This week's coding night (January 19th 2016) was hosted by Mantro GmbH in their luminous office in Munich. Mantro is a technology company where intrapreneurship and technology play a big part and so they like to meet software developers.
The topic for the coding night was developing a Tic-Tac-Toe game with TypeScript and AngularJS 2.
Version two is still in beta but it is already usable for non-production environments. It is used for the client-side or front-end part.
To the delight of the participating developers there was free pizza and beer available. Everybody concentrated with the laptops they brought and feverishly worked on a solution. But for many it was harder than thought. For once Angular 2 posed a number of problems as it is different from Angular 1. Then TypeScript was new for most of the developers. Only one of the organisers, Radu Creosteanu, managed a complete solution.
