Angular 2 has some big changes coming. Read up on them here. 
In this blog post I will talk about the three core concepts of Angular 2: components, dependency injection, and property bindings. Disclaimer Angular 2 is still in the works. The core concepts are solid, but the API may change. If you find that a code snippet that does not work, please message me, and I will update the blog post. Let’s Build an App Let’s say we want to build this application, which is a list of tech talks that ...

Jason Mayes originally shared to Web Programming:
 
One for all the #JavaScript developers out there - we have a problem with #promises ! This is a very insightful and informative article on the new promises API and how to use it properly (you may be surprised to find you have been using it wrong all this time...). Not sure? Well if you cant explain what the difference is between the 4 promises below, then you should read this... http://pouchdb.com/2015/05/18/we-have-a-problem-with-promises.html

promises promises....

I generally end up using a counter, or a settimeout to ensure the delay before the final step. Easier than debugging stuff for one browser or another just because javascript likes being async. (Note: It's not the best approach, but deadlines are usually more important)

Mostly a paid service for devops related tutorials, (starting at $30/3 months), but there's a free newsletter tier that give you access to some of their videos too.

+Ramsez Stamper it's just a really misleading name.

Not a bad idea though. Not a whole lot of devops sites like this popping up.

A great save for future reference. Just remember to cop[y the inline style it generates into a style sheet.

Londoners are none too happy about the new Coca Cola London Eye sponsorship.

I don't mind sponsorship deals like this one, but I would have preferred to see something a bit more... health conscious.
Rebranding the Eye in the livery of the fizzy drink maker will lead to children suffering greater ill health, say campaigners

A better way to handle AJAX style content updates. Currently only available in the latest Firefox and Chrome Canary.

If they update the ability to use CORS methods in the window event soon, that would be awesome.

I just finished working around a huge issue caused by a 3rd party resources that wasn't sending the correct headers...

Very cool +Joost Schuur​​

+Joseph Zee Not really a photographer, save for the occasional Instagram shot, but I think I'll venture out to join in. Looks like it's going to be several hundred people strong!

What you learn about MongoDB you can reuse with Hyperdex, so this learning will not be wasted.

Nerdy product guy. Gamer. Touches code (usually in a good way).
Introduction
I like nerdy things. Passionate about video game connected services and making people's social lives richer through thoughtful product design and online networks. Over 10 years of professional experience in the video game industry. I currently work on product at Playmob, a company that connects game developers with charities for in-game item sponsorships.

I'm also learning web application development again in Ruby on Rails, so I know what the heck the engineers are talking about.

Enjoy cycling, reading (alternate history and science fiction (Mars, time travel, robots)). Unsuccessfully recovering TiVo-holic. Space nut, gamer, atheist, web developer/coder, Apple aficionado, pro science, pro rational thought and behavior.

I also run the +Martian Soil and +Backbone Links pages on Google+ and help out as a moderator in the London and Web Developers, Web Designers, Web Coding

In case you're wondering, despite the Dutch name, I don't speak the language much. My father is Dutch (and my mother German).

I also maintain a Gamers circle, where I post more gaming news than in public. Let me know if you'd like to be added to that.

Current gaming obsessions: Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft.

Content posted prior to the account migration in July 2012 can be found on the old profile.

What an amazingly spacious place by the canal! Cafe area when you get in, tables for food upstairs and a lounge downstairs with a performance space. Great for larger groups of friends to meet up in the evening, or just to pop in during the day after a walk along Regents Canal. Dog friendly too.

I went on the hunt for a new place to buy some bread and explore the neighbourhood and really enjoyed the warehouse ambiance and the good selection of baked goods. It did not disappoint in my quest to get some new 'fancy sandwich making bread'. Even the metal coffee mugs were a fun way to mix things up.

The first of a serious of coffee places with tech workers in mind. Comfy, uniquely individual seating, power outlets and wifi galore, good food menu for a bite to eat and they even offer space to book for small scale meetups or company meetings. Some days can get a little crowded and noisy, so your mileage may vary.

Unbelievable variety of international foods, all under one roof. The only bad thing I can say about it is there's too much variety I chose from and it's only on Sundays. Some seating available (check the back!), but you might have to sit on the floor or, weather permitting, on the curb outside. Note: there's even more food options in the neighbourhood and various parts of the Old Truman Brewery. Just in case you need more choices.

Restored in the style of the original theater, the Globe not only puts on the Bard's classic plays, sometimes in a modern setting, but also other plays from the era or more contemporary times. At £5 the standing room tickets are a steal, but make sure you know what you're in for if it's a 3+ hour Shakespeare play. Even if you're seated, you may want to upgrade to a cushion for only an extra pound.

No less than six different soups made daily here, with plenty of space to sit and enjoy them. It's right down by the Old Street Underground station, so whether you want a quick meal before you're off somewhere or are passing the time until a local appointment, no need to walk further. Even has a bitcoin ATM.

John's is an old school barber shop that isn't much to look at, but provides a good service with a friendly conversation. I've never seen it busy here (in fact, I wonder how he stays in business!), so you'll probably not need to wait. Prices are a couple of pounds more than the quick places you'll find on busy streets (about £12 for a basic men's cut), but the service is more than worth it.
