JS-HTML5 Web App Workshop with Angular JS and Zurb Foundation

Learn from the pros! Join us for a half-day, hands-on tour as our experts guide you through the process of building a single page application (SPA) with Angular JS. The class is developed and taught by seasoned practitioners who have implemented enterprise-class SPAs for NVISIA’s healthcare, financial services and public utility customers.

The class is completely free and all of the required software is also free thanks to the open-source community!

The stack used for our sample SPA application includes Zurb’s Foundation as a fluid grid for HTML5 responsive design and Jasmine for unit testing the Angular JavaScript application.  Additionally, attendees will get to see node.js in action, as it handles the server-side request by connecting to a server on each developer’s laptop.
