Developing a Web Application Using Angular (Part 1)

With over $2 trillion in annual internet commerce sales and 1.24 billion websites existing in the world, developing clean, concise, and intuitive web applications is essential for most of the software market. In particular, the Single-Page Application (SPA) has become the dominant paradigm, allowing users to easily navigate from one page to the next without interrupting the fluidity and User Experience (UX) of the application.
In recent years, there have been numerous SPA frameworks that have earned their stripes, but foremost among these contenders is Angular. Created by Google in 2010, Angular was originally developed using JavaScript (and aptly called AngularJS), but in 2016, Google released a new version of Angular based on Microsoft’s Typescript programming language. Since then, creating Angular applications has looked much like creating a Java application, and thus, has spurred on the use of Angular by countless companies, including PayPal, Nike, HBO, Sony, and General Motors (for more information, see Angular 2 vs. React).
