"Angular-UI Router" - John Jenson (Cengage Learning)

"Angular-UI Router"

John Jenson - Principal Engineer / Cengage Learning

Angular UI Router provides all the capabilities of Angular’s router, but adds nested views, deep linking, and a lot more. This talk is a live coding presentation where we will build an app using UI Router that demonstrates some of it’s most powerful features, and as well as show you how to convert your app from angular router to ui router.

John is a Principal Engineer for Cengage Learning. He is CS graduate from BYU with 11 years of industry experience. During his career, he exposed himself to lots of different businesses and industries including conference management, property management, prescription drug claims processing, banking, and e-learning. He is an experienced Java engineer that has worked with all kinds of component heavy MVC web frameworks, and now more recently, lighter weight SOUI architectures including GWT, Backbone, and Angular. He has been developing Angular applications for the last year, and recently been pioneering full JavaScript stack development at Cengage using Node.js, MongoDB, Mongoose, ExpressJS, and AngularJS.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Someone just asked me to add the slides. I know it has been a while, but in case anyone is still looking for them, here you go.

    Are the slides for Jon's presentation getting published? Love to share with some of my fellow geeks who were not at the MeetUp.

    If you are working with AnguarJS, or maybe you are just starting to dabble in it...our clients want to talk with you.

    Boston companies are teeming with front-end development positions...get at me and we can chat about them =) [masked][masked]

    It was my first time there, and it was amazing. I thought John's talk was really well-delivered. It was engaging and pragmatic with him showing the audience what this new routing technology gave you over the default one. I had the opportunity to meet a couple members, and looking forward to coming back again to meet more.

    Main presentation was very helpful in understanding use of ui-router. John did a good live-coding session which also helped illustrate some gotchas with the ui-router. I liked how he illustrated building re-usable components and deep linking through the live-coding session.

    What a great turnout! It was great to see live coding, versus just a live sales presentation. Entire presentation was well thought out, informative, and organized. As a recruiter it's great to see so many people being proactive to learn Angular. I have a TON of local clients searching for Java/Javascript candidates with Angular &/or Backbone experience. Local clientsI have actively recruiting Angular folks include ADP, Nokia, Here.com, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, United Health Group, and MIT Lincoln Lab just to name a few. Please contact me if you are in the search for a new position, or if you need some tips with your resume. Resumes can go to [masked] or you can call me directly at[masked]-1107. Great to see you all! Lauren

    Nothing like live coding. Reminds me of those brilliant professors solving problems over 6 blackboards. Not just an insight into the problem but an journey with the mind of the presenter. I could feel my brain growing new connections. Bravo to John Jensen and kudos to Cengage. Makes you think they might be on the right path in transforming education.

    Got family stuff - but am hoping this will be recorded or slides / notes will be made available.

      We've got a video camera from our in-house video group so we'll be able to record something pretty close to HD quality.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
