Angular Boot Camp

Master AngularJS Faster

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.

AngularJS Class, Our Office, Online, or 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.

Our live, in-person class lasts 3 days, of 7-8 hours per day. We offer the class in San Francisco CA, New York NY, St. Louis MO, Washington DC, London (UK), or at your site. The class is hands-on; less than 2/3rds of the content is lecture. It focuses on AngularJS 1.2-1.4, and prepares students for Angular 2.0. (see our Angular 2 plans)

We also offer an onlineedition of the class, which lasts 4 days of 5-6 hours per day, to more easily fit various time zones.

Why Angular Boot Camp?

At Oasis Digital our team of developers uses Angular every day on complex business applications. In the process of mastering these tools and teaching internally, we have learned to anticipate and answer questions, and to help developers through the challenge of learning quickly.

Unlike video or lecture-style courses, our courses include extensive, hands-on work; we provide multiple instructors to larger classes to ensure a great workshop experience. Even the online edition of the class is "hands-on" from a distance.

Who Should Attend?

Angular Boot Camp is an excellent starting point for corporate teams as well as individual developers. We adjust the depth of the class to accommodate student knowledge.

Angular Beginners

Modest knowledge of HTML and JavaScript are sufficient to start at the beginning of the first day and learn Angular. Beginning students usually become proficient enough to participate effectively in an Angular project.

Using Angular

Students already using Angular for weeks or months often comment that they learned countless important aspects in class that they had missed in their own study, frequently saying "ah, I wondered about that!" as the class proceeds.

Experienced with Angular

Even the most experienced Angular students often learn worthwhile new techniques and ways of explaining Angular to others. They ask excellent questions and get valuable tips on organizing complex Angular projects from our experienced instructors.

Proven Results

Since late 2013, we have trained hundreds of developers from dozens of companies – over half from Fortune 500 companies.

Class Outline and Agenda

This class covers a wide variety of AngularJS features. First you will learn all the AngularJS basics, then you will build an AngularJS application.

The class is organized approximately as follows; but we often vary the agenda and order, or reallocate the time among the topics, to meet student needs.

Angular Versions Covered

As of Spring 2015, the class primarily covers AngularJS versions 1.3 and 1.4. We mention key restrictions for applications still using version 1.2, and prepare students for upcoming features of Angular 2.0.

We believe this curriculum covers the basics well, and positions students to use AngularJS very effectively.

For a much more detailed understanding of the class materials, review an example transcript of Angular Boot Camp from early 2014.


Each student needs:

  • Laptop (Windows, Linux, or Mac).
  • Chrome (web browser). AngularJS works well with all major browsers, but we use the Chrome debugging tools in the class.
  • Text editor or JavaScript-capable IDE.

Student Prerequisites

Students should have experience with HTML, JavaScript, and jQuery or another DOM manipulation library, for example by having worked in server-side web development (in Java, JSP, PHP, ASP, etc.) in the past.


Q: How strictly does the class stick to a set curriculum?
A: We have a set of topics which we always cover, but we also readily adjust the content to match student needs and questions. If you have a tough AngularJS question, it is likely that one of the instructors will have a helpful answer.
Q: What about Angular 2?
A: We are preparing for Angular 2, and can help you prepare also. Please see our Angular 2 plans for details.
Q: Does the class cover server-side API / data services?
A: We touch briefly on service API design for easy interoperation with Angular, but development of such services doesn't fit in this very busy three days. We are considering adding a class about those topics, and Oasis Digital developers are available to consult or assist with that outside the scope of the class.
Q: Does the class cover NodeJS?
A: We discuss Node, and assist students in installing Node; Node is used in much of the development tooling for Angular and other JavaScript frameworks. Students write a very small Node program for a simple build process, but development of Node services is beyond the scope of the class.
Q: Does the class cover HTML and CSS?
A: Students should already be familar with HTML and CSS, but we teach aspects of HTML and CSS as needed, in the context of the HTML DOM which Angular manipulates.
Q: Is a more advanced class available?
A: Angular Boot Camp covers introductory through intermediate topics deeply, plus a few advanced topics. For more extensive advanced material, contact us. We can arrange a followup, deeper dive in advanced topics for your developers.
