Angular gives you structure to build your applications. But what about your data? Firebase is a realtime database with clients for modern platforms and frameworks, including Angular. With Firebase, servers are 100% optional—you can define authentication rules, manage users, and sync data without any server-side code. We'll cover Firebase basics and build a realtime application with AngularFire, the Firebase bindings for AngularJS.
Tired of managing script tags and losing your sanity as your projects grow? Enter Browserify, a build tool that lets you write your code as Node modules and create a single bundle for the browser. Pair it with over 100,000 packages on npm and you get an incredibly powerful toolkit for assembling your Angular applications. We'll talk about organizing existing applications using Browserify, as well as how to publish open source packages that can be downloaded using npm or Bower. Ben will share his workflow and insights developed while maintaining 20 (and counting) open source Angular packages.
