Getting Started with AngularJS

In this session, we'll cover why AngularJS is quickly becoming one of the most popular frameworks to build rich web applications using HTML and JavaScript, touching on why it is such a robust framework for building out web applications big and small. We'll compare it to the competition like Knockout, Backbone, Ember and jQuery, drawing on my personal experiences with each of them. We'll then create a simple “hello world” web application, visually explaining core AngularJS topics along the way. Finally, we'll take a look at AngularAgility, a powerful drop-in open-source plugin I created which makes common tasks like client-side form field generation, validation messages, dirty tracking, and on-navigate away handling a breeze.
