    When you've been programming and consulting for many years, or when you're just starting out in the real world, you will quickly find that programming can be agonizing; fixing other people's horribly written code, enduring bug-swamped programming/scripting languages such as Angular and Javascript that drive you mad, interdisciplinary communication problems during meetings, friend politics, scope restrictions, time constraints,..

    Real world developers out there, you know what I mean!

    Here are two videos to illustrate this frustration, if anyone's curious:

    This is exactly the reason why I don't want to get a job in this.

    Aww its not that bad ok granted the ng-options is rediculous and the filter named filter wasn't the best idea :P

    I've never needed providers and think of services as constructor functions, tbh just use a factory. The fact they use the word service to refer to both services and factorys it pretty mad nevermind their services arn't what we as devs conventionally think of as services! we immediatly think 'web service' whilst the Angular service is probably more similar to 'services' as defined by Domain Driven Design or perhaps even models.

    Anyway WebApps is the future embrace it ok maybe it is that bad.

    What about the scope interdependency bug? Those are for sure hair-pullers.

    I've used all of Angular 1 and I'm quite annoyed with it. Arbitrarily re-defining standards is annoying to say the least.

    I won't embrace the future. I'm an anti-future person. I'm an old school coder who prefers to write coherent, clean code rather than to implement the latest, bug-ridden flashy library hype.

    IMO AngularJs is good for JS enabling much easier development of web apps but the real problem is javascript itself is just objectively bad and not conducive to clean code.

    It's not easier development per sé, it's making it more cumbersome than it already is, not to mention that AngularJS hides actual JS errors that are critical for debugging, unless you really dig deep into the JS engine, which isn't neither practical nor efficient.

    In a way you are right, it's yet another one of those hype languages trying to make it easier for the new devs on the block.
