Mastering Angular

Mastering Modern Web Development with Angular: Best Practices, Unit Testing, Forms, RXJS, NgRX, REST, Optimization & More



5 Days

Course Overview

Angular is one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks for creating web and native mobile applications by implementing several features and capabilities:

  • Single Page Applications (SPAs) load a single HTML page that is dynamically updated based on user interaction. SPAs can communicate with the server-side to load data into the application without a full-page refresh.
  • Two-way data binding means that when the data store updates, the UI is immediately updated (and vice versa).
  • Modules divide code into reusable parts with related components, directives, pipes, and services grouped together and can be combined with each other to create an application.
  • Angular uses a dependency injection design pattern for services, increasing code efficiency and modularity.
  • Thanks to Angular's Model-View-* architecture, enforcing the Single Responsibility Principle (SRP) and Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY) techniques, coding is reduced into the smallest pieces possible.
  • The declarative user interface means the presentational logic in HTML is separated from the imperative logic and Angular’s data binding.
  • Angular is also easily integrated into other frameworks, such as Ionic.

Mastering Angular is a five-day, hands-on course that thoroughly explores the latest Angular features and advances, demonstrating how to solve the traditional challenges of JavaScript web application development.  Throughout the course students will build custom components using application routes, form validation, and unit-testing. The course starts with an introduction of Angular CLI and TypeScript, and then delves into component-driven development with Angular components, covering data-binding, directives, services, routing, HTTP, the RxJS library, forms unit testing, and REST. Students will also learn how to add authentication, use the Material library, learn the NgRX design pattern to implement the NgRX store, make custom directives, enhance their application with animations, write an E2E test, and increase their application's efficiency by lazy loading modules and creating their own Angular library.

NOTE: This course is on Angular 9, but is available for prior or more recent versions. Please inquire for details.

Course Objectives

At the end of this five-day course, students will have an application up and running that incorporates components, directives, custom pipes, reactive forms, routes, services, unit testing, and the REST API. They will add authentication, implement the Material library, and learn how to maintain state with NgRX. They will then take a deeper dive including making their own custom directives, lazy loading modules, and E2E testing. They will learn how to enhance their application with animations and create their own Angular library. 

Working within in an engaging, hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn explore:

  • What Angular is and why should you use it
  • How Angular reduces the amount of code that you must write to add rich functionality to both existing and new web pages
  • What TypeScript is, why it is useful, and how to use it with Angular
  • How to facilitate development and deployment using Angular CLI
  • How to work with the various aspects of the Angular architecture to implement clean, responsive web interfaces
  • How Routers can support navigation within a Single Page Application
  • What the best practices are for using Angular so that it works unobtrusively and performs well
  • How to use Angular with HTTP to support JSON, REST, and other services
  • Working with the Ahead of Time compiler including its impact of developers and the development process
  • How to defend against DOM-based XSS
  • How to manage routing decisions based on pre-defined criteria such as a successful authentication
  • How to meet huge data requirements by processing asynchronous data streams with RxJS
  • Simplify server-side rendering
  • How to facilitate unit testing
  • Enhance an Angular user interface with animations and other advanced features
  • Optimize Angular applications with various tools and techniques
  • Maintain state within an Angular application
  • What Angular 9 (or later versions) brings to the table and its relationship to prior versions
