Angular Boot Camp

Master Angular Faster

Google's Angular 2 and AngularJS are extremely productive frameworks for complex “Single Page Apps”. Angular 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 - using Angular 2.0 or AngularJS 1.x.

As of September 2016, Angular 2.0.0 has shipped, and our curriculum is updated to use it.

More than an Angular Class

Angular Boot Camp covers introductory through advanced Angular topics. It includes extensive workshop sessions, with hands-on help from our experienced developer-trainers. At the end of this class, students are usually able to use Angular to make an end-to-end, working application.

Our Office, Online, or Your Site

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. We also offer an onlineedition of the class, sometimes on the same 3x8 schedule, sometimes on a 4 day (5-6 hours per day) schedule to more easily fit various time zones.

Angular 2, or AngularJS 1.x

We offer two versions of the class: The Angular 2 version is suited for teams ready for today's latest technology.

The AngularJS 1.x version prepares developers for the long-proven AngularJS, and includes preparation for an easier future move to Angular 2. It focuses on AngularJS 1.5, and prepares students for Angular 2.0.

Angular Boot Camp in Action

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 intensively "hands-on" from a distance.

Who Should Attend?

Angular Boot Camp is an excellent starting point for corporate developer 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 developers 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.

What About Non-Programmers?

Non-programmers, such as designers who know HTML and CSS, sometimes attend private classes; they may learn enough to assist with design on Angular projects, but won't keep up with the programming aspects of the class.

Proven Results

Since late 2013, we have trained 1500+ developers from hundreds of companies – including many Fortune 500 companies.

FAQs

Q: What about Angular 2?
A: We are ready for Angular 2 - the class is offered in bothAngular 2.0 and AngularJS 1.x editions. See the upcoming class date list and choose whichever fits your needs.
Q: Is Angular 2 ready for real projects?
A: Angular 2.0.0 shipped in September 2016, but beta versions werealready in heavy use at many companies (including Google) sincle fall 2015. Angular 2 is solid and ready for production use.
Q: Do I need to take the AngularJS 1.x class before the Angular 2 class?
A: No - the Angular 2 class mentions many points of differencebetween 2 and 1, but is also well-suited for developers who have never used AngularJS 1.x.
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 Angular question, it is likely that one of the instructors will have a helpful answer.
Q: Can I receive a Certificate of Completion?
A: Yes, we can issue you a certificate on request; inquire by email after your class is complete.
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 advanced topics for students who are ready. For more extensive advanced material, contact us. We can arrange a followup, deeper dive in advanced topics for your developers. Our private classes are "calibrated" to the knowledge your team already has.
Q: How about code review and project assistance?
A: Our private Angular Boot Camp classes often include additional days of customized training, with code review and project launch or design assistance. For details, contact us.
