Learn Angular 12 and build responsive, enterprise-strength applications that run smoothly on desktop and mobile devices with this Angular training course. Angular provides a robust framework that facilitates the development of richly interactive applications running on multiple platforms. Gain experience building components, creating directives, modularising applications, and building template-driven forms. 

You'll be given remote access to a preconfigured virtual machine for you to redo your hands-on exercises, develop/test new code, and experiment with the same software used in your course. This course is compatible with older versions of Angular.

Angular Training Course FAQs

Angular is an enterprise-strength tool for efficiently building browser and mobile-based user-interfaces.

Yes! While this course covers Angular 14, the material is still relevant for older versions. There are some minor areas where functionality has changed, and your instructor can identify these for you during the course.

Angular is a complete redesign of AngularJS. It builds on the lessons learned during the life of AngularJS. Specifically, Angular is component-oriented, while AngularJS is directive based. AngularJS was MVC-based, while Angular uses data-bound components. Angular is designed to support mobile devices AngularJS was not.
