In this first part of the book we summarize the web's foundations and show how to build a front-end web application using AngularJS and the cloud storage service Parse.com. It shows how to build such an app with minimal effort. A front-end web app can be provided by any web server, but it is executed on the user's computer device (smartphone, tablet or notebook), and not on the remote web server.
The minimal version of an AngularJS front-end data management application discussed in this tutorial only includes a minimum of the overall functionality required for a complete app. It takes care of only one object type ("books") and supports the four standard data management operations (Create/Retrieve/Update/Delete), but it needs to be enhanced by styling the user interface with CSS rules, and by adding further important parts of the app's overall functionality.
