Who this book is for

This book is for web developers familiar with Javascript.

It doesn't cover the history of AngularJS, and it's not a pitch to convince you that AngularJS is the best framework on the entire web. It's a guide to help you learn everything you need to know about AngularJS in as few pages and with as many examples as possible.

    Comments about oreilly Instant AngularJS Starter:

    I did not know much about Angular before I read this book. By the end of the book I understood what Angular was about but I was not ready to write a real application.

    The book delivers on what it promises but to write a real application you will need more information.

    Comments about oreilly Instant AngularJS Starter:

    This book is short - and that's a good thing - more likely to be read to the end.
    It did get me started with Angular.js

    The substantial parts are:

    'Quick Start': a 12 page walk-through of a significant application that does work, showing multiple views in a single page application, using view mapping. It is therefore a more comprehensive example than the tutorial at The data model demonstrates localStorage as well as hardcoded JSON, but I was disappointed that server side data via angular was not discussed.

    'Top 5 features you need to know about': 27 pages discussing some of the auto-magic of angular.js including templates, angular directives, and 2-way data binding.
