I've been fiddling a lot lately with ngrx/store and managed to successfully implement it into a side project I've been working on. This post is just meant to be a refresher for me on how to take a boilerplate Angular project and add in state management with ngrx/store in case I need to this again (and ngrx/store is so awesome that I'm pretty sure I will be using it again. haha). Since this page is just publicly out there for anyone to see and you just so happened to stumble upon it, I guess you can use this post to add ngrx/store to your project too!
When you start working on a project with multiple people who are all making multiple branches it can get to the point where you have a humongous list of branches, sometimes to the point where it's totally unmanageable. If your project is on github, you will see a huge list of possible branches in the dropdown box. This is something that really bothers me.

Let's face it: a Macbook Pro is the most common machine for web developers right now. What is it about Mac OS that everyone loves? It is the native linux shell you get with terminal, the ability to use xcode for native iOS apps, the ability to test on safari browser, or maybe just the sleek, timeless interface? It's nice to have a powerful Macbook, but it's not nice to pay Apple's full price tag. My '09 Macbook started suddenly turning off on me, and I wanted something a little more powerful. Also, I really wanted to upgrade from the 13" screen to the 15". However, I didn't want to fork over the $2000+ to get my dream machine from the Apple store. Luckily, with some research and a little tweaking I was able to get a very solid machine for just barely over $1000. Here's how...
