September Meeting: AngularJS-beyond basics

Join us and Logical Advantage on Tuesday, September 23, at 6:00 PM in the Mt. Kilimanjaro/Mt. Everest rooms of the Charlotte Microsoft Campus. AngularJS is an amazing JavaScript library with a high learning curve for the uninitiated. Everyone with MVC experience knows about Controllers in that world, but what is an Angular controller? How is it the same and how is it different? Directives are the building blocks of the DOM components of your Angular app. It’s important to know when to use them and how they interact with your app controllers and with their own controllers. You will learn how to create controllers, add directives, and how they interact with each other in a real application.

The meeting presenter is James Huston.

James has been working in web development and application architecture with a sprinkle of Unix system admin for far longer than he likes to talk about. From enterprise applications with PHP and MySQL (yes, used the E word with LAMP) to most recently realtime modern web apps using NodeJS and Angular he has a wide range of experience with web technologies. On top of that he loves to learn and share what he knows with anyone who will listen and a few people who don’t like to anymore. You can follow him on GitHub.
