Description

This course introduces the AngularJS framework, which has become a popular JavaScript framework for the development of "single page" Rich Internet Applications.  The AngularJS framework augments applications with the "model-view-controller" pattern which makes applications easier to develop and test because there is a separation of responsibilities within the code.  Although there are many benefits to using the AngularJS framework it is fairly different than the way "typical" web applications involving JavaScript have been designed.  This AngularJS training course will provide an introduction to the benefits of AngularJS, so course participants can start to develop responsive applications quickly using the framework.
