My slides are at http://jeffwhelpley.com/isomorphic-angular. Also, if you want to try out rendering Angular on the server yourself, following the instructions here to play with a command line tool I put together: https://github.com/gethuman/jangular.

If you do front end web development, you may have come across one or two AngularJS rants the past couple weeks. This is my response to all of those plus an attempt to lay out my thoughts on the future of Angular.

The US loss sucked yesterday and I thought at first that I shouldn't get so emotionally invested in any sports team. But upon further reflection I think that faith in sports teams as well as faith that we will eventually achieve other goals in our life is very important.
02 Jul 2014. I Believe... Loss. The United States Men's National Team (#USMNT) lost yesterday to Belgium and I am sadder than I probably should be. After all, they were beaten by a much better team. If it wasn't for a Superman-like effort by Tim Howard, the score could have been 0-5.

One interesting thing with this video. Matt says that Google ads have no impact on search rankings. That is true, but ads along with everything else that appears on the page at the same time as your organic search results (ex. instant answers) do have an impact on how often users click on site. For example, if you have the top spot, but then Google decides to put a banner ad above all the search results, that almost certainly will affect your clicks.

Even that, though, shouldn't affect ranking, because in most cases all the organic search results would be affected (negative or positive) in the same way.

...which in turn increases click through rate of organic listings (positive effect on SEO) and increases the number of visitors to the site (positive effect providing usability is strong).

Then there is the fact that more traffic = brand exposure (positive effect on SEO over time).

I had a back and forth with a React dev last week about Angular and this is the first of two followup posts I have planned. This one dives deeper into AngularJS performance, how it stacks up to other frameworks and if it is fast enough for your needs.
“Angular is slow. And with dirty checking and HTML parsing always will be. You can’t fix broken design. Do I have to tel…

This is the first in a series of upcoming posts to talk about the design and structure of a full-stack JavaScript codebase. I am starting off talking specifically about what I have been working on, but I hope to eventually create a more general guide in the future. In any case, I think there are a lot of ideas in here that can be re-used in a variety of different environments. #AngularJS   #NodeJS   #JavaScript   #HapiJS  
09 Jul 2014. Full-Stack JavaScript Code Organization. Code Organization. My opinions on how JavaScript code and code in general should physically be organized has changed over the years. This blog details my preferred method for organizing a large, full-stack JavaScript code base.

I created a blog post based on the content of my AngularJS presentation that you can see in this video at http://jeffwhelpley.com/angularjs. There are some links and other info in there that I didn't get to during the presentation.
