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 maintain Angular 2 applications with ease, including classes, decorators, and compile-time type checking.

Cooking with GAAS, Globalization as a Service
What would a non-English-speaking user say about your product? What are the challenges that present themselves when you want to take your product global? Product team members need to be armed with the knowledge and awareness of what it takes to build a product in the appropriate locale or culture. With the drive to microservice architecture and continuous deployment product strategies, how does a monumental task like globalization fit in?

The talk will not only provide a case study of how Hudl tackled the globalization challenge across our platforms (iOS, Android, Web), but will also provide tips and tricks on testing, reliability, and the translation process. In this talk I will cover the following:
- How to start with an MVP (minimum viable product) on globalization
- How globalization fits in a microservice architecture
- How to make globalization scalable inside your organization when there are many parties involved.
If you are a software engineer, quality engineer, quality analyst, or product manager this session will be helpful if you are thinking about internationalizing. In addition, if you are already working with an internationalized product we invite you to attend as this will provide a different engineering, process, and testing angle.
