Course in Angular Web App Development

Course about development of modern web apps using Angular

This course is discarded

Angular has in relatively short time become the defacto industrial standard for designing modern Single-Page web Applications (SPA). SPA means the browser loads just one HTML file (/index.html), which in turn slurps HTML snippets, JS and CSS files. All logical web pages are rendered by JS functions, snippets and styles.

This course teaches you everything you need to know to quickly get going by designing modern web apps using Angular.

This course covers Angular version 6, which is the modern version of Angular based on TypeScript.

This is what you will learn
  • Generate Angular projects and artifacts using ng-cli
  • Design Angular components, with models and views
  • Using pipes to format data
  • Using ng directives to control DOM in HTML templates
  • Designing services to encapsulate business logic
  • Understand how to make back-end calls to REST-WS servers
  • Writing both unit and e2e tests
