Start Course

Hello! My name is Scott Allen, and welcome to AngularJS: Get Started. In this course, you will learn about the core features of the JavaScript framework using practical, easy to follow examples. You will get there by learning major topics like how two-way data binding makes it easy to build pages and forms while maintaining simplicity in the JavaScript code, and come to understand the essential abstractions of AngularJS, including modules, controllers, directives, and services. By the end of this course, you will be able to start building your own single page application using AngularJS. Before you begin, make sure you are already familiar with the basics of JavaScript and HTML. Optional And after this course, you’ll be ready to move on to deeper Angular topics like Angular components, routing, and forms. I hope you’ll join me, and I look forward to helping you on your learning journey here at Pluralsight.

Start Course

Services are a major piece of every AngularJS application and will likely make up the majority of the code you write in your own apps. Creating your own services requires understanding the different types of services and how and why to use each of them. The framework also provides lots of built-in services that can help you manage network requests, asynchronous execution, routing, and much more. Taking full advantage of that functionality requires a deep understanding of what is possible and how to use it to fit your particular situation. This course will teach you all of these things so you can build great applications with Google's popular framework.

Once you learn the basics of AngularJS, you encounter decisions that not only affect how well your app will scale and perform, but also how easily it can be maintained. This course takes AngularJS developers beyond the fundamentals to address that next level of problems you encounter. You'll see familiar patterns such as Separation of Concerns (SoC) are at the heart of building solid AngularJS applications. You'll learn techniques to organize code and the right questions to ask yourself that can shape your application patterns. Other topics include: how to extend application design from small, to medium, to large scale apps with many modules, naming conventions, controller techniques, reusable services, creating reusable building blocks, dependency injection, and build automation. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of how to write clean code with AngularJS to create greater implicit readability, make it easier to maintain, and extendable.
