This month GeekNight covers basics of angular and state management in angular 6
Angular is a popular web application framework and as the applications grow large there are multiple components we have to manage. There are a lot of places from which the state gets updated and it gets very difficult to manage the state.
The talk will cover why we need state management, what are the different types of stores and how can we manage state more effectively.
