We have an exciting talk coming on 8/18!
Famo.us/Angular: A case study of AngularJS as a framework for frameworks
Speaker: Zack Brown (bio below)
Famo.us is a newcomer on the web framework scene. It allows developers to create high performance, cross-platform apps with first-class animations and interactions, but it takes an approach that’s very different from traditional HTML and CSS. While Famo.us shines as a rendering engine, it is not an MVC. On its own it can lack structure, testability, and streamlined data management. AngularJS, on the other hand, handles each of these very well. This talk will describe the technical challenges and considerations of integrating these two seemingly orthogonal yet complementary libraries, while highlighting AngularJS’s ability to be a “framework for frameworks.”
Zack Brown is a developer and partner at Thomas Street. Over the last 10 years, he has developed desktop and web applications in technologies ranging from C to .NET, Java to Rails, Flash to PHP, and most recently, AngularJS and Famo.us.
Since starting to work with AngularJS two years ago, he has built Angular apps for companies big and small, including Coca-Cola, the Seattle Space Needle, and Ford. Zack studied computer science at the University of Washington and currently lives in San Francisco.
