It doesn't have to be this way.

What if...

These things are possible, regardless of the web framework you're using.

Book Contents

What we'll cover

Modern AngularJS 1 is a tutorial, designed to teach you step-by-step how to create a serious modern AngularJS app: from empty-folder to deployment. Each chapter covers a topic and we provide full code examples for the entire project in the book.

Apps

What you'll learn

In this book we'll teach concepts and best practices through building a chat app, similar to Slack.

When you buy Modern AngularJS 1, you're not buying just a book, but a small library of code that contains the steps to build the whole example.

Stateless vs. Container Components

Use stateless, presentational components to form the building blocks of your application. We'll show you how to ensure your components are reusable by passing parameters across your view chain to your container component.

Data Architecture

Learn the ideas behind Redux by building an entire mini-implementation in ES6. We'll then cover how to integrate it into your AngularJS application in detail by hooking it to our Slack clone.

Handling Events with Redux

Learn how to map both synchronous and asynchronous Redux actions to user events. We'll integrate important middleware to analyze, debug and handle our data store.

Routing

Use UI Router to integrate routing as well as maintain and view our router state right inside our Redux store.

Production & Deployment

We'll cover how to deploy our complete application as well as take down all the necessary steps to differentiate a production build from our development environment.

And Much More!

In this package we include all of the source code for each checkpoint in the app. Learn best practices by example with our demo app.

"Great job guys! I’m a huge fan of the book and I’m already working the concepts into my own apps at work. This is an awesome resource on making modern, powerful AngularJS applications."

Entrepreneur & Computer Engineer

“I really liked that it takes AngularJS (1.x) up to the newest technologies like TypeScript and Redux, it really helps to shorten the technological gap between Angular (2+) and AngularJS. I also like that it provides clear standards on how to organise and structure an AngularJS app that were not available before.”

"Want to know what is deep inside AngularJS? This book helps angular teams to produce less bugs, more consistency, more stability and definitely more understanding about the deep inside of AngularJS. This book Makes you a Modern AngularJS Developer."

How much would it cost to rewrite your app in a new framework?

How many hours would your team spend learning the new system?

How long would it take to port over all of the edge-cases and test them?

Rewrites are risky. They can take months, hundreds of developer hours (and cost tens of thousands in salary time). But the app you already have can get the job done, with a little guidance.

Instead of wasting $10,000 (or more) and months of time on rewriting your app, give your team the tools they need to build quality, standardized, best-practice, modern code.
