In the talk we'll be highlighting Angular, explaining its motivation and walking through some of its cooler features. Angular is what HTML would have been if it was designed for web apps rather than documents. Angular is a Javascript framework and HTML compiler, and provides a lot of very nice abstractions for authors of a modern web application. It provides two-way data binding between HTML elements and their Javascript models, obviating the need for tedious DOM manipulation. It allows you to write your own HTML tags and even create, if desired, your own domain-specific language, attaching behavior to HTML elementsand attributes. Angular provides these features and more in a framework built with testability in mind, allowing you to create maintainable applications.
