WDI Day Thirty-Four: Intro to Angular

We started getting familiar with the structure for Angular applications, and how Angular is a framework where everything is very modular. Learning the different pieces and how they fit together was a little bit of a struggle. After being immersed in Ruby on Rails for a couple of weeks, it’s going to take a little while for my brain to readjust to JavaScript.

I learned about how directives are markers on a DOM element that tell Angular JS’s HTML compiler to attach a specified behavior to that DOM element. Angular expressions remind me a lot of inline Ruby code, which allow you to execute JS code in HTML files.

We got a head start on our homework, where I found myself running into errors. Hopefully when I work on it some more this weekend, all will get better.
