Developing Modern, Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) in JavaScript with AngularJS, REST, PhoneGap/Cordova & More (TTC4689) Course Details:

AngularJS is a powerful client-side JavaScript MVC framework from Google that supports simple, maintainable, responsive and modular Rich Internet Applications. It supports automatic bi-directional data binding to and from JavaScript model objects, form controllers, and validation. Direct support for working with REST services and customizable routing, a comprehensive set of HTML tag-driven directives for View description, and the ability create your own custom directives are among the many reasons that AngularJS is so widely used in the RIA JS developer community.
