Before I decided to go ahead and learn this AngularJS framework, I had to approach a lot of JavaScript professionals who already worked with different frameworks available in the market.

Everyone advised me to go with AngularJS as they say this is the future – you can see my Google Plus conversation with framework or web application developers at “Any good JS Frameworks to recommend for my new project?”

Thanks to Bill King, who advised me of a nice introductory video tutorial on AngularJS at “Video Tutorial by Dan Wahlin – AngularJS Fundamentals in 60-ish Minutes”.
