Cutting Angular's Crosscuts

Cutting Angular's Crosscuts

No matter how DRY our code gets, there are times when the object-oriented paradigm is just not powerful enough to handle all code duplications. Applying logging and authorisation, for example, makes us copy and paste snippets all around our code-base without being able to isolate them in separate modules. This makes our code more coupled; less reusable and maintainable.

The aspect-oriented programming comes with a solution for such “cross-cutting concerns”. It is already widely used in the Java world, in AspectJ and Spring. In my talk I will bring the aspect-oriented programming paradigm to Angular. I’ll explain how to deal with duplications and make our code more maintainable using AOP with the new ECMAScript 2016 decorators’ syntax.
