I’m totally psyched to try to learn Angular. So far I’m in the early stages and I decided I’d keep an informal journal so it might help others like me.
So Many Tutorials to Choose From
There are many great courses and tutorials to choose from–literally too many to choose from. If anybody reads this please add your recommendations in the comments. (Note: I’m not affiliated with any of the links I provide.)
So far I’ve researched the tutorials, training programs and books available. Angular Boot Camp looks awesome, but I don’t have the time, money or skills for this yet. Maybe some day. For now, I’m leaning towards self-paced online training. My go-to for that has always been Lynda.com. Lucky for me there is a really great series by one of my favorite authors, Ray Villalobos. You should definitely check it out. I’m a super huge fan of Lynda.com. I highly recommend it.
I’m also planning to take the course offered by WatchAndCode. I chose this course because it looks like the instructor is really dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable and the project app is interesting.
After some research I decided to focus on Angular 1 and grow into Angular 2 after it is released.
Another one of my all-time favorite training sites is Laracasts.com, which focuses on Laravel, but has a lot of other topics about general web development and programming principles. It’s very affordable and there are many free samples. It also has a lot of very useful information in the comments.
If you’re also learning Angular, good luck!
