This class is a two part series: Tuesday, March 21st from 6-8pm and Thursday, March 23rd from 6-8pm.


In the last few years, AngularJS has become one of the most popular front-end JavaScript frameworks for building fast and maintainable web apps. It's now widely used in production, ranging from small single-page apps to high-volume features on Google, Virgin America, HBO, MSNBC, Nike, Urban Outfitters, & more. In this workshop split over two evenings, learn the basics of how to get started with developing Angular apps and scaling them with further complexity. We'll use lots of demos to show practical applications of the framework's features, and students will leave the class with a portfolio of introductory Angular projects.

What we'll cover:

• What is AngularJS, and why use it?

• Overview of MVC (Model View Controller) Patterns, and how Angular fits in

• Expressions & Data Binding

• Built-in Directives

• Controllers & $scope

• Dependency Injection

• Angular 2.0


Students should have a working knowledge of HTML and JavaScript. Familiarity with other JavaScript frameworks will be beneficial, but is not required. Please bring a laptop with a text editor (Sublime Text 3 is recommended) and Chrome installed.
