I would discourage to make yourself 'look bigger, meaner or scarier than you actually are' lest you wish the resolve the first contact situation with minus 1 planet.

Comment Angular (Score 2) 104

Nope, not after AngularJs you don't. Not another framework needed. After huge loads of jquery before I ever knew what a client-side architecture was, and then knockout and backbone. I found my home with Angular. I know that will be developed and fine-grained further by both professionals AND the community.

And it already kicks ass. Pretty sweet...

I believe two things should be just as important as swimming lessons for kids: coding and judo. Judo because it challenges them physically, improves their confidence and helps them recognize conflicts. Coding because it helps their creativity and computer literacy. In a perfect world, everyone eventually learns how to automate their tasks (or at least to some degree). My two cents though.
