Details

If you have ever wanted to code an application with Angular this is your chance. Join us for a fun-filled day of learning Angular in this hands-on workshop. You will go from 0 to 60 with your Angular knowledge and be able to create our own Angular applications by the end of this workshop. We will start with a new project and continue to build up the project until we have a full application at the end.

We will cover subjects, including:
• What is Angular and the different parts that make up Angular?
• Angular CLI Overview
• Angular project layout overview
• Creating common components like headers, footers, and menus
• Applying CSS to just a single component vs the whole site
• Creating new components (pages)
• Routing between components (pages)
• Calling an external http service
• Preparing your application for deployment
• Adding authorization checks to routes (if time permits)
• Testing overview (if time permits and our brains aren't already full with Angular knowledge)

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:
• Bring your laptop and charger (Wifi & power strips will be provided)
• Node LTS 6.x ( https://nodejs.org )
• Visual Studio Code ( https://code.visualstudio.com )
• Angular CLI (npm install -g @angular/cli)
• Create a new Angular project using the Angular CLI
• Open Command Prompt or Terminal
• Navigate to c:\ on Windows and ~/ on Osx
• Run: mkdir projects
• T Run: cd projects
• Run: ng new ng2ws --style scss --routing
• Run: ng serve
• If there we no errors with ng serve, then open browser and navigate to http://localhost:4200. You should see the default web page for your Angular application. If you run into an error with ng serve, please let us know.

PREREQUISITES:
Html and CSS. Understanding of how events like click work in Html/JavaScript. TypeScript is helpful but we will cover the needed knowledge if you do not have any TypeScript experience.
