So far, this blog series has provided an introduction to AngularJS and why it's a good investment as well as detailing why developers like it. So, now let’s talk about why one may want to use it for new projects.
A Large Developer Talent Pool
Easier Onboarding for New Developers
Angular's modular component structure and commonly shared set of assumptions means that your project comes with an easily understandable, clearly defined scaffolding straight out of the gate. New team members will have no trouble instantly grasping this intuitively and starting to productively contribute. The days of month-long hand-holding sessions just to get up to speed will be in your past.
Improved Code Reusability
No developer worth their salt relishes re-inventing the wheel across projects. Using AngularJS encourages your team not to waste time repeating themselves. Instead, they'll naturally lean towards developing tight, reusable components that are easier to troubleshoot and can be re-used down the line to increase velocity on future projects.
Mature Testing Environment
That's just four of the obvious benefits AngularJS can potentially bring to your project. You'll discover plenty more as you take it for a spin Let's finish with a quick word on a classic real-life use case where Angular might be a good fit.
It's not necessarily perfect for every project, but if you're tasked with building a single-page application that relies on delivering value through a heavily responsive interface, Angular JS is going to save you an awful lot of heartache. Begin by letting some of your team experiment with it for prototyping on larger projects and you'll be able to safely see if it might work for you.
