 ngModelController: Making a more native directive - by Rhett Lowe    

ngModelController is the primary controller used every time we use the ngModeldirective. It is pre-designed to handle watching, updating, and validating your data. I'll show how to use this controller to make directives lighter, more efficient, more standardized. 

Putting the puzzle together - Road to Production by Eric Novins

We're about to launch the biggest comeback of eCards from Hallmark in a decade. I have about year and a half experience as a developer in the SPA (Single Page web-Application) space. This is my 2nd framework to actually use and launch to production. I worked first with Backbone, rebuilding a prototype system into a full product, then helping correct a development team on proper Backbone usages and to launch to production. 

Starting at Hallmark eCards, I was the first and only front-end developer here and was told I could finally choose my own framework. So Angular away! Started with a couple small prototypes, then off to the races building a Parity site of the existing .NET version (with better UX).

I have code to show and processes to talk about. I will answer how I figured things out, and where I think I could still do better. My goal is convey my very real experience of going to production and building an entire system with eCommerce features and analytics and programming challenges of a small team to release a website.

    Great job for all the presenters, and it was great to see so many Angular enthusiasts! I wanted to give everyone my email address because I was speaking very fast due to overdose of caffeine. :)
