Product Description

Product Description

AngularJS is a JavaScript framework that can help you write web applications quickly using less code. AngularJS is not a library; it is not a collection of tools to help you achieve a specific goal. Rather, at its core, it is an entirely different way of thinking about writing web applications. As such, AngularJS has certain opinions about how you should be using it. Whereas in the vanilla JS world, you are given a blank canvas on which to paint, AngularJS provides structure, organization and patterns. In order to master AngularJS, you must understand how to adhere to its guidelines and why the guidelines exist in the first place.

This book is intended for intermediate JavaScript programmers. No attempt has been made to explain the JavaScript syntax used (except in the cases where AngularJS may introduce a peculiarity), nor do we explain concepts such as closures, function chaining, callbacks, or other common patterns.

What we do explain are basic AngularJS concepts, components, and their applications. We provide examples along the way, answer questions, and correct common misconceptions. Together, we’ll build a working single-page weblog application using AngularJS, which will help you become proficient with using AngularJS to go out and create your own applications.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Ready for Primetime 6 May 2013
By David Franklin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Simply put, this book is a very early draft and is not ready for sale. Bleeding Edge Press has only published two books to date and apparently believes that publishing an e-book only technical book allows them to forgo quality editorial review. Many other early drafts of books used to crowd source editor and technical review exceed the quality of this version. The book is full of gramatical and technical errors. More importantly, the author's laying out of AngularJS is disorganized, lacks structure and is often out of context.

This is a first book for the author and its a solo effort. While the author has contributed to a few AngularJS peripheral projects, he does not appear to have the breadth and depth of knowledge or experience with AngularJS to write this book without close editorial oversight. The BackboneJS book just published by Bleeding Edge has five authors and a couple of them have long histories with Backbone and/or have published before. That depth of knowledge and experience is simply not present in this book and it shows.

This said, if you are new to AngularJS, this book is not the place to begin. It will quickly discourage you (AngularJS is not as disorganized as this book makes it seem). I understand that there is a void when it comes to AngularJS books - but unfortunately the publisher has rushed to fill that void and severely compromised this book in the process. Adding insult to injury, the publisher sells this same book elsewhere (google the title) at a discount. Not cool and not a great way to establish trust with your audience.

Real shame - it had promise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful complement to other Angular docs 9 May 2013

I just finished the Oreilly book on AngularJS and found very useful insights in this book. It's small, not meant to be comprehensive. I like the writing style, I consider this a good purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's rather a diary than an instruction book 23 Jun 2013
By Ruxo Zheng - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been using AngularJS half a year and this is my first AngularJS book I read to consolidate my knowledge. However, the book is quite disappointed. There is no book's introduction that giving an insight of who should be its audience.. My recommend is the audience should have been using AngularJS before reading, otherwise you'll be completely lost. The topics in each chapter are broken. There is little connections between one topic to another and you will often need to imagine the context the author is representing. The writing style is mixed between cookbook and narrative, but without focusing on the audience, the author often jumps into a new context without explanation.. and this, to me, is more like a diary rather than a book.

Despite the bad representation style, the book covers all features AngularJS has and the author also puts many interesting example of each feature. The book is not completely waste, but it could have been better made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easier to Understand 13 May 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
This was my second attempt at AngularJS and I think this book made it much easier for me to move forward. I found it was easy to apply the tools to my projects. It's a good resource to have on my shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Developing an AngularJS Edge 14 May 2013
By Screane - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book/guide is great for someone who already knows a bit about their JavaScript. It won't be useful to you if you go in without JS knowledge already, however works perfect for someone who can navigate ins and outs currently. Has great examples, Q/A, and gets you on the road to using AngularJS to create apps.
