Angular 6 Development

Angular 6 Development


This course is for anyone who wants to learn Angular 6 development.

This course takes a thorough look at all the new features in Angular 6, as well as providing in-depth coverage of everything introduced from Angular 2. Where appropriate, we also highlight related concepts in AngularJS (version 1.x), to help AngularJS developers make the leap into the current Angular library.


You should have familiarity with HTML and JavaScript programming.

Experience in AngularJS 1.x is beneficial but not required.


4 days.
