I'm running a course on AngularJS in my town next month, and now I'm in the planning stages. Here's a two-page outline with comment access - I'd appreciate any thoughts! Am I missing anything? Is there anything I could cut out?

Thanks!

I'm doing some performance analysis and unfortunately losing a lot of stack trace to deferred calls. Anyone have any advice for identifying these functions? Maybe it's a $digest loop?

Anyone else out there getting hit by tons of image resizing delays? I have an idea for an improvement I'd like to discuss.

This app has 30 instances of the same image, all the same size, in thumbnails on the left. But that is not the image's native size - it's being scaled in the browser. When that left panel is scrolled, Chrome (at least) is doing a bunch of resizing on the fly, which is taking a big chunk out of my framerate.

The photos may end up being resized when that side panel is resized, so prerendering it on the server at a different resolution isn't a solution.

My idea for an improvement is a new Angular directive that renders the image to a canvas at the proper size and uses that for an image. My hope is that that would front-load all the resizing and, during a scroll, Chrome wouldn't have any recalculation to do.

What do you think? Is there a simpler way to avoid the fps-eating scaling that Chrome is doing? Anyone see any obstacles to this canvas approach?

Would this be useful to anyone else?

I'm considering AngularDart, mostly because I want type checking, and I'm having a hard time getting perspective on the community support and feature parity it's got. Are there features in AngularJS missing from AngularDart? Is it true the core team behind AngularJS is working on AngularDart?

Thanks for any insights!

My app can have 20-30 images at 500-1000kb each.  Just replaced all of my

ng-src='base64image'

directives with a custom duo:

watch-proxy='imageChanged'
watch-proxy-src='base64image'

Requires me to manually fire 'imageChanged' whenever base64image is updated by the user but check out the memory pressure before & after :D

I want to publish a service I made for AngularJS. Can/should I prefix the name with "angular" or "ng," or are those kind of reserved for offiical angular projects?

Ahoy - I'm new to AngularJS and loving it so far - thought I'd share a screenshot test strategy we're using.

We want to make a limited release of our new Apps "installable app" to a few pilot customers.  What's the best practice for a scenario like this?  If we publish a listing on the Apps Marketplace, anyone can install it, right?  Do we need to let everyone install it but then show unauthorized users a "coming soon" screen or something?
