Other recordings from the conference are available here:

Using Angular 2 Components in a Non Angular app (15:20)

Shridharan Chandramouli (Lucid Software)

Migrating a large and complex JS application over to Angular can be a time consuming and daunting task. In this talk, we will walk through how we did a piecemeal migration of our Lucidpress app over to Ng without a complete rewrite of the app, by dynamically loading Angular components in a JS app. Lucidpress is a large application—hundreds of thousands of lines of handwritten JavaScript. After seeing the success that the community has had with modernizing the UI with Angular, we wanted to follow suit. We didn’t have the resources to do a wholesale rewrite and test all our changes all at once. We wanted to write some new Angular 2 components and do a piecemeal migration towards Angular, without having one big Angular module controlling the entire application. In this talk, I will explain how we got around this problem by dynamically loading Angular components and walk you through the process of setting up a few Angular 2 components in a simple non-Angular JavaScript application.


ng-sydney (Sydney)

TypeScript 2.4 (41:20)


Have you started working with TypeScript 2.x yet? Have you started working with TypeScript at all?


Angular Warsaw (Warsaw)

Mad Science with the Angular Compiler (21:18)

Minko Gechev (

One of the most unique features of Angular is the way it performs change detection. The template of each individual component in the app gets transpiled to efficient JavaScript which makes the dirty checking algorithm “obviously fast”. The fast change detection is not the only benefit we get from the template compiler! In this talk we’ll mix some mad science ideas with the Angular compiler and see where we can go!

Building a roboarmy with Angular (31:48)

Sebastian Witalec (Telerik)

Taking over the world is not an easy challenge. It requires good strategy and a powerful army. What better soldiers than a mass of obedient robots? You just need a way to issue them instruction via their BLE interface. But should you choose to build a web app or a native mobile app? With Angular you can do both; just add Web Bluetooth API to build a web app and NativeScript to build a native mobile app. Join this session to learn how it all works, to see how to get started, and to swear fealty to your new robot overlords.

Sebastian Witalec is a Technical Evangelist for Telerik with over 8 years of experience in software engineering and architecture. Sebastian has passion for all types of technologies.

He wants to share my knowledge via trainings and workshops as it gives him great dose of fulfillment. Currently he is focusing on Angular 2 and TypeScript techonologies ecosystem.

Reactive State Management For Your Angular App (33:54)

Maxim Salnikov

Your Angular application is a reactive system. It reacts to different events and updates the model, then propagates the changes through the component tree. It works like a charm for the simple and non UI-intensive apps. But when you, following this architecture, meet some more complex usecases (like concurrent data modification, complex component intercommunications, the need to keep temporary UI state, etc), it’s time to think about different way to manage the app state. Redux pattern to the rescue! But Redux in Angular way. We have reactive forms, reactive router, observables-based http-client, so let’s have a look at reactive Redux called ngrx/store. In this session: intro to the state management (famous Facebook bug), base principles and components of Redux, converting our regular app to the one using centralized store using ngrx/store, tooling, pros and cons of having centralized store for the state management.

Maxim Salnikov is Oslo-based Web UI Engineer, a Google Developer Expert in Web Technologies and Angular. He develops complex web applications since the end of the last century and has extensive experience with all aspects of web front-end: UX/UI prototyping, HTML/CSS/JS, main frameworks, progressive web apps.

MobX – Performance and Sanity (8:34)

Adam Klein (500Tech)

Tired of the endless boilerplate code of Redux? Afraid to ditch everything you know about Javascript programming in favour of new paradigms? MobX introduces an amazing way to manage your state using plain objects. It is the ‘Object.observe’ that we always fantasized about. In this short talk I will introduce the idea and concept behind MobX, and how it can completely turn your web development process around.

Adam Klein is a frontend developer by day, open sourcerer by night (angular-tree-component, mobx-angular), and the CTO of 500Tech He used to be an international salsa dancer and choreographer, but still finds speaking about code more exciting than dancing in front of an audience.

The Web in an Era of Smart Devices (27:12)

Kenneth Rohde Christiansen (Intel)

The improvements in size, features and price of hardware has ushered new opportunities in creating small, smart devices (aka internet-of-things) which can be integrated in homes and industries. In these places, the devices can help automate common tasks, as well as give information about the state of things, such as temperature of a machine, air quality etc.

Installing an app for one such devices might seem fine at first, but it doesn’t scale nicely to 100s of devices, or devices you seldom interact with, like in an industrial setting. Devices might even have different security restrictions, like being locked behind a physical key.

So how do we communicate with these devices? The web has always been known for its low fraction and easy on-boarding. No need to install any software, just type in a URL and off you go. And it has always been very secure with its sandbox system, and companies can even have URLs be restricted to certain WiFi networks (intranet).

Kenneth Rohde Christiansen is a Danish software engineer and architect, specialized in mobile and web technology. Working at Intel out of Copenhagen, Kenneth helps define Intel’s strategy and plans regarding the Web Platform, as well as puts it into action.

Reaching Out with Angular – Accessibility & Internationalization (30:50, the first 3 minutes are in Hebrew)

Noam Kfir

Your app is basically unusable. Whole populations will never even know you exist, and you’re probably alienating many who do. Putting yourself on the map means reaching out to all your potential customers, regardless of whether they use a keyboard or mouse, where they live, the language they speak or sign, or if they need a screen reader to use your app. In this talk, we’ll run through a bunch of quick demos and show how to start preparing your Angular app for people that come from all walks of life.
