Angular teaches your old browser new tricks. It is what HTML would have been had it been designed for building web-applications.
Angular is radical because it eliminates boilerplate code with declarative rather than imperative syntax.

In this session, we will focus on how AngularJS makes applications a joy to test and look at how Angular compares to other web application toolkits, like Backbone, Ember and Knockout.
