What the HTML? - Angular, Angular, Angular


It’s here at last, our next What the HTML? Speaker event. This event is open for anybody to come along and have a drink and chill out while watching some talks on Angular.js.

There are currently loads of front end frameworks to choose from when creating our web applications and understanding them is important.

Angular.js over the past few years is getting more and more popular and it’s a great time to come grab a beer and learn about it. Don’t worry if you aren't familiar with Angular, we will start the night of going over what it is and an introduction into the framework.

Then we will dive into how we go about testing our Angular projects and techniques and tools we can use to help us out and the importance of testing these types of Applications.
We will finish the night taking about how Angular is currently being used in a real world project. The benefits and negatives found and the lessons learnt when using Angular in this environment.



Who :  Josh Brown 

Josh is a web developer, having worked in an agency for the past year he has had the chance to work with major brands and fresh start ups, allowing him to experiment and play with some of the latest technology for everything from apps to sites.

Talk : Introduction to AngularJS

A brief introduction to Angular, we will explore the key pieces that make up AngularJS such as data-binding, filters, modules, controllers and factories to help us build upon and make a simple task management web app. 


Who :  Anton LeMercier (with David Boyne)

Anton is a web developer currently working at compare the market. He was building JavaScript enabled web applications before JQuery emerged in 2006, and witnessed the ever-changing JavaScript landscape that bring us to the current day. Anton is an Angular evangelist, believing it to be a revolutionary step that has redefined the way we design and build web applications.

Talk : Testing AngularJS with Karma 

Angular has been built from the ground up with testability as a prime objective. We will explore how to test Angular controllers and services using Karma.    


Who : Karl Lieser (Web Developer @ Kiddicare)

Web developer based in Peterborough, working more heavily with JavaScript over the last couple of years. Always keen to learn something new and recently started discovering more advanced MV* JavaScript frameworks.

Title : AngularJS in the wild!

In the summer of 2013 a project was kicked off to re-factor Kiddicare's in-store Browse and Order Points. AngularJS was identified as a great framework to base the new single page web app on. This talk will focus on what the problem domain was, how AngularJS supported this project in being a success and (hopefully) some interesting insights and lessons learnt.


Dates and Times will be up soon, but roughly looking at end of July / Start of August.

Look forward seeing you there,

    It was a great night. I enjoyed catching up with folk and I took something away from all the speakers. It would be great if you guys could put on another Angular.js evening sometime. Maybe set everyone the same Angular.js task and see what comes back and compare techniques/code?
