Angular and TypeScript Single Page Application (SPA) Development

Instructor: Dan Wahlin

Course Length: 4 Days

Course Description

Angular is the new version of Google’s popular Single Page Application (SPA) framework that can be used to build robust, client-centric applications. With enhanced speed, the ability to leverage the latest language features and a more modular architecture, Angular offers a cutting-edge approach to building today’s applications.

“Learn by doing!” – that’s the goal of the Angular Application Development course. The course starts with an introduction to Single Page Applications (SPA) and the benefits that SPAs can provide to both developers and end users. It then jumps into an overview of key Angular features and ES2015/TypeScript. Students will learn what benefits ES2015 and TypeScript offer and get hands-on experience using them throughout the class. From there students learn about different aspects of the Angular framework such as components, modules, templates, data binding syntax, directives, data services, calling RESTful services, observables, decorators, routing and more. Best practices and techniques for structuring code are discussed as well as techniques for using the documentation and Angular Github source code repository to find answers to questions.

This course is taught by Google Developer Expert (GDE) Dan Wahlin.

Note: This course covers the latest version of Angular. It doesn't cover the AngularJS 1.x version of the framework. We offer a separate AngularJS course as well.


Attendees must have prior experience working with JavaScript, HTML and CSS to take this class. A minimum of 6-months of hands-on JavaScript (ES5 and ES2015) experience is recommended to get the most out of the course.

Experience working with TypeScript is also highly recommended since TypeScript and ES2015 will be used throughout the course.

For development teams that are new to ES2015 or TypeScript we offer a 1-day TypeScript workshop that can be run the same week as the Angular course. We highly recommend adding this day if your team doesn’t have any experience with ES2015 or TypeScript.


This course is designed for developers looking to build Single Page Applications using the latest version of the Angular framework and the TypeScript language.
