Intro to AngularJS Directives

One of the most powerful pieces of AngularJS is the HTML compiler and its extension api called "directives". During this meetup we'll dive into how the compiler works and how to create new directives and using these tame all sorts of DOM manipulation problems. Karl Seamon, Software Engineer from Google will present.

After, there will be a presentation on rendering templates on the server side for SEO purposes with AngularJS using PhantomJS. Adam Parrish and James Wanga from HBO will present.

    Very informative! One technical suggestion for next time is to have both screens show the laptop screen; hard to see from the one side of the room. Thanks!

    Like Adam, I want to thank everyone for giving us more to think about. Over the next day or two I'm going to make some improvements to the demo app so watch the github repo posted above. If you have any questions feel free to email me at [masked]

    Hey all: thanks for all the great questions today. Here is the code for the PhantomJS integration we used.

    Here is Flixy (James' nifty Angular app)

    Email me at [masked] and I'll help with what I can. I need to check in the code on the machine we demoed off of for anyone who wants a look.

    Appreciated the speakers and got good information. However, it's a wide room and the presentations are difficult to see because it's only displayed on one side of the room. Please try to remedy this for future events. In the meantime, I'll just have to get there early :-)

    The example I used is here:

    The official documentation on creating directives is here:
