Angular.js with Don Gregory

AngularJS is a really cool client side framework that is designed to eliminate DOM manipulation from your controllers/views. It adds clarity to the function and intent of your application views. It also facilitates easy unit testing of your JavaScript code. Come learn how AngularJS uses declarative HTML to teach the browser new tricks.

Don Gregory is a senior developer at Follett Software and have been there for over 7 years. He has worked primarily with Java and Javascript, but have also done work with CoffeeScript and Flex. At Follett I've learned the value of Agile development and have become passionate about test driven development. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 10 years, my 3 children, and my dog, who is a Chiweenie.

Also, we have a new food sponsor for February: Veredus. Kimberly Moore from Veredus will be available to answer questions about her company.

    Just the right level of detail (at least for those of us who haven't used it already).

    That was an excellent talk. I had glanced briefly at Angular.js, but hadn't realized the power it puts into your hands. I don't mean it pejoratively when I say that it reminds me of Visual Basic.
