About the Technology

AngularJS is a JavaScript-based framework that extends HTML, so you can create dynamic, interactive web applications in the same way you create standard static pages. Out of the box, Angular provides most of the functionality you’ll need for basic apps, but you won’t want to stop there. Intuitive, easy to customize, and test-friendly, Angular practically begs you to build more interesting apps.
