Angular is a full-featured and tenured client-side framework for creating robust web applications. With its original inception over a decade ago, the ecosystem and adoption is extensive, however you may not have journeyed down the Angular path to this point. With concepts rooted in MVC development, bridging the gap with similar experience will help you become accustomed to this familiar paradigm of code implementation and flow. We'll look at the basics of creating a project, building components for the view, routing for navigation, and services to interact with our server data, in just a short amount of time. The framework is flexible yet powerful and you'll see how easy it is to get started. In this session, learn why Angular is such a powerful framework to subsidize the existing landscape of your back-end services and code to create a rich, responsive front-end application.

You will learn:

  • The fundamentals of the Angular framework and why you would use it for modern web development, as well as how it fits in front of your existing back-end implementation
  • How to create and run an Angular application using the CLI (Command Line Interface)
  • The fundamentals of Angular applications by building components, views, and services
