Angular Fundamentals | 31 Jan - 2 Feb | Online

Angular Fundamentals: Course Overview

Angular is a web app development platform with a mature development history. It offers a component-driven approach to UI development, performance that improves with each release, a mobile-oriented outlook and static type checking with Typescript.

The course takes you through the fundamentals of Angular, focusing on concepts while bringing them down to earth with many practical lab exercises and demos.

Angular Version

The latest release version of Angular is taught. As of November 2021, this is Angular 12.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course you will:

  • Have gained a conceptual understanding of Angular and how to structure an app
  • Understand what Typescript brings and how to integrate it into your build process
  • Understand Angular’s component-based development approach and how to use it to think differently about building apps
  • Have built some Angular apps

Duration

This course will be delivered in 3 days.


Teaching Approach

This course is hands-on and interactive. Each module will first introduce concepts with a talk and demonstrations. Then we will have exercises to ground those concepts in practical work. I will keep an eye on how everyone is doing, and I will look at your code so you can get some feedback. Ask questions at any time.


Who should attend this course

Attend this course if you:

  • have front-end development experience and need to understand Angular;
  • are transitioning from another platform or language (eg server-side Java, or jQuery) to front-end development with Angular;
  • are a QA or tester who needs to understand front-end development with Angular;
  • are new to front-end development;
  • need to understand the technology for a role such as build management and CI/CD, or UX.

Prerequisites

Attendees need to be familiar with programming in languages such as Java, Python, C# or JavaScript. No prior Angular experience is needed, and we will cover the fundamentals of TypeScript.
