"The advice and techniques in this book landed me my dream job and literally doubled my salary. Well worth the $99 bucks, so much so that I have been waiting for it to be for sale just to pay the man for the good he has done to my career." -Levi Robertson

The Angular Tutorial teaches the Angular framework with an approach that simulates how a front-end developer would use Angular on the job. Many tutorials cut corners on specific concepts or features within a web framework which leave gaps between what is learned and what a developer can expect on the job. In The Angular Tutorial, you’ll be introduced to Angular in a way that’s as “real world” as possible.

In other books, interacting with a real API and database is often skipped with hard-coded values used as a substitute. Topics such as automated testing are usually skipped entirely. In The Angular Tutorial, you’ll be provided an API that you’ll setup just as you would as a front-end developer in a real job. Throughout the rest of the book you’ll then learn how to read the API’s documentation, creating and deploying a fully tested Angular application that interacts with a real database and API.

WTF is Code Companion?

When I first started learning how to program I remember taking a lot of time to research my sources before I started. I would ask myself questions like: Who is this person? Do they have a resume with credible experience and projects? Do other people enjoy this person's tutorials? What is their teaching style? How are they different from other teachers? Are they committed to this project or will these tutorials stop coming in a month? So to help you I'm going to answer these questions for you upfront.
