A primary concern with modern day applications is that they need to be dynamic, and for that, data access from the server side, data authentication, and security are very important. Angular leverages its services to create such state-of-the-art dynamic applications.

This book will help you create and design customized services, integrate them into your applications, import third-party plugins, and make your apps perform better and faster. This book starts with a basic rundown on how you can create your own Angular development environment compatible with v2 and v4. You will then use Bootstrap and Angular UI components to create pages. You will also understand how to use controllers to collect data and populate them into NG UIs.

Later, you will then create a rating service to evaluate entries and assign a score to them. Next, you will create "cron jobs" in NG. We will then create a crawler service to find all relevant resources regarding a selected headline and generate reports on it. Finally, you will create a service to manage accuracy and provide feedback about troubled areas in the app created.

This book is up to date for the 2.4 release and is compatible with the 4.0 release as well, and it does not have any code based on the beta or release candidates.

  • Leverage the latest Angular and ES2016 features to create services
  • Integrate third-party libraries effectively and extend your app’s functionalities
  • Implement a real-world case study from scratch and level up your Angular skills

Sohail Salehi

Sohail Salehi is a veteran developer who recently decided to become a data scientist. He believes when you look at a programming challenge from a data scientist perspective, things started to change slightly and what used to be the ultimate solution, somehow morphs into a stepping stone for what really matters--data.

He won't lay down some tests and codes as soon as a programming challenge is handed to him, rather he has started to think WHY do we need to gather data, WHAT potential value is hidden inside this data and HOW to convert this potential into value that will make business thrive.

Although he has written a couple of other programming books before, The Sherlock Project is his first attempt to look at the programming challenge from a different perspective. This story is about discovering hidden values inside data and it is the project that he discusses in this book, Angular Services. In the past decade, he worked on some interesting projects with teams of bright developers. But challenges such as handling the traffic for a national newspaper website (NZ Herald) or creating a new game for Lotto (Lotto - 2nd Chance) are not attractive to him anymore. After he got his first certificate in Machine Learning from University of Washington, he decided to combine his development skills with new concepts that he is discovering in his new professional life and provide creative solutions for daily data-related challenges.

Technical concepts are not his only passion. He is an avid traveler and an adventurous surfer. Currently he lives in Bali, where the big waves are roaring most of the year, and he benefits from the rich Balinese culture and stunning tropical nature, which brings out the best of himself.
