Trip report from ngAtlanta: Angular’s Roadmap, Inclusion, and more

  • I’m frequently impressed with the imagination and quality of conferences in the Angular community, but I think Zack Chapple and the rest of the conference team set a new bar on diversity with women making up over 60% of the speakers and with other diversity aspects well represented.
  • Beyond the speaker diversity, the show had amazing content and I had great conversations with Angular developers from all around the world.
  • We’ve been working with the Bazel team on making this an option for Angular developers to get the same benefits.
  • Providing the core functions we’ve used to build Angular Material, you can now create your own components using our battle-tested feature sets for accessibility, i18n, RTL, overlays, and much more.
  • Final ThoughtsThe Angular team values applications users love to use, applications developers love to build, and a community where everyone feels welcome.

Last month I had the opportunity to speak at the ngAtlanta conference where I covered major parts of Angular’s 2018 roadmap and shared what I think is an interesting research-based rationale for…

Feature RoadmapMeta-points aside, here’s a few of the upcoming features I covered in our roadmap.

Bazel. Every developer at Google gets to use a consistently fast, reliable, multi-language build tool that is offered as an open source tool called Bazel. We’ve been working with the Bazel team on making this an option for Angular developers to get the same benefits. We’re now building Angular itself using Bazel and there are several early-adopters now starting to use it with their Angular apps. Complete details at g.co/ng/abc.

Schematics and ng update. We built the Angular CLI on a core technology called Schematics that lets anyone define custom templates and code transformations for use with the CLI. We’re shipping a new Schematics-based feature in CLI v1.7 called ng update that automatically updates your project dependencies and makes automated version fixes. With Schematics, you don’t have to wait for the CLI team to come up with features and you can build your own code transformations like ng update. Find out how in the Schematics blog post.
