    Really enjoyable. As others have said, would have been good to dive a little deeper - particularly in the first session. Otherwise great though, and really looking forward to the next installment

    Did anyone recorded that meeting? I got intrigued by Q&A - lot of positive comments.

    • Josh M.

      Sorry - not this time - we are looking into what we can do in the future.

      Hey Josh. For years I have been record my meeting using my laptop. Always been fairly painless.

    Peter talking next time +1, Mic +1, video recording +1 and perhaps idea for the future: angular hackaton if we have enough interest. Also it would be good to raise the bar a bit: under the hood, testing, CI. Nice one guys. Let's keep it going.

    September 20, 2012

    • Josh M.

      Thanks Marek - we hope to have Pete talk at a future meetup. Hackathon sounds cool too.

    was a good first meetup, well attended. Q&A was clearly the best part - lots of engagement and lively debate

    I enjoyed the first one but I have a few suggestions:

    It would be really good to get a microphone set up because both of the speakers were really quiet. I didn't catch the persons name who was explaining how the digest works (sorry), but I would love to hear more from him about how things work under the hood. He was very good at explaining the functionality. Maybe he can be convinced to talk at the next one?

    As others have said it would be extremely beneficial to see an actual application, how it's structured, how it uses the scope, etc.

    • Josh M.

      Thanks Christopher - yes we will be looking into getting a mic for next time - sorry if you found it hard to hear.

    • Peter Bacon D.

      Thanks Christopher! I will talk at a future MeetUp, I promise.

    The Q&A was definitely the best part, and gave the most information -- we kind of new what AngularJS does, and probably read a list of advantages on the website. It's the stuff we can't get from the front-page that are most useful.

    It was good to see so many people at this meetup. My recommendations would be:
    * Microphone for presenters
    * maybe another screen for guys at the back
    * Having pre-approved questions answered first then throw it to the flow.

    When i say preapproved, have a few interesting questions from the meetup group be prepared and answered. Given time floor question scan be answered.

    I'd also suggest keeping a lid on some of the answers as they did trail of quite wildly. I was hoping to ask a few:
    * Is there an event which we can hook when Angular populates the view? (something like a prePopulate, postPopulate)
    * What is the best way to provide animations for when data is loading?
    * Will multiselects be handled better in future?
    * What is the best approach to progressive enhancement?
    * What is the best/recommended approach to hiding custom NG:elements used for templating. On older browsers it can look pretty bad (not to mention the initial flashing)

      Oh and one more: Is there a recommended way to do pagination using the resources plugin?

  • Daniel P.

    Was really nice. One quick tip: from the really nice Q n' A I really feel there is a need to get a bit more "practical". The JsFiddle stuff was really nice but would be even better to see an angular app built from top to bottom (obviously not an enormous one!) that would cover a good amount of questions the people asked in this first meeting!

    What do you guys think??

      Add you idea to the next meetup thread for a chance to win an AngularJS t-shirt!

      AngularJS proposes a different way of thinking. Is not just a different library, you have to switch in AngularJS mode in order to develop nice apps. I think we could introduce problem and solution discussion and patterns and antipatterns. For example, this is a typical solution for a directive and usually you have to solve these problems ....

    Thanks everyone for a great first meetup. Really excited about taking this forward.

    September 20, 2012

  • Alexey G.

    Amazing!

    September 20, 2012

  • Oleg B.

    I enjoyed Q n'A session. Regarding to the presentation probably is better to have more structured presentations where a particular problem problem is solved. For example scopes and all related to scopes, services and all related to services.

    As for the first time this was great.
