A little introduction
When I first came across the Angular 2 Universal project, it was there just near the official Angular 2 repo in github. I was wondering back then what could this project be, I mean I hadn’t heard about anything like “universal apps” from the core team, yet! But then I watched the talk given by Jeff Whelpley (@whelpley) and Patrick Stapleton (@gdi2290) at AngularU (watch the video here), and this had convinced me to give it a try. So I decided to fork the project, and start hacking around. I have to admit that going into the project and understanding how things work was kind of complicated at the beginning because there were few documentation. Thankfully, Patrick was there to guide me, and I ended up getting things set up and most importantly I was ready to contribute.
