Resources to Learn Angular 2

by Green H. Eduonix Learning Solutions

Angular 2 and Angular can be compared to fraternal twins and while they may look the same, they differ from each other in so many ways. Angular 2 is not the latest upgrade, but rather a complete rewrite of Angular and comes packed with many more features that Angular was previously lacking.

Angular 2 is a modern, cross-platform and scalable framework that simplifies the process of designing a front-end framework.

The first and foremost, it completely changes the language it is written in and now uses Microsoft’s TypeScript instead of ECMAScript, which was used in Angular. However, don’t panic, TypeScript is backward compatible with ECMAScript, allowing developers to use the benefits of both TypeScript as well as JavaScript (aka ECMAScript).

Angular 2 has also shifted focus from primary desktop development to mobile development and has even incorporated OOP, or object oriented programming into the language.
