Angular Developer Training - Introduction

Course Description

This course is a comprehensive introduction to the Angular framework (Angular 2, Angular 4, Angular 5 and Angular 6). It covers both the ES6 JavaScript syntax and Typescript needed to work with Angular. It gives practical examples of the main Angular concepts including Components, Directives, Dependency Injection, Pipes and Single Page Applications (SPA). Angular is a large framework and it can be intimidating to get started with because it uses both a new language, Typescript, and has a large range of concepts that need to be understood before you can get started. This course is the perfect introduction for people who have worked with web applications who are embarking on a project that requires Angular.
