West Monroe's Dennis Sheppard to present at October's .NET Developers Meetup.

The days of sprinkling some jQuery functions around your .NET Webforms are (thankfully) behind us.  Users are demanding rich applications with better user experiences. A lot of times, that means moving code to the client side. Unfortunately, the more code you move to the front-end, the harder it becomes to maintain.  JavaScript MV* frameworks aim to solve all your problems.  And while lately it seems like there's a new JavaScript framework every other week, Angular has taken a clear lead as the (current) front runner in the JS framework wars.  

However, using Angular doesn't mean you have to abandon .NET MVC on the front-end.  You can integrate just a little Angular into your applications, or go all out with entire Single Page Apps.

Angular's roller coaster learning curve is notorious in the front-end community, at least partially due to doing things "The Angular Way."  We'll talk about "The Angular Way" of front-end development by covering Angular best practices.  We'll also level out the learning curve by covering the basics of AngularJS modules, controllers, directives, services, and the magic of two-way data binding.  Finally, we will discuss how .NET developers can leverage Angular in both greenfield and brownfield applications using existing .NET technologies.

Speaker
Dennis Sheppard is a Software Architect on the application development team at West Monroe Partners.  He has shed a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in the last few years focusing on front-end web development, but has worked (and played) in the .NET world throughout his career.
