Introduction to Angular 7 Programming Training

The Introduction to Angular 7 Programming Training course offered by WebAgeSolutions covers all the essential topics and is designed to get students up and running with Angular development in the shortest amount of time. Developers and Application Designers as well as those who are tasked with supporting Angular applications will gain valuable knowledge required for success in their job roles while taking this course.  Angular is a JavaScript framework that supports the development of single-page applications that run in browsers and can also be used to develop responsive web sites and hybrid mobile applications. 

This course will show you how to set up an end-to-end Angular development environment to develop, build and host your Angular applications. Details of the Typescript language, essential to Angular development, are also covered. From there the course introduces you to various building blocks of Angular applications including: Components, Directives, Services and Pipes. Form development is covered along with the essentials of form validation and custom validators. The Angular HttpClient, which allows you to make network calls from your application, is covered in detail along with how to use Observable objects which allow you to integrate reactive programming paradigms.
The course includes labs for each major topic that allow you to get hands-on experience programming and troubleshooting Angular code. 



In this training, attendees will learn how to:

  • Set up a complete Angular development environment
  • Develop single page applications
  • Code with TypeScript
  • Work with Angular CLI to create applications and generate components
  • Create Components, Directives, Services, Pipes,  and Custom Validators
  • Develop component templates that include Angular directives and bindings.  
  • Retrieve and post data to network applications and RESTful services
  • Format data for display using Angular Pipes
  • Develop Template based and Reactive forms to collect data
  • Navigate between multiple view screens using the Angular component router


Web development experience using HTML, CSS and JavaScript is required to get the most out of this Angular course.  Knowledge of the browser DOM is also useful. Prior Angular experience, with AngularJS or the current version of Angular, is not required.
