Angular Boot Camp

Master Angular Faster

Google's Angular family of frameworks are extremely productive 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 - and we focus on real, complex data-centric applications.

Our curriculum covers the current Angular version, with ongoing updates; we currently teach with Angular 5 (beta) and Angular 4, with most of the content applicable back to Angular 2. We also offer occasional classes for AngularJS 1.x .

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, San Jose CA, Washington DC, St. Louis MO, New York NY, 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 4 training, Angular 5 training

We offer two versions of the class: The Angular 2/4/5 class is suited for teams building with the current generation of Angular.

The AngularJS 1.x class prepares developers for the long-proven AngularJS, and includes preparation for an easier future upgrade. It focuses on AngularJS 1.5 / 1.6, with the improvements that arrived with those versions. We can also provide customized services for teams supporting older AngularJS applications.

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 3000+ developers from hundreds of companies – including many Fortune 500 companies.

What Do Our Students Say?

“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

FAQs

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 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: Is the onilne class the same as the in-person class?
A: The class contents are the same. We strive to recreate the "magic" from our in-person classes online, by helping students with their workshop Angular applications via an online IDE. Still, there are certain unavoidable advantages to attending in person. You can learn more from our blog post about online-vs-in-person.
Q: Should our team attend a public class, or a private on-site class?
A: We offer group discounts for 4 or more tickets; but if your have 6 or more developers it may be more economical to bring an instructor to you for a private on-site class. Please contact us for pricing. Also, in a private class the instructor can tailor the class topics to your team's needs, and discuss your specific use cases in more depth.
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: Can I receive a Certificate of Completion?
A: Yes, we can issue you a certificate on request; please inquire by email after your class is complete.
Q: Is an AngularJS 1.x class still available?
A: We started teaching Angular 2 in late 2015, and keep up with each new version since then, as they are very similar. We also still offer occasional classes covering AngularJS 1.x, which is very different from the newer versions. See the upcoming class date list and choose whichever fits your needs.
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 occasioanlly workw ith a small Node program for a simple build process, but development of Node services is outside 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: 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.
