Angular has been under development by Google for nearly a full decade. It has one purpose: scale up to gracefully handle the largest and most complex web apps around. If you want to build a big app, Angular is the way to go. Every other course online around Angular shows you how to use the basic syntax and features of Angular, but only this course will show you how to build large, professional projects using Angular.
Mastering Angular by reading the documentation alone is challenging. The official documentation always offers multiple ways to achieve any simple task, but never clarifies what the best way to do something is. In this course, you will gain a fundamental understanding of the best way to achieve any goal with Angular, along with an explanation of the pros and cons of each possible approach.
Top companies are hungry for Angular developers. You've probably heard of the crazy salaries being offered for front-end developers. The average starting salary for an Angular developer is $115k USD. That is not an exaggeration, it is not a joke - this is how badly employers are looking for Angular developers. You can be the latest hire at a new tech startup, a fantastic engineer with amazing skills in Angular! All you have to do to earn this salary is understand Angular, and this course will help you do that.
Learning Angular will make you a better software engineer. Here's the little secret of Angular that nobody tells you about: Angular is really three different topics in one! You've got Angular itself, Typescript, and RxJs. Learning Angular isn't just about Angular, its about Typescript and RxJs as well! Typescript's goal is to help you catch errors quickly during development, rather than when you are running your app, while RxJs has a goal of helping you manage data transparently throughout your application. Understanding Typescript and RxJS will undoubtedly help you become a more knowledgeable, productive, and successful engineer. Note that you do not need any prior experience with Typescript or RxJs to take this course - I will teach you everything you need to know!
Planning on building your own apps? This course will give you a countless number of reusable code snippets that you can utilize on your own personal projects, saving you valuable time. Angular is all about code reusability, and this course will get you started on the right track. Not only will you get incredibly reusable code, but you'll also learn to integrate multiple different CSS frameworks with Angular, so you can get some custom styling that suits the needs of your app.
Learn from someone who has worked with Angular since its 1.0 release. I have worked with Angular since version 1.0, released many years ago. I've seen an incredible number of design patterns and approaches, and I've narrowed down that list to the critical topics that you need to understand. Rather than showing you every last tiny feature of Angular, you'll learn only the best way to achieve any given task.
But don't just take my word for it - check out the reviews for this course! You'll see that other engineers - just like yourself - have had great success and acquired a new understanding of how to build large web apps using Angular.
