It Is Too Soon to Panic on AngularJS 2.0

So AngularJS team finally is talking more publically about what they’re trying to do. At the ngEurope conference last week, they talked very opening about their new strategy for AngularJS 2.0 and it has a lot of people freaked out. Sounds a lot like some reaction to Silverlight in fact. I’m seeing a flood of hate on the AngularJS team at the moment. I am not sure it is justified. Here’s why: While there are a lot of details about what they’re thinking being shown and shared, the reality is that

I suspect it will be fine. “But what about lack of backwards compatibility…” Again, with so much time before release, the new direction will be clearer as we get closer.

In order to make it super easy for anyone to get a tiny taste of what the VS Online load test experience is about, we added a new web based experience a few days ago. If you go to your account home page on any VS Online account, you’ll see a new top level tab. If you click on it you’ll get a page that allows you to run a very simple load test.  You specify an url and some basic settings for how many users you want to simulate, how long you want
the test to run, how fast you want your users clicking and what browser mix you want.  Then just click “Test now”. It will then go off an acquire load test agents from our pool, configure the test and run it. Once it’s done, it will digest all of the results and give you a simple analysis of your load test showing the average response time, # of requests per second and any errors encountered. If you want to do “real” load testing you’ll need...(Read whole news on source site)
