Angular: Getting Started Course Update (for v7)

Filed under: Angular,Angular CLI @ 2:58 pm

This post identifies the latest changes to the “Angular: Getting Started” Pluralsight course.

History

Angular 2 first appeared around June of 2015 as alpha.27. The first beta release of Angular 2 was December 12, 2015, a great time to start on an Angular 2 getting started course. The first release of the “Angular: Getting Started” course was on April 1st, 2016. The code examples for the course were valid through Angular beta.15. From that time until release, Angular underwent numerous changes … some, such as the new router and the introduction of Angular modules, were significant.

Angular 2.0.0 was released on September 14th, 2016, so that was a great time to update the “Angular: Getting Started” course. That update was released October 19, 2016 and completely replaced the entire course. The original course was deprecated and the update was given a new link in the Pluralsight library.

Angular v4.0 was released on March 23, 2017 and included many great compiler and performance improvements, but not many feature changes that affected this course. However, the Angular CLI was also released around this time and began to be a viable and very productive alternative for generating Angular code.

Angular v4.3 was released on July 14th, 2017 and introduced a new HttpClient module. This seemed like a great time then to update this course *and* include content on using the Angular CLI. This update was provided as a patch to the existing course and was published to the Pluralsight library on August 10, 2017.

Angular v6 was released on May 3, 2018. There was very little changed in Angular, but RxJS changed significantly as did Bootstrap. So time for another update to this course. This update was provided as a patch to the existing course and was published to the Pluralsight library on July 11, 2018.

Angular v7 was released on October 18, 2018. There was very little changed in Angular, but the CLI was enhanced and includes user prompts.

The key changes include:

  • Update to Angular v7.
  • Update to the Angular CLI to include user prompts.

The detailed changes to this course include:

Module 2: First Things First

  • Replaced screens showing the package.json to show the v7 packages. (Clip 6, 7)

Module 13: Building, Testing, and Deploying with the CLI

  • Replaced screens showing the package.json to show the v7 packages. (Clip 2, 3, 4)
  • Modified the demo of the CLI to include the user prompts. (Clip 3)

Enjoy!
