Wrap Up Angular Master Class Vienna + getting started links

Last week, Daniel Sack, Zsolt Zsigmondi and Paul Rohorzka attended the Angular JS masterclass at sektor5. AngularJS is well known Javascript framwork developed by Google that supports building highly dynamic single page applications (SPAs) running on modern browsers. The two day workshop was hosted by Pascal Precht and Christoph Burgdorf, together running thoughtram.

Both lecturers are well known in the AngularJS community, with Pascal being the creator of the well respected AngularJS module ngTranslate which supports building multilanguage applications.
The workshop started with the foundations of AngularJS 1.x. The topics covered ranged from basic concepts such as databinding, scopes, controllers to more advanced topics, especially writing custom directives. Pascal and Christoph also teached us concepts not that widely used, such as “controllerAs” syntax or “bindToController”. A big emphasis was made to support a smooth transition to both AngularJS 2.0 and ECMA-Script 6, both bringing massive changes in the development with JavaScript and especially AngularJS.

The material presented was always crisp and to the point, leaving enough room for discussions. Pascal and Christoph prepaired a great number of excersices where we could get hands-on experience with the topic. Throughout the course both of them proved their profound knowledge of the topic. And besides all content and work – the workshop was great fun as well!

As the majority of the attendees, we are looking forward to announced followup-workshops such as a testing-related workshop or a “master-master-class”.
