Deploying an Angular 2 App to Azure with Github

Recently John and I took some time away to discuss how to get an Angular 2 application deployed to Azure. There were some challenges here and there with configuration, discussions about "just wanting to code" and more; it was a lot of fun. Here is the result of that conversation. Check out the Play by Play on Pluralsight, and the All code samples can be found at github. In this course, John Papa and Shayne Boyer walk through how to build and deploy an Angular 2 app to Azure. You'll learn valuable tips on how to think about cloud deployment, how to mirror production environments locally using Gulp and Express, and how to use tools like Gulp, Github, and npm...


Angular 2 : Continuous Integration to Azure using Codeship and the Angular CLI

Getting an application written is the first challenge, however having proper tests, running those tests in a continuous integration pipeline as well as deploying the application to your cloud host can be a task to setup. Here is a quickstart to create an application using the angular-cli, using codeship to build and run the test using the angular-cli and the push to a website on Azure. Using the angular-cli we can quickly create an application by executing the commands... ng new quickstart-ng-cli cd quickstart-ng-cli ng serve Once that is scaffolded out, create your GitHub repo and check in the source. For a full angular-cli walk through look at my post Angular 2: A Re-Quickstart using the CLI Codeship Go to...


ASP.NET 5 : Continuous Integration with Travis-CI, Tutum, Docker, Webhooks and Azure

Getting a "code to deployment" workflow is a story many organizations want to have nailed down when looking into new technology stacks and architectures such as ASP.NET 5 and the container story like Docker. I hear from business leaders comments like; "...that's great, but how do we deploy this, scale it. What does the development pipeline look like?" Great questions. For my own projects I wanted to be able to "just write code" and have the rest of the process handled. Not have to worry about how does it get built, deployed, scaled etc. Here is a working sample technology stack using all the cool kids on the block and some old players too. Setting It All Up The...


Azure Mobile Services .NET Backend Tips

I've been working with Azure Mobile Services since it was released and until recently only the JavaScript backend was available, built using node.js. Although it is very mature with many options, the community was pressuring for a .NET option and now it is available. Modeled much like a standard Web API / MVC project at first glance, there may be a few things that you like to take advantage of in these types of projects that throw you for a loop when using the new .NET option. These include Dependency Injection, Entity Framework (Migrations and Relationships), and the help page. Getting Started You have two options for getting a project started. 1. Go to the Azure Portal and create a...


Being a successful mobile developer - Windows Phone, Marketing & Xamarin

Why Windows Phone? This is not a new question, but a question or topic that I get involved a lot.  Why do you have a Windows Phone? Why do you build apps for that platform? You should be learning Java and Objective C and putting your apps on iOS and Android; that's where the users are. That is the message from the media, family, tech pundits and co-workers. And the numbers say that as well; the latest report shows that Android holds a ridiculous global market share of 80%, Apple with 12% and Windows Phone at 4% respectively.  So why should I build an app for Windows Phone first? Its about visibility. Visibility Apple has more than 1...
