If you want to learn how to think and solve problems like an Angular expert, this course is for you. Play by Play is a series where we sit down with an expert to work on a solution in real time, unscripted and unrehearsed. This course, Play by Play: Angular with Typescript with John Papa and Christopher Martin, shows master Node and JavaScript developer Chris Martin sitting down with John Papa as they walk through converting an Angular application written in ECMAScript 5 to TypeScript. Chris will set up TypeScript tooling and learn as he explores the benefits of migrating from JavaScript to TypeScript, including Static Type-checking, better tooling, and the ability to detect and fix issues early. Through this course, you'll see the various ways of working with Angular concepts in TypeScript, including modules, services, controllers, and directives, as well as helpful tools TypeScript provides for writing better code and detecting errors. You'll learn the pros and cons of using TypeScript functions and classes for writing your Angular code. Please join us on this journey through building an Angular 1 Web application with TypeScript. By the time you're done, you'll not only understand a lot more about Angular with Typescript, but you'll also know how to problem-solve like a pro.
