Angular, React, Meteor, Ember, Backbone, Knockout…
How do you choose?
Making the wrong decision can be very costly.
Both companies and developers currently face this problem.
Getting started with any new technology is an investment. Whether that’s in time, money or both.
Joe Eames is a software craftsman that has made some big bets on Angular.
Joe is the founder of ng-conf, the largest Angular conference, and is now working with other industry leaders to help educate developers about the framework.
I asked him, “Why are you so confident in the future of Angular?” He gave me six convincing reasons to believe in the framework.
I’ll let you read his response for yourself.
Here are the six reasons why Joe Eames recommends Angular:
First, we have performance. Angular 2 is fast. Blazing fast; in fact, no framework is faster. Some are right there with it neck and neck, but nothing is faster than Angular 2.
Next, Angular 2 was built with modern tools and standards in mind. It supports ES6 modules, tools like webpack and SystemJS, and has even helped push the standards by helping to pioneer decorators in ECMAScript.
The mental model of Angular 2 is much more simplified than Angular 1. No longer do you have to choose between three similar concepts when designing the major building blocks of your application. Instead, components handle everything.
Angular 2 is the natural successor to Angular 1, so it’s poised to become just as popular, if not even more so than Angular 1 was. That means that learning it will likely be good for your career, and later, you will have an easier time finding experienced Angular 2 developers.
Angular 2 is also a complete solution; it includes rendering, compilation, binding, server communication, and unit testing all together. No need to worry about trying to choose from twenty different libraries when you actually need to make an HTTP call.
Finally, Angular 2 was built from the ground up to solve the same problems Angular 1 solves: everything from simple demo apps to large enterprise-scale applications. It is highly testable, supports accessibility and localization, and works great for one man shops through to huge teams.
