The 3-days workshop was located in the UNPERFEKT Haus in Essen. The UNPERFEKT Haus is an open space for artists, students and musicians. It provides rooms, WLAN and a creative environment. It was a great location for the seminar and we all felt comfortable.
Our trainer was Robin Böhm who is the CEO/founder of Symetics GmbH. He works as a freelancer and does consulting, in-house training and workshops all around web technologies like AngularJS. During the 3-days he provided a lot of information and made a really intense workshop. The atmosphere was relaxed and Robin was open for discussions and questions - even during the lunch break.
- components vs. directives
- routing (with the new router from AngularJS 1.5)
- testing (with Jasmine)
- the promise API
- build tools
- books to continue
Robin also tried to give us an outlook on AngularJS 2 and how we can prepare our current projects for it.
There wasn’t much I did not like. The workshop covered all relevant topics and gave us a lot of useful insights into AngularJS and related stuff.
I can recommend it!
It was fast, well-prepared and very practical (we wrote code for about 1/3 of the time). The group was medium-sized, maybe 14 people (mostly Java developers). The only downside was that Robin sometimes provided too much detail on a particular topic. I’m more comfortable staying by the underlying concepts of a technology and dive into the nitty-gritty details when I’m working on it.
I’m looking forward to the next workshop! Thanks!
Best regards, Thomas.
