Dreamforce + AngularJS
In a relatively short amount of time AngularJS has taken front end web development by storm. If you’re a Salesforce developer you might want to learn how you can take advantage of this widely adopted UI framework. If you’re an AngularJS developer the Salesforce1 platform is a ready made Enterprise Cloud platform either to run your AngularJS app, or to connect to via Salesforce1’s open APIs.
Either way, there is for all intents and purposes an AngularJS mini conference going on at Dreamforce this year. Because of the close relationship between Ionic and AngularJS, I’ve decided to include Ionic sessions in this session list.
