What will the course cover?

AngularJS is a complete JavaScript-based front-end web framework for developing single page web applications. It was originally developed by Google. The AngularJS framework works by first reading the HTML page, which has embedded into it additional custom tag attributes. Angular interprets those attributes as directives to bind input or output parts of the page to a model that is represented by standard JavaScript variables.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who is interested in designing or maintaining a website for personal or professional use. This course builds on our Web Design HTML/CSS and JavaScript courses to extend your knowledge full stack web development skills.

What skills, knowledge or experience do I need to start this course?

You should have reasonable experience in using Microsoft Windows or an Apple Macintosh computer, with the ability to perform simple tasks such as using a word processing program and using the internet to view web pages and send emails. Prior knowledge of web design or HTML & CSS and JavaScript is necessary. You should have a good understanding of English and simple maths and be able to think logically.

What should I be able to do by the end of the course?

Convert and extend an existing HTML-based website to use the AngularJS framework. You will learn how to implement directives to exchange data with the underlying application and display it in the browser window.

What extra study or practice is expected outside of the class?

To gain the maximum benefit, you should read recommended books and websites, and practice the topics covered during the class each week – the more you practice, the faster your skills will improve.
