Ortus Developer Week 2016 started yesterday, Monday November 14th 2016 with a bang. We had Raymond Camden talking about Static Web Site generators, and all 4 sessions had great attendance. Today, Tuesday the 15th is going to be another action packed day of presentations. For those those have not heard of ODW, it is a series of FREE and live webinars hosted by the Ortus Team and seasoned developers from around the world. These sessions will cover software development, web and mobile, and usage of any of our open source and commercial products. After a busy conference season, ODW gives you 1 more action packed week of sessions, enjoyable without travel & TSA, all from the comfort of your own office. If the sessions are too distracting to watch while you work, we record all the sessions, and make them available for later viewing as well.
We've done a lot lately with Unit Testing, and one of the items we touched on, only briefly, in the scheme of things, was Dependency Injection, and why it is a good practice to use. We also discussed why a Dependency Injection framework like ColdBox's WireBox, Sean Corfield's DI/1 from Framework/1, and Coldspring from the XML days are a great benefit, especially as your app gained momentum and size.
I explained it here, and although I only touched on it, I know Dependency Injection is not an easy concept to grasp, the funny thing, once you actually do it, you think to yourself, wow, thats not complicated at all. Yesterday I blogged about the great videos available online at youtube for Angulars Conference ng-conf, and one of the ones I watched about Dependency Injection was priceless... so todays post is going to discuss that video, and then let you watch the video, and everything will click (I hope).
I have talked a lot about conferences lately, and I apologize, because most of them are very expensive, you have to travel a long way, and there are 500 awesome conferences, and if we went to them all, we'd get no work done. Today, I talk about one we all missed, well, most of us... Angulars conference, ng-conf, which was held last week... January 16th and 17th in Salt Lake City, Utah. So why am I talking about it? If you read the title you'll know why. ng-conf, being a Google backed product, put all of there awesome sessions on Youtube :) I actually caught a few on the live stream, which was cool, as you could ask questions to the team during presentations etc, but the videos are just as great, after the fact.
