AngularJS is a JavaScript framework that focuses on enhancing browser-based applications with MVC capability. Miško Hevery started the project in 2009, while working at Google, and now it's showing up in applications like the YouTube app for PlayStation 3.

In this episode of Breaking Open, Marakana Instructor Simeon Franklin goes behind the scenes with the guy who started it all. He and Miško will talk about the beginnings of AngularJS, how the project came to be sponsored by Google, the community around Angular, alternative frameworks, documentation, its relationship to other Google projects (like Dart), and how Angular addresses issues around SEO.

Interesting interview; nice to get a feel for what AngularJS is trying to accomplish.

I've been following EmberJS for two years now and have extensively played with it, but there was "this other thing called AngularJS out there" that I knew very little about except that it was really good also (and that the testing framework was awesome!)

I'll have to beef up my efforts to learn more about AngularJS. Now to find the time...
