02:39 – When is Angular 2 out? Do you feel like other frameworks (React) are becoming more popular and that people are moving over to them? Will people come back to Angular?

21:01 – How can you convince a client to pick Angular over something else like React?

26:19 – Should I continue learning Angular 1 or move on to Angular 2? Will there still be jobs where I can use Angular 1 after Angular 2 is released?

27:38 – To Typescript or not to Typescript?

33:02 – How do you integrate third-party libraries like Firebase or D3 into an NG2 app, taking into account that NG2 runs on one-way dataflow paradigm fueled by an Rx implementation?

36:14 – The Typescript autocomplete/help, etc. that we were discussing before: what tools or IDEs are we talking about?

38:26 – What is the current state of the Angular 2 router?
