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)

• Bring your laptop and charger (Wifi & power strips will be provided)
• Node LTS 6.x ( )
• Visual Studio Code ( )
• 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.

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.
