We'll learn about the basics of AngularJS (https://angularjs.org/), a
popular client-side MVC application framework. Frameworks such as these
make it easier to manage data-rich views by keeping everything in sync with
each other, and with data in the back-end. To understand how libraries like
AngularJS differ from jQuery, we'll be taking our NoiseTwitter app (
converting it from one that uses jQuery into one that uses AngularJS
I'm not a AngularJS pro myself, so I'm sticking to introductory concepts.
Depending on how long this takes, this might be a two-part class - or, it
might be the last in the series. We'll see!

lecture series, taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at complete
beginners who are interested in making websites, as well as seasoned
professionals looking to brush up on the latest and greatest.
Front-end web development is all about making code that runs in the browser
(versus code that runs on the server). There isn't a big focus on web
design (creating wireframes and mockups), but we do cover best practices
for turning these designs into beautiful code.
The class starts on Monday at 8pm, and goes until 10pm! Plan to arrive
EARLY, as the class has been filling up very fast. We will have a recap of
last week's material starting at 7:30pm. If you're either new, couldn't
make last week's class or you simply need a refresher, come early and we'll
go through a simple tutorial.
This class does go in a series, but the series can last up to half a year.
Don't let it discourage you if you're starting from the middle - attend
recaps and labs and you should be able to catch up!
This class and the space in which it's taught are entirely free to attend.
Please bring a laptop. Read all of the details here:
