HTML5 Single Page Apps (SPAs) deliver enhanced user experiences with significant client-side interactions using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS. Angular does all the heavy lifting for you to pave the road towards building a SPA. This workshop explores the core pieces that help you build end-to-end SPA solutions using Angular, including code structure and the most used Angular style guide, using data binding and MV*, abstracted remote data calls, page navigation and routing, rich data features and how to design and architect your Angular modules.

The workshop also covers Angular 2 to show the pros and cons to consider when migration time comes.
