More Information
  • Build a weather web app using a component-based architecture, with focus on modularity and testability
  • Develop a Twitter application by learning to handle complex APIs, filtering data using pipes, and integrating external components
  • Compose Angular components into a full-functioning multiplayer checkers game
  • Write a web server that pre-renders Angular apps for performance and SEO
  • Test Angular components and account for external API calls by mocking
  • Deploy an app to an AWS instance

AngularJS is a JavaScript framework used to build web applications in large-scale, high-traffic websites that struggle with under-performance, portability issues, and complexity at scale. Angular changes that, and with Angular 2, the web application building process is made easier and more efficient.

This video starts out by addressing some of the advantages that Angular 2 applications have over traditional page-based web apps. You'll build a simple weather application where you'll learn the basic concepts of Angular 2 such as writing basic components, making API calls, and routing. Next you'll build a more complex Twitter app, which will be based on the knowledge you gained while building the weather application. It will show you how to handle more complex API calling scenarios, filter data using pipes, and integrate external components into the application. Lastly, you'll build a multiplayer checkers app that will make extensive use of data binding in order to provide a responsive user interface.

You'll then learn how to test the applications built in the course, and finally we’ll conclude by providing a brief example on how to deploy an Angular 2 app to AWS.

Style and Approach

This step-by-step practical video tutorial will show you how to code an Angular application and deploy an app to an AWS instance.

  • Create your own custom applications based on intelligently designed, readable code templates
  • Address critical flaws in many single page application frameworks with server-side rendering
  • Maintain modular applications using Angular's dependency injection framework and avoid writing repetitive boilerplate code
