AngularJS continues to trend upward in the number of available jobs (which typically pay quite well) and the number of applications being built. So what is AngularJS and why is it so popular? And more importantly - why should take the time to learn it?
In a nutshell, AngularJS is a robust Single Page Application (SPA) framework that can be used to build dynamic, client-centric applications that can run in desktop browsers as well as on phones and tablets. You can use AngularJS to build multi-screen applications that perform much like a desktop application but can be viewed and interacted with using a normal browser.
In this course by development expert Dan Wahlin you'll learn essential concepts that you need to know to get started building AngularJS applications such as controllers, scope, views, routes, factories, services and more. The course provides step-by-step walk-throughs and coding demos that you're encouraged to code along with to enhance the learning process. By the end of the course you'll understand how all of the AngularJS pieces fit together and be able to apply this knowledge to building your own custom Web applications.
The AngularJS JumpStart course is broken down into 6 modules with each module providing source code so that you can follow along with Dan.
By the end of the course you'll have walked through of all of the key components in AngularJS and built a working Single Page Application. If you're looking to "jumpstart" your AngularJS knowledge look no further than this course. It's a great technology to know and add to your resume!

What's a Single Page Application (SPA) and what features does AngularJS provide to help you build SPAs? This module will explore SPA concepts and key AngularJS features, provide a Hello World sample to get you started using it quickly, and explore key components of the framework and how they work together. You'll also learn how to navigate the AngularJS documentation to find additional details about the framework.
In this module you'll learn the difference between control-oriented and data-oriented programming and see how AngularJS data-binding functionality will save you time and allow you to focus on your application's data. You'll also learn about the role of views and directives and see several directives in action. Finally, you'll learn about filters and how they can be used to filter, format, and sort data in AngularJS SPA applications.
Controllers play a critical role in the AngularJS framework. In this module you'll learn the role that controllers play, how they can be created, and how scope fits into the picture for binding data to views using a data-oriented approach. You'll also learn how to create an AngularJS module and how to add controllers into it.
Once you understand how to create controllers and views you need to know how to integrate routing into your Single Page Application. In this module you'll learn how to do that using the $routeProvider and see how to define routes, create route parameters, and access route parameter values. You'll also learn about the role that the ng-view directive plays in AngularJS.
Factories and services can be used to encapsulate re-useable code so it can be shared across application components such as controllers and even other factories or services. In this module you'll learn about the role of factories and services, see how they can be created and added into a module, and learn the difference between the two. You'll also learn about built-in AngularJS services such as $http and see how it can be used to make Ajax calls to a back-end Node.js RESTful service.
Learn how to enhance the user interface with Bootstrap CSS classes and AngularJS animations to add a professional look and feel. Different options for defining animations will be discussed including CSS transitions and animations with a focus on transitions in the code.
The entire course was laid out in easy to understand and comprehend lectures with relevant quizzes to test knowledge learned at the end of each section.
Dan is one of the best instructors I have found online. I've been with Treehouse, Codeschool, Thinkful and others. He simplifies the learning of Angular because he starts by giving you an understanding of the structure of Angular....how it fits together. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that this is essential when starting out. His use of diagrams and images to do this just furthers your understanding. Topics are introduced slowly and built upon and are never confusing. Some courses that take this approach never get to the meat of the thing you're trying to learn. Not so in Dans case. You'll have a great foundation to go off of. Couldn't recommend this course enough. I hope Dan continues to contribute to the learning environment in other languages...he has a gift for it.
This is a great course. I have a background in technology but most of the content was completely new to me - not a problem though as Dan is easy to listen to, takes his time and gives clear explanations. Thanks!
Easily the best AngularJS course on Udemy. Period. Don't bother with the rest. If you want to learn Angular properly, get an understanding of its concepts and structure, this video will show you how.
The course is very well prepared. It is kept up to date with current version of the framework. Dan answers all questions on daily basis, so if you get stuck somewhere you can always count on him and get help. CRUD and testing are not included in the course which Is a shame.
