RESTing in AngularJS

A session at NFJS New England Software Symposium

Friday 18th March, 2016

5:00pm to 6:30pm (EST)

Asynchronous AJAX calls, especially those that deal with REST principles are something that all client side frameworks support, and AngularJS is no different. However, in order to truly benefit from AngularJS's support for asynchronous calls, one must understand the various moving parts that make this a reality. This includes promises (with AngularJS' $q library), $http and $resource.

In this session we will explore all the three components that make async calls in AngularJS possible. We will start with understanding the “why” of promises, and how we are to consume and produce promises. We will then dive into some of the inner workings of $http and how it leverages promises under the covers. We will end with an overview of $resource, which combines $http and promises to make working with REST-ful resources a breeze.
