    Create a Credit Card Entry System using Angular (w/ Paul D. Sheriff)

    Many websites need to ask a user to enter a credit card in order to purchase some goods. Building this page is not quite as simple as you may think. In fact you need a few APIs, some C# classes, and some business logic to ensure this page works correctly. In this seminar you are going to learn to build all the components necessary to create a page to accept credit card information using HTML, Bootstrap, Angular and the Web API.

    Learning Objectives
    Build something “useful” using Angular
    Data binding with Angular
    Calling a Web API from Angular
    Custom Validators

    Paul D. Sheriff has authored literally hundreds of books, webcasts, videos and articles on .NET, WPF, Silverlight, HTML 5, Windows Phone and SQL Server. Paul can be reached via email at [masked]. Follow Paul at @pdsainc and facebook.com/PDSApaulsheriff.

During my time at LSU, I worked tech support and built out some custom applications in PHP & JS for LSU Residential Life. After a few years, I landed a software developer role at an IT and software development company before graduation. I gained a breadth of skills in technologies and project management from working at a software consultancy. I decided to move to a city with a larger tech community.

    Intro to Webpack (w/ Zoltan Albert)

    There's been a lot of hubbub about Webpack in the JavaScript community over the past year or so. That being said, I often hear about how setting it up can be a confusing pain in the rear. So, we're going to break down and cover the main things to get you going with the hottest JavaScript bundler on the web. 

     Things we're gonna cover: 

    - What is a module bundler and why you want one 

    - The four core concepts needed for a basic webpack config

    - How using webpack-dev-server can make your life easier (even on smaller projects) 

    About Zoltan: 

    "I've dabble with web development since 2000, but only pursued it as a career in the past year. Before that I jumped around from different jobs and different places, including living in Hungary and as well as being Chinese linguist for the US Navy. During my time in the service I was my shop's "computer guy," and ended up creating and delivering the training required if you wanted to work on any of our site's internal web pages. Now, though, I'm slinging code for the IoT video surveillance company Smartvue. We do cool things, and you should try to come work with us."
