North County AngularJS Discussion Group

This month Cory Ducker will be talking to us about directives, specifically the "what and why" and how to refactor to directives. Many people find directives to be one of the most confusing parts of Angular, but along with that complexity comes some incredible power, so you won't want to miss this opportunity to learn more about them!

--

The North County AngularJS Discussion Group meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at Walmart Labs in Carlsbad.

The format is an informal group discussion sparked by a quick presentation on an Angular topic by one of our members. Feel free to come with any questions that you'd like to pose to the group. Attendees typically have a wide range of experience with Angular, so please don't be afraid to join us if you are just learning or curious.

    Excellent talk by Cory on directives, practical usable tips such as the value of testing from the outset. Organizers have infective enthusiasm for Angular.

    Great overview of a small functional app. Covered some 101 and some more topics for those familiar with angular

    Curious how the AngularJS people feel about 15:58 in this. Isn't it better to do templates via Polymer? Or does Angular still have a place?

      Polymer is a way to build reusable web components. You can build a google-map polymer web component that you can pass some information to and have it draw a map. Angular is a complete framework for building apps with Services, Routing, Server Communication, Event broadcasting, etc. Angular Directives would be the closest comparison you could make to Polymer web components the main difference is that Angular directives don't call the underlying Web Components APIs which are a web standard. I'm pretty sure the Polymer team and Angular teams (both being under the Google umbrella) will cross-pollenate and Angular end up standardizing their custom elements to use the Web Components API at some point.

      Ditto to what Tommy said. I also read somewhere that angular plans to work toward better binding between the two among other things. They are sure to embrace one another.

    Is there typically food at this event? Not (only) trying to bum a free meal, but decide whether to eat dinner or not.

    July 22, 2014

    • Scott M.

      No, we won't have food available tonight (and typically don't). Every once in awhile we'll have a nice recruiter who provides pizza for us, in which case I'll announce it beforehand so people can plan accordingly.

    • Jeff T.

      OK, thanks for letting me know!

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.
