Learning AngularJS 2

Lynda.com - Mon, 02/06/2017 - 19:00
The AngularJS 2 framework lets you get things done quickly by providing a model for development that yields special functionality. This course introduces you to AngularJS 2, the second edition of the "superheroic" JavaScript framework. Redesigned from the ground up by Google, AngularJS 2 provides advanced features for building single-page applications: declarative templates, two-way data binding, TypeScript support, and dependency injection. Angular JS 2 now offers components, instead of the controllers typical of MVC architecture. The update is suitable for mobile and web developers alike.

In this course, Ray Villalobos shows you how to start using AngularJS 2 in your own projects. He starts by defining what exactly Angular 2 is and how it differs from AngularJS 1. Then, once the basics are out of the way, he sets up the template that will drive the project and starts coding. Ray shows how to divide your project into modules, work with events, style content with CSS, and create components and subcomponents. Plus, you can find out how to change content dynamically using data pipes.

Note: Members can find a template to download in the exercise files.
