AngularJS simple add, delete HTML example

If you are just getting starting with AngularJS, then you may find a humongous amount of tutorial and articles on the internet which can help you get confused and lost pretty quickly.

If you know HTML and JavaScript/Jquery and just quickly want to see how AngularJS would change your regular HTML vs JavaScript interaction, then perhaps this quick article may help you. In this demo, I will not be using any server side stuff. No ASP.NET, no PHP. It will be a plain old HTML page, and a small bit of JavaScript.

As of writing, it is based on AngularJS 1.5.8.

In this demo, I will provide user the ability to provide his first name, last name and gender. This information will get added to a table and will be dynamically updated when new row is added. The user will also be able to select one or more rows, and delete them.

All this will happen on the client side, with no postback happening. Additionally, to keep things simple I am not adding ayn session management or database part so nothing will persist if you re-open the page.
