Angular, Unit Testing, and Figma
What you'll learn
- Using Figma as a supporter to Angular, CSS code generator
- Basic unit testing in Angular apps
- Building a basic app in Angular
- Angular Material
- We are going to cover all that is needed, programming skills may be of support
“Every web developer relies heavily on one web framework or another
(sometimes more if their services have different requirements) and
companies will rely on many frameworks, but each has its own pros and
cons.” Jay Bell, Greg Magolan, David Guijarro, Adrien de Peretti, Patrick Housley talking about NestJS
You may want to see the article "Computer programmers behave like drug addicted" Jorge Guerra Pires, PhD Published in Geek Culture, regarding bad reviews here.
Angular is a Google framework: it is a Single Application Page (SPA) generator.
With Angular, you can build apps that runs on browsers (frontend), no need of backend frameworks/libraries such as Express/Node.js/NestJS. With current achievements by the Angular community, you can now do essentially anything on the frontend. Recently, Firebase, also from Google, was integrated into Angular: Firebase provides several nice features, e.g., machine learning and Google based login.
Some strong points of Angular:
1. Was designed to be tested (i.e., ideal for unit testing-based apps; e.g., Test Driven Development), the Angular creators created standard tests, and constantly release new ways of easily testing apps using their libraries. With Jasmine/Karma, you can do essentially all kinds of unit tests;
2. It goes well with other technologies also from Google, see my articles on Medium "Firebase and Angular: connect your frontend app to a noSQL database" and "Meet my project “TensorFlow.js in Angular”: working on Angular based machine learning apps";
See my article on Medium "Does Angular really suck: why I have to disagree!".
This is a several volumes course. On this volume, you shall learn how to build a simple dashboard, to be continued in future volumes: we are going to cover the logged-out user version. The full app is already available on GitHub, under MIT license. As a result, this course can be followed by anyone wanting to learn Angular.
This volume is quite generic, and can be followed by anyone wanting to learn Angular focused on unit testing with Jasmine/Karma.
We are going to build a page on this volume, with a footer and header, with a background. The header has an Angular Material menu. We used Figma to draw the page before it was built, and borrowed CSS codes from the Figma project.
Even though the app we built here is simple, we cover several topics:
1. Unit testing Angular components;
2. Creating Angular components;
3. Using Angular Material;
4. Using Figma alongside Angular, not just as a visual aid, but also as a CSS code provider;
Resource that comes alongside the course:
· GitHub repository with all codes divided by modules;
· GitBook with extra explanations;
· Newsletter from time to time, delivered to your e-mail box;
· Q&A section, inside the platform;
· Constant upgrades on the course, no need to buy again!
· And more, check it out!
See that the full app is already available, including the numerical part, and you can after completing the course, just go on studying the codes already on GitHub. I have published a NPM library for this app called ngx-mat-miyagi-dolab. Just give it a try: npm i ngx-mat-miyagi-dolab
Join me on this endeavor!
Good studies! Learning is a journey that starts with wanting to learn!
About my past experience and expertise
I have done a postdoc where I have developed a platform in Angular from scratch, alone as programmer, on the Angular part. See “Galaxy and MEAN Stack to Create a User-Friendly Workflow for the Rational Optimization of Cancer Chemotherapy, published in Frontiers in Genetics”.
I have a project called IdeaCoding Lab, and write to Medium on Angular.
Feel free to Google me!
Who this course is for:
- Programmers wanting to learn Angular, for building frontend
- Researchers waiting to build apps for their scientific computation
- Angular programmers wanting to learn Figma
- Angular programmers new to unit testing
I have been working with computer programming and mathematical modeling applied to biological systems since my bachelor of Engineering.
Currently, I am an Independent Researcher and Member of the Center of Excellence for Research DEWS (University of L'Aquila, DISIM, Italy)
Short-bio (EN): B.Eng by Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto (Brazil) in Production Engineering; double master degree by University of L'Aquila and Gdansk University of Technology: PhD on a collaboration between the Brazilian programme Science without Borders in biomathematics at the University of L'Aquila/IASI-CNR/BioMathLab. Master of science and PhD degrees recognized in Brazil by University of São Paulo (USP) as bioinformatics. Postdoc by Federal University of Bahia and Fiocruz.

IdeaCodingLab: Transforme sua ideia em linhas de códigos.
“Ideas require special handling from the time they are born until they're transformed into practical ways for doing things better.” David J. Schwartz
"Deixe o teu legado porque
O que ainda não existe aguarda o primeiro passo,
pra ser real" Scarcéus
Nosso objetivo é te oferecer cursos que te ajude a colocar sua ideia em forma concreta, ou mesmo, se julgar necessário, também assistência e consultoria.
Criei esse projeto durante meu segundo postdoc, pela Fiocruz. Queria documentar algumas coisas que estava aprendendo, em forma de tutoriais. Contudo, notei que já existem muitos tutoriais em português. Minha tese inicial era que não existiam, mas existem. Sendo assim, decidi abrir, e criar o IdeaCodingLab. Estou procurando lançar cursos que possam adicionar de alguma forma à essa rica literatura já disponível na literatura portuguesa.
Unique Selling Proposition (USP): oferecer aos alunos(as) as ferramentas necessárias para colocarem em forma de códigos suas ideias, suas inovações.
Segundo Bill Gross em “The single biggest reason why start-ups succeed”,
"Ideia é o terceiro fator mais importante no sucesso de uma startup". Ainda mais, startup e aplicações web viraram meio que sinônimo.

Biomathematics is the scientific process by which we try to understand the living systems from a mathematical perspective, the equivalent in physics is called mathematical physics, in engineering mathematical engineering, in computer science computational mathematics, and so on. As you can easily infer, mathematics is key in several areas.
In biology and medicine it has been postponed, delayed due to several issues, such as the recognition of biology as an independent area, the elimination of the vitalism and similar areas from the scientific community.
On this channel, you shall have contact with several streams of biomathematics, from a educative standpoint. The idea is that you should learn from each video.
