Angular: the pointy end of an acute future

In management circles, the Peter principle asserts that people will tend to be promoted until reaching their level of incompetence. Applied to computer technologies, this cynical rule of thumb posits that "anything that works will be used in progressively more challenging applications until it fails". We could hardly wish for a more fitting description of the journey of JavaScript.

JavaScript, this harmless bumbler of a language which was never designed to have a massive role in development, is gradually taking over everything. Atwood's Law asserts that any application that can be written in JavaScript will eventually be written in JavaScript. This trend was evident already seven years ago. In order to deal with the inexorable, developers started flocking around jQuery, the library that actually made low-level DOM manipulation in JavaScript bearable, sometimes almost fun.

But time marches on. It's 2014, and we're all writing app-level code in JavaScript. Here jQuery won't help. Something more powerful is needed. Enter AngularJS, a framework that allows you to bind HTML and code together, create the HTML elements and attributes you always wanted, and manage your application puzzle as independent but pluggable pieces. Angular powers up your JavaScript, while also shielding you from the most dangerous misfeatures in the language.

Meanwhile, bright people are actively working on JavaScript, bringing much-needed abstraction mechanisms into the still-messy language. AngularJS will be ready to embrace those, and if you decide to follow the Angular path, so will you.

In this 1-hour talk, I demonstrate Angular with a couple of live coding sessions, and guide you through its role in the current evolution of programming on the web.
