Building an AngularJS App in Practice

There are plenty of AngularJS demos floating around but at this meetup we'll have two presentations about how AngularJS apps are being built in practice.

In the first presentation, James Wanga (from The Digital Self and HBO) will explain his opinionated re-think of the angular-seed skeleton for large applications. He'll cover his "convention over configuration" approach to organizing services, controllers, partials, filters and directives and speak about how to best integrate end-to-end and unit tests into his project skeleton.

Next, Eric Duran (from Lullabot) will demo how he built his first (impressive) AngularJS app, ChromeHAR. ChromeHAR allows you to drag-and-drop HTTP archive files into a web app and view them as if you were in Chrome Dev Tools.

      I'm glad the talk was helpful. I'll put together a testing presentation and pitch it to the google folks. Stay tuned.

    Great presentation, thank you guys. I wanted to respond to one question that was asked regarding sharing data between controllers and bouncing events off a $rootScope. First of all you would use a service to share anything between controllers and second, if you don't want to bounce events off a rootScope, then in your service you could return a property that is equal to $({}) and bind/trigger against it. Hope this helps :)

    Hi All,

    Here are my slides:
    and chromeHar:

    Also during my talk there was a question regarding AngularJS and preventing the event from propagation.

    I just looked at my source and and I didn't have the $event.stopPropagation() on the directive but I did have it on the actual function that was being called. So I'll add that to the slides.

    Thanks all for coming.
