Going deep into Angular2+
I was able to further my AngularJS understanding and development with a public facing, child-oriented web application. It was fun, and energetic. No Database was used, but it was a nice project that had tons of interactions. Thanks to my colleague Christopher Strong, who exposed me to the entire AngularJS, NPM, and Gulp stack at the time. I then became engulfed in a production, consumer-facing, data-base driven AngularJS project at the FinTech startup. During this time, the Angular team has been eagerly fighting to maintain the top-dog Front-end status and has released Angular2, Angular4, and now Angular 5 in efforts to fight off some of the challengers and maintain Angular’s fanbase.
Being a junkie for dabbling, and trying new technologies I have invested in the Udemy Angular 5 course and will be building some type of prototype to understand the inner workings of the technology. I can say from my initial experiences that the component based development is pretty nice! Angular 5 set up was relatively seamless and it comes pre-built with Unit-Testing! I’ll be using Visual Studio Code as my IDE and keep a log of what I am learning and post at various benchmarks.
