The evolution of technology is a fast-paced battle that is constantly being fought. For every ripple in the tech world, an equal ripple can be found among the tools that design that world. As the requirements of the world gets complex, simpler tools are required to cater to these complex apps.
Although originally, complex apps required hours and hours of coding and mastering every inch of a programming language, today this has become simpler and easier. Days of coding have been reduced drastically because of tools such as frameworks. These frameworks allow developers to use set layouts and modify them as per their requirement. This has put the power to design apps and websites in the hands of even a newbie programmer.
Angular 2 is one such framework that looks to simplify the process of developing apps and websites. It comes packed with essential features such as animations, mobile gestures, filtering, routing, security, data binding, internationalization, and simple UI components. Let’s look at Angular 2 further.
What is Angular 2?
Angular is not really an update or a newer version of Angular 1, rather it is more of a revamped version of the original Angular 2. From the basic syntax to even the language, everything is changed in Angular 2. The changes between the Angular 1 and 2 are so significant that you do not even need to learn Angular 1 to get started with Angular 2. However, the developers have transitioned many things from the first version.
Everything that Angular was applauded for such as speed, expressiveness, cross-platform capability, flexible nature, 2 way data binding, and dynamic templating are all things that remained in Angular 2, but was made better. Angular 2 was faster, more expressive, simpler to code in (especially for beginners), and included even more cross-platform capability with a major focus on mobile development. Let’s see how Angular 2 has changed from Angular 1 in depth.

Changes between Angular 1 and Angular 2
As previously mentioned, Angular 2 is a not exactly an upgrade, but rather can be considered as a complete rewrite. This means that Angular 2 comes with a lot of changes. Here are a few primary changes that can be seen in Angular 2.
Mobile Development – Developers have shifted focus from web development and instead this iteration focuses on development for mobiles. With the age of portable devices such as smartphones and tablets, this makes it a pretty smart move.
Modularity – a lot of the core functions in Angular 2 has been shifted to modules, which results in a lighter and faster core, making development easier and the performance faster.
Browser Compatibility – In this version, you don’t have to waste time focusing on browser compatibility, because it is compatible with all modern browsers.
Dependency Injection – Dependency injection has been improved with the introduction of binding, which allows the dependencies to be named.
Dynamic Loading – Dynamically loading the pages is now possible.
Diary Logging – The logging measures where time is spent to identify bottlenecks and helps you realize where you lost the most time during coding.
Tooling – Controllers and $scope functions are replaced with components and directives.
These are a few major changes that you can expect to see in Angular 2. These changes are expected to make coding easier and simpler.
What is in this course?
Now, we come to the part of where you can learn all of this and so much more. Well, look no further than this course. We, at Eduonix, have designed a course that can help you not only understand the fundamentals of Angular 2, but also understand how the changes in Angular 2 will reflect when it comes to coding.
The unique course format uses the learn while building approach, where in not only will you learn about the theory behind the framework, but also learn how to apply these theory concepts to practice. You will design ten different projects as a part of this course, which will cover basics as well as complex topics.
Ten Projects in this Course
Project 1 – Simple Angular Website – A simple “Hello World” type project, which will help you get a feel for the framework and understand how to use the basic components.
Project 2 – Contact Manager – This project is a CRUD application that will get you acquainted with features such as Services and how to work with JSON data. At the end of this project, you will have a CRUD application template that can be reused for your other projects.
Project 3 – Github Programmer Directory – This project will increase the level of complexity helping you learn how to incorporate external APIs. You will learn how to use the Github API to develop a programmer directory.
Project 4 – Chat Application – You will learn how to use web sockets and socket.io to create a chat application. You will build a real-time chat application that can commonly be found on many websites.
Project 5 – Spotify Music App – You will learn how to build a music app using the Spotify API, a fairly complex API. The app will also have the functionality of searching for artists and album.
Project 6 – Auth0 Authentication App – You will learn how to implement the Auth0 to build a login application, which will provide you with royalty free code for using in your own apps.
Project 7 – MEAN Todo App – You’ll dive into the MEAN stack and build an advanced ToDo app, bringing together the most popular web technologies used to design web apps.
Project 8 – Foursquare Finder – You will build a directory-based application using the Foursquare API. You will also learn how to extend this API for multiple apps.
Project 9 – Testimonial Share – You’ll learn how to build an application for sharing testimonials and also implement Firebase. You will also create your own API that you use for your other apps.
Project 10 – Google Maps App – You’ll learn how to incorporate Google Maps in Angular 2 in an Ionic Mobile application. This super app can be used across platforms and devices using a single code base.
Benefits of this Course
Now, that you know everything this course will entail, let’s understand how this course can help you. In addition to teaching you the complete ins and outs of Angular 2 framework, you will also learn how to actually use the theories and fundamentals to create 10 unique apps.
Also, you will have royalty free codes to develop apps that you can use for your own projects. Additionally, you would have also gained from the knowledge of the brightest in the fields and gain from his experience.
