New York, NY, United States, 2015/07/15 - Daniel Zen, founder and CEO of zen.digital in New York, will speak at the United Nations on July 17 on "Material Design in Practice with AngularJS" - ZenDigital.com.
Daniel is one of the foremost experts on AngularJS, the most modern and widely used framework for developing websites, web applications, mobile apps, art installations, and other digital projects.
Material Design is Google’s specification for a unified system of visual, motion, and interaction design that adapts across different devices. Available for both the web and mobile devices, it is the basis for the design of the upcoming Android L operating system. Attendees will learn how to put Material Design’s principles and goals into practice with Angular Material, the AngularJS implementation. Daniel also will explain how easy it can be to create a beautiful user experience (UX) for your application using the Material metaphor.
A colleague of the creators of AngularJS while at Google, Daniel was among the earliest developers to work with the AngularJS framework and contributed to its documentation. He immediately recognized its power, particularly the ability to achieve rich functionality with few lines of code.
“AngularJS gives web developers the ability to make richer, more complex applications with ease,” said Daniel, adding,"It should be one of the tools in any front-end developer’s toolbelt.”
