Angular 5 Development

This course takes a thorough look at Angular 5. The course covers the new features in Angular 5, as well as providing in-depth coverage of everything introduced in earlier versions. Where appropriate, we also highlight related concepts in AngularJS (version 1.x), to help AngularJS developers make the leap into the current Angular library.

  • Creating and testing Angular apps
  • Templates
  • Data binding and forms
  • Dependency injection
  • Pipes
  • Directives and transclusion
  • Routing and navigation
  • Calling REST services
  • Web sockets
  • Angular CLI
  • Angular Universal
  • Testing

Prerequisites:

  • Familiarity with HTML and JavaScript programming
  • Experience in AngularJS 1.x is beneficial but not required
