About this event

In this workshop, you'll learn AngularJS, an MVC framework that was created by Googlers and is now one of the most popular frameworks. AngularJS helps you create large data-driven webapps with dynamic interfaces.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs. This workshop will be taught by Bianca, Developer and Co-Founder of Telegraph Academy.


Attendees should be comfortable with HTML/CSS fundamentals (HTML tags and attributes, CSS selectors) and JavaScript fundamentals (syntax, data structures, conditionals, loops). Attendees should also have learned the DOM API (access and modication methods). That means that you either attended our HTML 101 workshop, JS 101 workshop, and JS for the Web workshop, or that you learned those concepts online.

You can review them online at a few places:

•  HTML/CSS: Khan Academy's HTML/CSS course, Codecademy's HTML/CSS course, GDI SF HTML/CSS slides

• JS: Codecademy's JS course, Khan Academy's Intro to JS course, GDI SF JS slides

• DOM API: Khan Academy's "Making Webpages Interactive" course

Tech requirements:

• Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) and charger.

• A modern web browser - either Chrome or Firefox.

• A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free; available for Mac or PC) or Notepad++ (PC).

Topics covered:

Angular directives, controllers, services, Debugging Angular apps, Animation in Angular
