Angular JS QuickStart: extremely productive development of HTML5 webapps

DATE: Wednesday the 25th of March

Many services and applications have demonstrated the power of HTML5 platform. However, designing, building and maintaining a complex JS app is a challenge. The workshop presents an ever more popular Open Source framework, the extremely robust, productive and simple Angular JS (updated for 1.3).



The workshop is full-day (8 hours) from 9:00 to 18:00, with one hour lunch break.

Carlo’s passion for Software Development began with his C128, then grew with Linux, Java/JavaScript, web & enterprise applications, and now to cloud & mobile. After a PhD and Research Univ.of Genoa and CNIT, an exciting time at startup Eptamedia, he’s now a Solution Architect and Senior Trainer at NIS srl. His communication style as an architect and trainer, both technically precise and able to present complex topics to an heterogeneous audience has been appreciated online (slideshare pres.on Hudson with 110Kviews) and at many JUG/Comm. events from Javapolis 2005 to Codemotion Rome.


“The workshop presents an ever more popular and Open Source framework, the extremely robust, productive and simple Angular JS.
Angular JS provides a set of almost “magic” tools that simplify front-end development, making it remarkably easier to:

-develop web apps that can be ported on Desktop & Mobile
-easy to test
-extremely modular and reusable
-easy to integrate with graphic resources (CSS, HTML), integrated Designer->Developer workflow
while at the same time being extremely productive

The workshop has been fully updated with new features of Angular 1.3, and the roadmap to 1.4/2.0.


“Features of a modern HTML5 web application
-ease of use
-responsive design and multi-device support
-off-line support
-REST services integration
Limitation of traditional frameworks
The ideal framework

An example: managing online orders for Pizza5 franchise

Enter Angular JS
Main concepts: MVC, data binding, HTML-oriented
Lab: writing Pizza5 Home Page

Data binding (two-way, applied to both values and tag attributes)
Lab: customer registration form

From Data Binding to MVC / MVVM
-controllers and their role
-form values initialization
-basic form definition and validations
Lab: defining model and controller for pizza menu and order cart

Managing state with scopes (local and global)
Lab: sharing data between page sections

Development and Debug tools: AngularJS Batarang, Angular Hint

Advanced Data Binding: iterating on collections
Lab: generating the pizza menu

Writing controllers: reacting to page events and user actions
-the “”controller as”” approach
Lab: adding pizzas to cart

Advanced Views:
Lab: filtering pizzas by name and ingredients

AngularJS’s secret: Dependency Injection
-what is it?
-how to configure it
Lab: creating a Service

Accessing Back-End resources
Lab: integrating REST services with $resource

Application Structure
Lab: splitting the menu and cart modules

Navigation, $routeProvider, partial views
Lab: splitting the app in navigable and bookmarkable sections

Test support (in two minutes)
Lab: unit testing controllers

References for further exploration
-Angular-ready component libraries
-integrating custom code
-what are directives?
-Angular Material Design
-learning resources”


“This workshop distilles a mix of theory and practice. Course topics will be explored by developing a simple but realistic web application, and Angular APIs and features will be introduced and demonstrated by implementing the requirements of a modern HTML5 app:
-high interaction
-stylish design
-integration with REST or event-based backends
-integrating components of heterogeneous libraries
-managing state and browser history

At the end of the workshop the learner will have acquired the tools and know-how needed to structure an AngularJS applications, including
-Angular features and potential
-the why’s and how’s of MVC
-exploiting Dependency Injection for modular and reusable apps
-making testing easier

The minimum necessary theory, and lots of examples and experiments to learn “hands on”.


This workshop is aimed at web developers, JavaScript developers but also developers with any background who, after learning JS basics, feel the need for learning a structured and productive approach to developing awesome HTML5 sites and apps with Angular JS.


Familiarity with HMTL and basic knowledge of programming language.

Participants are required to bring their own laptop. The labs require an HTML5 Browser (Chrome or Firefox), text editor or IDE, supporting HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript.

The workshop will be held only if the minimun number of attendees is reached
