Angular Stew, Season 1
"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time." NOTE: The start date is tentative. This virtual self-study group will begin once a Senior Percolator has been identified to lead the group. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator. Angular Stew, is a new virtual self-study group focused particularly on Angular, a TypeScript-based open-source front-end web application platform led by the Angular Team at Google. This inaugural season will provide training in the fundamentals of Angular 2.0. Since the book we were planning on using -- Angular 2: Novice to Ninja -- seems to have inexplicably vanished from the interweb, I decided to search for alternatives. It looks like Angular 2 is now passé and the current release is 5.2! (Have I been in hypersleep?) Here is one training option. I welcome anyone who has a basic understanding of the Angular world to reply with thoughts, comments and observations about how best to proceed with Angular Stew, Season 1. What resources should we consider to learn the latest version of Angular?

What we're about

Public Group

Boston PHP is the largest education-focused Meetup in New England with more than 3,700 members.

We are a lot more than PHP!

We have been meeting since 2002 ( and usually meet every month on a Wednesday. We have a wide range of full-stack development topics related to PHP.

All meetings are free, and we encourage everyone to participate and get involved and help grow the PHP community. After each meeting we typically go to a nearby restaurant/bar/pub for more informal discussion.

Our member engagement strategy offers services beyond monthly meetups. We focus on the continuing education of already well-educated adults.

For example, we have developed six virtual self-study groups that are run during the down time between bi-monthly in-person Meetups:

PHP Percolate
jQuery jAM
HTML5 Brunch
Drupal Diner
Git Lunch
Agile Appetizer
Angular Stew
AWS Snack

More than 230 members have completed at least one of these courses and are enshrined on our Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment (

In addition, more than 260 members receive job postings from other members via our Boston PHP Job Board (beta) (

We video all of our meetups. To access our videos, just follow this link (
