Showing a loader with Angular 2

We’ve already done quite a lot to get a working pokédex with Angular 2. However, there are still two things that bother me: If the API request takes a while, the user wont notice it. The page will just be blank When we open the application, we get a simple “Loading…” message

Animating with Angular 2

We’re getting pretty far already with our Pokédex. We’ve already implemented a service with the Pokéapi, an overview and a part of the detail page.

Using the Netflix stack with Spring boot: Ribbon

I also made a small example about a service registry and how Netflix is involved into microservices with tools like Eureka. However, the story was quite unfinished, since we only made it possible for microservices […]
