AngularJS is certainly the talk of the town in the web-app world these days, and web/app developers across the world are having to get to grips with the finer points of the framework because let’s face it, once you do, you’re able to take your development to another level.
As a web and mobile app developer myself, I went to great lengths to familiarise myself with this new technology. I found the learning process actually quite easy, perhaps because I was so enthusiastic about seeing the end results, but also because of the way it’s been made. It’s not just fun to work with, it’s interesting too, and what you see as a result of your commitment to learning it is better than what you would think possible.
First Lets answer the for the question,
What is AngularJS ?
AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. Angular’s data binding and dependency injection eliminate much of the code you would otherwise have to write. And it all happens within the browser, making it an ideal partner with any server technology.

Simply Angular is an open source framework, developed by Google, it changes the way you think about web apps, since it handles all the glue code, so you don’t have to update HTML manually or listen for events, like you do with jQuery.
During my trial and error mastering of AngularJS, I found three significant aspects to the learning process which I would like to share with you, so as you too may benefit from effective utilisation of the new kid on the block in software development. So without further ado, let’s get down to it:.
