I'm wondering what is the recommended way of making those small self-executing anonymous functions, minification safe.

Self-executing anonymous functions are safe to minify. Maybe you are referring to the functions you use to register controllers, services, directives, etc? Use a tool like ngAnnotate, would be my recommendation.

Hi Scott, Nicely done! Love your work. Now you just need to bring your formidable training skills to the Aurelia framework (it seems to be shaping up as a very nice (and simpler) Angular competitor). Nat

Great course Scott! I really liked it. One question: is it not better to store tokens in sessionStorage instead of localStorage? For minification purposes I use the following pattern: (function (module) { module.controller('MainCtrl', mainCtrl); mainCtrl.$inject = ['TitleProvider']; function mainCtrl(titleProvider) { var model = this; model.title = titleProvider.title; } }(angular.module('myApp')));

@Jay: Thanks! You can pick one or the other, localStorage is more persistent so you would expect the token to be on the hard drive somewhere, if that's a concern use localStorage, but in either case keys usually have much shorter expirations than cookies.

Thank you for the great course. Is it possible to restrict unauthorized users to the view (html) files? Is this related with IIS configuration? Because we don't want to allow anonymous users to see our template files.

@kubi: Yes, you could do this with IIS or OWIN middleware.
