Getting stuck in with AngularJS

In response to my LAST POST regarding using Angular with what could be considered the ASP.NET 2016 toolchain (Typescript, Bower, NodeJS and Gulp), I got some response saying that it was a little hard to follow. It was a pretty targeted poast aimed at ASP.NET developers looking at using a more modern approach to their JavaScript, but I thought I’d try my hand at my own getting stuck in post with AngularJS. This is aimed at people who are beginners or intermediate with web development.

This post contains rough getting started code, shortcuts, borderline hacking and alcoholic cocktails. Consider yourself warned.

ASP.NET and the JS 2k16 toolchain (or how I learned to stop worrying and love the Bower)

Here is a blog post detailing my journey of discovery over 1 weekend into the new (at least to ASP.NET developers) JS tools that are being adopted by Visual Studio and are making their way into ASP.NET developers lives.

Note, this article contains changes of opinion, a word count that some viewers may find offencive, and beer. You have been warned.

Typescript 0.9.5, Chutzpah and Visual Studio update woes


This post is kind of a story. The story of how a simple (seemingly) update to Chutzpah version 3.0 and by extension Typescript 0.9.5 made an otherwise normal development day into a war against a legion of Typescript errors, most of which weren't even in our code.

If you're here, there's a chance you've come up against a similar issue. Hopefully this post can talk you through to a happy solution.
