- [Voiceover] Now we move on the final video…of our course where we're going to see…where to find help and support for Angular 2.…In this video we're going to see where to find…useful resources to learn more about Angular 2,…where to find help and support when needed…and give you a comprehensive list of useful links.…Let's start with some resources…to get more familiar with Angular 2.…I listed all of the links here,…but I'll actually show you how to navigate to those pages…from the Angular.io website.…
Let's open the Angular.io website.…When we click on the "Docs" section,…we get to that webpage where a lot…of useful information can be found.…Let's scroll down the menu on the left side of the screen…and click on "Angular 1 to Angular 2 Quick Ref."…This webpage gives us a side-by-side comparison…between Angular 1 and Angular 2,…which is great to learn the differences…between the two frameworks.…For instance, if you scroll down a little bit…we can see that "ng-repeat" is now "ngFor"…as we've seen in Section Four of this course.…
Angular 2 is a technical and conceptual overhaul of its hugely popular predecessor, AngularJS. To stay ahead, developers who have built and maintained projects with AngularJS need to be able to transition them to Angular 2. Migrating to Angular 2 demonstrates how to create and execute an effective migration plan for Angular applications. It opens with an introduction to the major changes and additions brought by the new framework. Then author Alain Chautard reviews a plan to migrate a sample weather application from its original Angular 1.x codebase.
Learn how to migrate blocks of code incrementally, as opposed to porting code in bulk, and get a brief introduction to TypeScript and ECMAScript 6. Along the way, Alain shows you how to gradually deprecate $scope, upgrade services, work with the component router, transition forms, and more.
By the end of this course, you'll be up to speed with the fundamental building blocks of Angular 2 development, and fully capable (and confident) transitioning existing Angular 1.x projects to the new environment, ready to explore everything that Angular 2 has to offer.
