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.


  • Quick overview of what Angular has to offer, how it is different from Angular 1.x
  • A glance at the project we are going to build, and all the important files that angular-cli generates
  • Create our first component
  • Proceed with creating a component hierarchy to display all hard coded data

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.
