Course Description

Get ready to build Angular 2 web and mobile applications by learning the TypeScript programming language.


  • Basic computer knowledge
  • Mac, Linux or PC


Do you want to build Angular 2 web and mobile applications? If that's your goal it's vital that you learn the TypeScript programming language, and that's exactly what we're going to walk through in this course. My name is Jordan Hudgens, and I'll be your instructor for the course. In addition to being the lead instructor for devCamp I've also been building web applications for over a decade for organizations such as Eventbrite and Quip.

After you have completed this course you'll be ready to start learning how to work with the Angular 2 application framework. Angular 2 was rebuilt from the ground up in order to take advantage of modern development practices, and the framework creators actually built the new version completely in the TypeScript programming language. This is the reason why TypeScript is so important to learn for aspiring Angular developers.

In this course we're going to start with the basics and I'm going to show you how fun it is to build TypeScript programs. After you're familiar with the syntax, we're going to move onto more advanced TypeScript development techniques, such as: working with closures, object oriented programming, real time asynchronous development, and decorators.

My focus for this course isn't to teach you how to build TypeScript console applications. Instead, my goal is to teach you the skills you will need in order to build real world Angular 2 applications. And actually, this course includes the exact material we teach at our devCamp coding bootcamps prior to students going through our immersive Angular 2 course.

There are no technical pre-requisites to this course. The ideal student is an individual who wants to learn how to build Angular 2 applications. I will show you how to install and run TypeScript programs on both a Mac and a PC. And you can use either operating system to follow along with the course material.

Each lesson of the course is paired with the source code that I used in the lecture so you can check your work.

Please feel free to review the course curriculum and I look forward to going through the material with you on your development journey!

Who this course is for:

  • Students who want to learn the foundational concepts required for Angular 2 development
  • Students aspiring to learning the TypeScript programming language.
  • No programming experience is necessary for this course
