TechCast #76 - The AngularJS Framework with authors Lukas Ruebbelke and Brian Ford

Play Download media

Lukas Ruebbelke and Brian Ford, both speaking at Philly Emerging Tech this April, are co-authors of the forthcoming Manning book, AngularJS in Action. They are currently preparing for their first Manning Early Access release, or MEAP.

When Brian was working at Google as an intern, he was exposed to the Angular framework and learned quite a lot about it. So much in fact, that he developed the AngularJS Batarang, a Chrome debugging tool, and helped to launch their documentation site, also written in Angular.

Lukas has been working for over ten years as an application developer, starting with programming languages such as ActionScript and Flash, and then moving into the Javascript/HTML 5 world. He came upon Angular and also enjoyed working with it, as it just made sense to him.

In this TechCast episode, we'll discuss this framework, which helps developers put together browser-centric HTML and Javascript applications. We'll find out the major components, such as a very easily understood Model View Controller framework, the ViewModel or $scope, and other features such as services and the all-powerful Angular directives.

Topics mentioned include:

  • Models, Views, Controller
  • The Angular ViewModel
  • Scopes
  • Services and state
  • De-composing pages into multiple controllers
  • Yeoman as a build tool for Angular and other platforms
  • What are Angular Directives?

Books mentioned:

  • Javascript, the Good Parts - Douglas Crockford
  • Javacript Patterns
  • Javascript Enlightenment
