Lightning component - An overview

After spring 15 release salesforce made so many changes to its new javascript component framework lightning component . It has a rich, elegant event driven architecture that appeals to JavaScript developers and all of the power of the Force.com platform. Unlike other component frameworks where you typically have to design your own backend functionality, authentication and connectivity, with Lightning you simply expose server-side Apex functionality with a single annotation (@AuraEnabled) and then tell the component to utilize it. That’s all you have to do!!!
