AngularJS: Is it time to drop everything for it?

Submitted Aug 5, 2012

Get to know AngularJS, its strength and weakness.


AngularJS brings a completely new way to develop front-ends by letting you extend the HTML of your web app.

In particular data-binding is done directly in the HTML, which makes your app more readable and removes all kinds of DOM manipulation we usually do with jQuery.

But what’s the catch?
Is not Backbone enough already?
Should we drop everything for it?

I hope to provide you with some answers during this session.


Familiarity with Javascript front-end coding (jQuery, Backbone or others).
