In this session, we will take a look at Angular - a new MVC framework by Google. We will discuss some of the terminology that Angular offers, and see how we can use that to develop highly interactive, dynamic web applications. See “Detail” for a list of topics I cover and the Github repo URL

This is an intro-level talk we will take a look at Angular and developing rich web applications. Angular embraces HTML and CSS, allowing you to extend HTML towards your application, and uses plain JavaScript which makes your code easy to reuse, and test.

Note: This is an intro level talk. It is targeted towards developers who are curious about Angular and want to learn about the fundamental features and concepts in Angular.

Topics Covered -

  • Bootstrapping an AngularJS application using ng-app
  • ng-init and the evaluation {{ }} directive
  • A brief look at $rootScope
  • ng-model
  • Controllers, Dependency Injection, and the View-Model ($scope)
  • Looping using ng-repeat
  • Forms using ng-form, form validation and submission in AngularJS
  • Angular provided filters
  • Making AJAX requests using $http
