While Angular has been around for a while, finding some good solid resources to support your Angular efforts can be a little tough.
Thankfully, Angular experts—some you may have heard of and some who may be new to you—have filled bookshelves across the world and the blogosphere with some excellent resources.
So to help you refine your skills with this framework, here are three of the best Angular books to include in your reading list:
The AngularJS Web Application Development Cookbook (from Packt Publishing) by Matt Frisbie will get you cooking on your AngularJS-based web apps. The book is full of examples and descriptions. It will provide you with quick answers to your Angular questions, help you with problem solving as you develop apps with Angular, and provide you with plenty of easy to understand examples. Frisbie’s cookbook brings you recipes for architecting AngularJS applications designed to scale, writing robust test suites, creating application modules, syntax and browser tricks, and optimizing your AngularJS creations for maximum performance.
Another title from Packt focuses on interface design. AngularJS UI Development, written by Amit Gharat and Matthias Nehlsen, covers topics such as developing and using responsive layouts and powerful CSS3 frameworks (such as Twitter Bootstrap and Foundation) to design mobile-friendly applications, how to solve some of the common UI design problems, and ensuring your app is sufficiently dynamic by integrating RESTful APIs in AngularJS. This detailed book also delivers a thorough overview of CSS-responsive frameworks, various UI widgets, and Angular internals.
You can get a regular dose of Angular expertise by signing up for John Papa’s weekly Angular podcasts. Find him at https://johnpapa.net/. Angular 2 seems to loom large in John Papa’s mind, as it does with many other Angular experts. Recent podcasts have covered Angular 2 in a .NET World, Upgrading from Angular 1.x to Angular 2, Angular 2 Final is Released, and NgModule. All these podcasts are listed like a table of contents, including the original air date. He also lists conferences at which he’ll be speaking and details of other content he is creating or has created. You can see him at Live! 360 in Orlando this December 5-9.
