In this session we will take a look at building applications with Angular. We will build a very simple application from the ground up, and attempt to understand the approach of Angular, as well as understand some of the terminology that Angular introduces.

This session will focus on the Angular 7

TypeScript, Components, Annotations/Directives, Observables, Reactive Stores, Model-Driven forms … Oh my! Angular, much like AngularJs (1.x.x), despite being a powerful platform for building rich client side applications, comes laden with both new terminology, and a “newer” approach to writing client side code.

In this session, as we build a simple application, we will attempt to tease apart these concepts, slowly building our understanding towards how these pieces come together, and how we can leverage them to build rich client side application.


  • Using in-build pipes in Angular
  • Create our own pipe
  • Create the necessary infrastructure to allow for HTTP Calls to the backend
  • Load all the containers using Ajax
  • Introduces routing, and update the homepage to navigate to these routes

Along the way we will see how to use the Angular style guide to follow conventions adopted by the Angular community at large, and some ways to use the angular-cli tool
