If you're in the web development space, you have no doubt heard the buzz around Angular. Over the last few years, Angular has taken over the web app development space with a vengeance. This year, Google is releasing the second version of Angular, Angular 2. It's a huge change from how you built apps with Angular 1.x. The biggest challenge with Angular2 is how many different things there are to get ramped up on from the new syntax, module loaders, to TypeScript or to stick with JavaScript, you name it. These are all good things, and in reality, the surface area of Angular2 is much smaller than Angular 1.x. In this demo heavy session, you'll get your feet wet as you demystify and build your first Angular2 app. You will build this as an Office Add-in for one of the Office clients. So you'll walk away learning two things: building apps using Angular2 and building Office Add-ins.
