Warning: This video was recorded during early beta versions of Angular 2 and we recommend going to Do you know how to get started learning Angular? to learn how to get and stay up-to-date with Angular.

In this video, Duncan Hunter – SSW Software Architect – interviews Minko Gechev and Ludovic Henin about Angular2, Gulp and TypeScript.

The interview starts off talking about how to use TypeScript for your gulpfile versus JavaScript and the benefits. They then talk about the Angular2 seed project on GitHub and what is on the backlog next for the second most popular Angular2 starter seed project.  Minko talks about React versus Angular and explains what all the fuss is about and which is good for what. Listen in if you are interested in Angular2 and the ins and outs of getting started with Angular2 now.

Take the Poll!
