You might be wondering that why people are seating on the floor? because I had more attendees than expected. I thought there would be maximum 100- 130 people would join the event. But I was wrong, and around 300 people attended the event. There were no enough chairs for all 300 people, so we removed all the chairs from the hall such that everyone could be accommodated by seating on the floor. I must appreciate passion and learning attitude of each participants that they agreed to seat on the floor for 5-6 hrs. We all sat on the floor for the learning and love of AngularJS 2.0

In six hours I covered following topics,

  • Setting up development environment in VS Code
  • Understanding Bootstrapping
  • Understanding Modules
  • Understanding Components
  • Creating first component
  • Creating Service
  • Understanding Routing
  • Performing CRUD operations using http

I also covered basics of JavaScript functions, objects, and inheritance. Attendees were very much involved and fully participated. I used Dan Wahlin AngularJS 2.0 project from GitHub as the starter project and built application on top of that.

image

I was very motivated and aspired to do better seeing participations and passions of people, even though they were seating on the floor for whole days and many of them did not get lunch. I must each attendee for their support in successfully execution of the event.

image

I must also thank Microsoft India, specially Usha Rathnavel for her support in providing us hall, coffee/tea and lunch for the attendees on very short notice. Without her help this event was not possible.

Once again I thank each developer who came for the event. Since I am based out of Delhi, aspired to so more such event in Delhi.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep. – Robert Frost

I am very excited to share that I have completed 8 years of working as professional. In these 8 years, I have worked on various technologies and for esteem organizations. I have been fortunate to work with inspiring teams and under the guidance of great people. In infographic, I can summarize 8 years of my working as below:

Due to my contribution to developer community, Microsoft has been awarding me prestigious Most Valuable Professional award for last 6 times.

How I did in 2015?

image

I procrastinate, hence this blog post is 12 days late. Nevertheless, I wish Happy New Year to each one of you. May you get best of the life in 2016. Many of us don’t like to read long stories and enjoy reading data in all possible ways. For data lovers here is the summary in a tabular form. However, I strongly request you to read the full story in your sweet time.

Where I was working

My Work

image

For me 2015 has been an ok year. Neither anything exceptional nor any fatal bad event did happen in 2015. I took 2015 on a day to day basis.

Did not enjoy as corporate Trainer

I started as a freelancer corporate trainer in January 2015 and could survived as a trainer merely for three months. It is a different kind of competition, trainer community, and vendor eco system. I did around 10 trainings in 3 months, however I realized that I don’t belong to there. I love to teach but certainly I am not a trainer. In three months, I did trainings for following clients-

  • Accenture
  • FactSet
  • Polaris Software

I will keep seeking opportunity to host workshop and teach developers, however not as so called corporate trainer. Life is too short to do the stuff you don’t enjoy, isn’t it?

Resumed as Developer Evangelist at Infragistics

I am a Developer Evangelist by instinct and aspired to enable developers all across the globe.

image

It was April afternoon when I met inspiring Jaosn Beres in one of the posh Delhi hotel. We talked about my career aspirations, strong and weak points etc. During our conversation, Jason asked me – why don’t you represent Infragistics as an evangelist in developer community? He added, you work hard and I will make the path for you to become Infragistics global evangelist. It was an offer, I could not resist. I said YES then and there.

I was Telerik evangelist till April 2014. I confess, for a year I missed being an evangelist. Teaching developers, conducing workshops, hosting webinars, and moreover enabling developers to take right decisions on the products. Jaosn offer gave breath to dying evangelist in me.

I was once again DEVELOPER EVANGELIST of Infragistics starting April 2015. Being an evangelist from April to December for the developers,

  • I wrote 36 articles on various topics like AngularJS, JavaScript, MVC, AZURE
  • I hosted 9 free webinars
  • I delivered 11 talks in various conferences and user group events.

Find recording of all the webinars here

Read all the articles here

I love to be an evangelist, and I am been doing it once again. I will focus on web based products like Ignite UI. I look forward to add more values for Infragistics Developer community in 2016.

Community rocks

image

With help of C-SHARPCORNER COMMUNITY and my personal blog, I have been teaching developers all across the country. I don’t charge to attend my workshops. A thousands of developers attend my workshop, sessions, and Infragistics day. In 2015, I focused mainly on Azure, AngularJS, JavaScript, MVC and Ignite UI.

  • I wrote 63 articles
  • I hosted 14 workshop/session
  • Hosted one session in Mathura village for school students

Looking Forward in 2016

I am very excited about 2016 and I am sure it is going be bigger and better. I look forward to add more values to Infragistics developer community as an Evangelist, to my blog readers by writing quality posts, and doing more sessions/workshop for C-sharpcorner chapter community.

I may become more ambitious also, and why to discard own Startup?😉 Good luck everyone. Have a great 2016.

Thanks for attending workshop on AngularJS at Infragistics Day

I will start with thanking Jaosn Beres and Infragistics for letting me do it.

Can you see any one tired in below photo? This was the group photo taken after marathon 8 hrs coding done by 140+ developers at Infragistics Day. Yes these smiling faces say a lot about the Infragistics Day.

image

It was an overwhelming response for first ever Infragistics Day. We hosted Infragistics day with the help of c-sharpcorner.com in their Noida office. There were more than 450 developers registered to learn – “AngularJS step by step” at Infragistics Day. Due to space constraint, we could only accommodate 143 developers in the workshop. Developers were asked to bring their laptop since it was all about “each developer is coding “at Infragistics Day.

image

We started the day with setting of development environment, understanding basics of SPA and further proceeded to roughly code on the following topics,

  • $scope object
  • Controllers
  • Service
  • Factory
  • Forms
  • Routings
  • Calling web API and REST services
  • Performing CRUD operations
  • Introduction of Directives

image

There were developers from the esteem companies like Accenture, HCL, NIIT, Magic Software etc. attending the workshop. We were surprised to see that developers travelled from far cities like Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Chandigarh to attend the Infragistics Day. For example Jinal Shah and Dhriti Shah came to attend from the Ahmedabad.

image

Developers got a chance to interact with Infragistics India director Rohit Gaur as well. Rohit gave a brief introduction about Infragistics. He also invited interns starting next January.

image

Developers were requested to tweet about their experience with hashtag #InfragisticsDay or #Infragistics. It turned out to be good buzz on social media about the day. At the end of the day some of the developers got @csharpcorner and @infragistics tshirts and bags also.

Some of the tweets and Facebook updates about the event was like below:
