Intro I love working with the Angular HttpClient. It is easy to use and was designed to work with RxJS. It is vastly different from the AngularJS implementation, if you’re curious I wrote about these differences here. However, there is one common issue that developers fall victim to. The issue really relates to TypeScript generics. I have also written about generics in TypeScript here. But in this post, we will reveal how the issue can easily be avoided.
Inspiration I recently returned from Charleston, South Carolina – where I spoke at SyntaxCon. The event was very professionally organized and gave me inspiration for Cream City Code. In the main hall they had a HALO by Simple Booth. It serves as a photo booth with a conference specific backdrop – which is perfect for sharing the conference experience. I looked into purchasing one but was encouraged to simply write my own… so I did and this blog will detail that process.
If you have been following the development efforts of the Angular2 project, you have witnessed certain highs and lows - but it has been a fun ride.
