Want To Hire an Expert AngularJS Developer? Here’s How

AngularJS What?

AngularJS, affectionately (or lazily) referred to as Angular, is a framework developed by Google in 2010 under the MIT License. In layman’s terms, Angular helps developers build super awesome web apps (Netflix, for all you movie buffs) really fast.

If you speak geek lingo, that translates as Angular decouples your DOM manipulation from application logic and the client side code and the server code. It provides a structured way to build your applications by providing separation of concern and allow extensive testing.

Initially, it was thought that AngularJS is Model View Controller. But some developers argued that it was Model View ViewModel or Model View Presenter till the time Igor Minar came with this article and declared it as Model View Whatever! Some developers believe Angular is the only framework that doesn’t make MVC (Model View Controller) seem like putting lipstick on a pig.

So.. Only Jquery Developers Gets a Pass?


This is subjective. An experienced jQuery developer would understand how the web app is built and understand the intricacy of browsers.

jQuery is a JavaScript library, whereas AngularJS is a framework. There is a significant amount of shift in the thought process and execution.

Experienced jQuery developers can pick up Angular skills really fast under resource guidance, and may find it easier to develop apps than others.

Can Anyone Use AngularJS?

Of course! As long as you are a Front-end or Full-stack developer, it doesn’t matter what degree you have. You can be an arts graduate and rock amazing web applications built with AngularJS.

Ideally, a candidate should be using AngularJS for at least a year to be comfortable with it, but don’t take our word for it.

A lot of candidates claim that they know AngularJS even if they have heard about it. The best way to filter the potential candidates would be to assess the candidate based on their skills in AngularJS with an online assessment suite.
