Google's AngularJS is an extremely productive framework for complex “Single Page Apps”. AngularJS can be tough to learn, and you need to learn it well to obtain all its benefits. We can’t make it easy, but we can teach you.
Our AngularJS courses lasts 3 days, of 7-8 hours per day. The courses are hands-on; less than 2/3rds of the content is lecture.
We offer courses in our office in St. Louis, MO, occasionally in other cities around the US, or at your site.
Angular Boot Camp covers introductory and intermediate content. At the end of this class, each student should be able to use AngularJS to make an end-to-end, working application.
Advanced Angular goes much deeper, and is suited to developers already in the midst of building real angular-based applications.
At Oasis Digital our team of developers uses Angular every day on client projects. In the process of mastering these tools and teaching them to new team members, we have learned to anticipate and answer numerous questions that come up, and to help developers through the challenge of learning quickly.
Unlike online or lecture-style courses, our courses include extensive, hands-on work; we send multiple instructors as needed to ensure a great workshow experience.
Most of our work at Oasis Digital is the construction of complex business applications, so our courses are about complex business applications, not “Hello World”.
Angular Boot Camp is an excellent starting point for corporate teams as well as individual developers.
Since late 2013, we have trained hundreds of developers from dozens of companies – over half from Fortune 500 companies.
“Having more than one instructor and others who have used Angular was beneficial. Hearing real-world experiences is what I like in an on-site course.” -Glenn W.
“Angular Exposure from a skilled developer (not just a preacher).” -Elijah H.
“Great overview, easy-to-understand examples, very knowledgeable instructor who was able to answer just about everything we asked him. Never felt at any point that it was going too fast or too slow. Learned a ton of useful information without feeling overwhelmed.” -Phil J.
“Knowledgeable and authoritative instructor. He has an engaging style and presents the material well.” -Joe W.
“The instructor was probably the best I have ever experienced. Deeply knowledgeable about all of the subject matter, able to answer every question (including a handful that he was uncertain about, he was able to derive and demonstrate in short order). Very well spoken.” -Daniel M.
“With a second instructor helping the students, things moved along. … Mixing lab work with lectures. There’s no substitute for hands-on work.” -John S.
“Very knowledgeable instructors.” -Brad S.
“Very knowledgeable and friendly instructors.” -Peter C.
“Very responsive to the needs and questions of the attendees.” -Greg

Paul Spears joined Oasis Digital several years ago, and was involved from the very beginning of our journey to AngularJS. He has personally taught and mentored numerous new members of our team including (for extra challenge) several waves of interns.
Our assistant instructors are Oasis Digital team members: developers who use AngularJS intensely. Assistant instructors teach some topics and assist with workshops.
We're always eager to talk with potential new instructors - if you have extensive experience with Angular,
This course covers a wide variety of AngularJS features. First you will learn all the AngularJS basics, then you will build an AngularJS application.
The course is organized approximately as follows; but we often vary the agenda order, or reallocate the time among the topics, to meet student and class needs.
As of early 2015, the course primarily covers AngularJS versions 1.3 and 1.2. Version 1.4 will be included shortly after its release; though few 1.4 features matter for the purpose of learning. We also point out various upcoming features of AngularJS 2.0, with an eye toward preparing your team and project for migration when the time comes.
We believe this curriculum covers the basics well, and positions students to use AngularJS effectively.
For a much more detailed understanding of the course materials, review an example transcript of Angular Boot Camp from early 2014.
The Advanced Angular course curriculum varies considerably by student request. We start with the list of potential topics below, and allocate time according to student interest and available instructor expertise. Many of these topics are continuations of the material presented in Angular Boot Camp.

ng-if, etc. ($compile service)

To be ready for the advanced course, students should have some experience writing nontrivial AngularJS applications. For example, they might have attended our Angular Boot Camp, then worked on a project for a few months. Or they might have learned AngularJS on their own, started building a real application, and reached a level of experience where they are ready for advanced material.
