I’ve been playing around with AngularJS since March this year but only in my spare time. So I was thrilled to be able to use AngularJS on an actual real-world project at my day job at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam.

SimplePie is a nice PHP library but the version I used broke when my hosting provider decided to upgrade the servers to a new PHP version.
