    00:01 Angular 1.3 does a couple of interesting things to forms. The first, a form has a submitted state. If we see down here, myForm.$submitted is false. In our markup, we have myForm, which is bound to that name on the scope and $submitted. This $submitted is new.

    00:20 If I go up here, say, "Hello," and then submit, you can see now that this submitted is now true. One other thing that I think is key is now this name property is interpolatable. It can be interpolated. It's passed through the parser before myField is attached to the myForm on the scope.

    00:44 We can say, "fieldName." Actually, let's put that on the view model. Good practice there. viewModel.fieldName equals myField. Now, everything works great. These are welcome changes to forms.
