Understanding change detection in Angular by Ruben Vermeulen

Angular consists out of many fascinating patterns and concepts. One of these is Change Detection. This is one of the things many Angular developers come across on a daily basis but not always truly understand how it works and how they can benefit from it.
What Virtual DOM is for React, that’s what Change Detection is for Angular. We’ll check out how Change Detection determines what must be updated in the HTML and when something must be updated.

spoiler: it's not all about the size

Speaker: Jens Trio is a husband, father, cycling enthousiast and full stack developer at Teamleader, in no particular order.
