New Pluralsight Course - Building Mobile Apps With the Ionic Framework and AngularJS

Teach Your Kid to Code Coming to Philly.NET

If you are someone curious about these concepts, this is a "can't miss" presentation...


Building Cross-Platform Mobile Apps with Telerik AppBuilder

I'm pleased to announce that my latest Pluralsight course has been released: Building Cross-Platform Mobile Apps with Telerik AppBuilder.
