Discover everything you need to know to build your own Angular 2 applications the hands-on way
This book builds three apps with varying degrees of complexity. It starts with a simple ‘Guess the Number’ game, which serves as a platform to launch you into the world of Angular. Next, you will learn to construct a popular ‘7-Minute Workout’ app, covering the building blocks of Angular. The final app, ‘Personal Trainer’ morphs the existing ‘7-Minute Workout’ into a full-fledged personal workout builder and runner, covering advanced directive building, which is the most fundamental and powerful feature of Angular.
