helping Microsoft customers understand the business impact of new technologies and architect solutions leveraging those technologies.

In his current role as Vice President of Cloud Solutions at 10th Magnitude, he leads the company’s cloud architecture practice, helping customers migrate their applications and infrastructure to Azure and implement cutting-edge cloud-based solutions in areas like Internet of Things and DevOps.

Brian also serves as a V-TSP, Azure Advisor, Azure Insider, Azure Ranger and Technical Editor for Microsoft.
