Angular 2.0 and Typescript meetup
Attended the Getting started on Angular2 with TypeScript meetup last night. Good attendance - the room at MetLife was full. It was a beginner tutorial, but since Angular2 is quite different from AngularJS and not that old, it's definitely what was needed. The presentation by
Kumanan Murugesan was pretty smooth, and there were lots of useful questions.
I met someone (Jack?) on the way in lamenting that they couldn't convert an Angular 1 project to Angular 2 with just two months until release - but later Bryan Patrick Coleman, one of the organizers, told me that there are actually migration tools that will translate from Angular 1 to 2. Might be worth a try!
