New, epic blog post examining how JavaScript's prototypal inheritance works, and how Microsoft's TypeScript builds on it to prove class-based inheritance. No TypeScript experience necessary.
Note: All the diagrams below were created using Gliffy, a fantastic, web-based diagram editor. The latest version has been rebuilt using HTML and JS instead of Flash, and it really is a joy to use. In this post, I'm going to take a close look at how JavaScript's prototypal inheritance works by ...

New blog post on simulating slow XHR calls using a response interceptor.
When writing an AngularJS application that communicates with back-end services via XHR calls, you need to cater for the latency that will occur when users are accessing the application for real over slow connections. This usually means showing things such as loading indicators when long running ...

New blog post, wherein my dislike of most podcasts somehow persuades me to give Dart a chance.
I'm not a fan of podcasts, on the whole, particularly the ones that I've listened to that focus on coding and developer culture. For a long time, I couldn't put my finger on what it was that put me off them, and I just figured podcasts weren't for me. However, in the past year, I've found two ...

You should also learn to read all the questions that I directly posed to you, before stating that "You haven't posed any questions to me". Do you still maintain that, or have you read all my questions yet? Too bad you can't answer them. But I didn't expect you to be able to: that was why I asked them. ;( http://blog.dantup.com/2014/10/have-the-angular-team-lost-their-marbles
