Building Better and more Intuitive Interfaces with the WordPress REST API and AngularJS

The WordPress REST API combined with a JavaScript MVC framework opens up new possibilities for better, more intuitive interfaces that solve scaling and other challenges. In this workshop we will use AngularJS, the best — because we said so — and the WordPress REST API  to create custom applications. First we will walk through creating custom API routes and endpoints to interact with your data, followed by two unique ways to use AngularJS to create better interfaces for your projects. This will include a decoupled front-end and single page web app as a plugin interface.
