10 Lessons from a Long Running DDD Project – Part 1
Round about 7 years ago, I was part of a very large project which rooted its design and architecture around domain-driven design concepts. I’ve blogged a lot about that experience (and others), but one interesting aspect of the experience is we were afforded more or less a do-over, with a new system in a very similar domain. I presented this topic at NDC Oslo (recorded, I’ll post when available).

ASP.NET Core: Getting Started with AngularJS 2
Last year I wrote an article about “ASP.NET 5: Jump Start to AngularJS with MVC 6 Web API”. This article will walk you through on how to get started with AngularJS 2 in ASP.NET Core (a.k.a ASP.NET 5). In this article you will basically learn how to set up the required tools needed for you to run a simple Angular 2 App within ASP.NET Core. By simple, I mean there’s no database or data model involved as I’m trying to keep this article as simple as possible so starters can easily follow. In my next article, I'll demonstrate how to build an app that uses ASP.NET Core Web API to work with data, but at this point we’ll just start with the basics first.
