Angular vs React – John Ptacek

This was the year React vs Angular in the Web World.   With the redo of AngularJS 1.x into Angular (the “official” name for AngularJS 2), it is time to compare and contrast Angular and ReactJS, another very popular JavaScript library.  We will take a look at an application developed using both Angular and React and talk through difference in coding philosophy between the two and ultimately, help you or your organization determine what makes sense. Spoiler, there are slides entitled feelings
