ONE BY ONE

DIRECTIVE

  • originally: reusable piece of logic
  • need to define:
    • the relationships
    • responsibility
    • communication

DECISIONS

when to make

?

  • as soon as you know
  • as late as possible

each decision reduces flexibility

each bad decision costs A LOT

each change costs

JAVASCRIPT FATIGUE

TOOLS

don't focus on

instead think about the

TOOLS

 PROBLEMS YOU SOLVE

ENTERPRISE

  • budget-driven development

  • big, distributed teams

  • backends being unavailable

  • BE changes force FE changes

  • BE needs to be implemented prior to FE

Fake HTTP backend implementation

when(method, url, [data], [headers])
  .respond(function(...){
    return [HTTP_STATUS, DATA, HEADERS];
  });
$httpBackend

~90%

actual development

FE-BE
sync

~10%

:

Frontend development
with Backend-less approach

Digest Cycle

click!

{{myVar}}
{{::myVar}}
<input ng-model="myVar">

FUTURE

  • remake is a big investment
  • how about Angular 2?

REMEMBER

if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail

THANK YOU!
