Learn TypeScript for Angular Development [Video]

More Information
  • Move from loose types to predictable strict types
  • Write self-documented API methods and data structures
  • Understand custom generic types for complex data structures
  • Implement a contract with interfaces
  • Enhance Dependency Injection in Angular via class constructors
  • Explore TypeScript advanced types
  • Build interactive web apps with Angular and TypeScript

TypeScript 2.x adds optional static types, classes, and modules to JavaScript, giving you great tools and enabling you to structure of large JavaScript applications better. In this course, we’ll teach you how to leverage the exciting features of TypeScript while working on Angular projects to build scalable, data-intensive web applications.

We’ll begin with an introduction to TypeScript and Angular framework, where you will install the TypeScript compiler and learn the most important secrets of the TypeScript language such as types, functions, classes, interfaces and start working in the Angular environment. The next section describes the introduction to components in the Angular framework using TypeScript. Using Angular CLI, you will create your first component, learn how to compose components, learn lifecycle methods in Angular, and respond to the user actions with events. The third section describes the services in the Angular framework, where you will learn about dependency injection and services in the Angular framework, create your first service, which will inject into the component and for service.

The next section describes modules, directives, pipes and two-way data binding, where you will learn about modules in the Angular framework, find out what directives are and how to use them, create your own custom directive, add an external directive, transform data with pipes, and create two-way data binding in two ways. In the next section, you will learn how to create a reactive form, handle the form and validate the data. The sixth section describes the routing strategies, where you will create an example routing configuration, add links thanks to which it will be possible to navigate without reloading the page, handle routing.

The last section is an introduction to testing and debugging, where you will learn about the tests, the types of tests, learn how to debug code using Chrome dev tools, and create component tests.

Bartlomiej Potaczek

Bartlomiej Potaczek is a software engineer who works for Schibsted Tech Polska and programs mostly in JavaScript. He is a big fan of everything related to the React world, functional programming, and data visualization.

He founded and created a portal that allows users to learn programming in a pair-programming fashion called InitLearn. InitLearn help users find an appropriate teacher that will devote all of their time especially to their student. Lessons are conducted in a pair-programming fashion, using tools that allow them to teach and learn programming in a collaborative way (such as Screenhero). He was involved in building the frontend of InitLearn, which is built on React-Redux technologies.

Besides programming, he practices football and CrossFit. Currently, he is working on rewriting the frontend for tv.nu, the most complete Swedish TV guide for over 200 channels. He has also recently worked on technologies such as React, React Router, and Redux.
