PHP is the most widely-used web programming language in the world, and Angular is one of best-known JavaScript frameworks today. This course will teach you to create a Single-Page Application (SPA) with Angular and connect it to a PHP backend.

What you'll learn

Angular is probably the most widely used JavaScript framework today, and PHP is the most-used web programming language by a wide margin.

In this course, Building a Site with Angular and PHP, you'll learn to combine the powers of both technologies.

  • You start with an introduction to Angular, and then set up a PHP backend with a JSON interface and database storage.
  • Next, you'll explore TypeScript, a prerequisite for Angular
  • Finally, you'll dive right into the JavaScript framework and its concepts.
When you have finished this course, you'll not only have a good understanding of Angular and PHP, but you'll also have learned how to connect your app to a PHP backend.
