In the episode of Adventures in Angular, the panel’s discussion topic is about upgrading Angular. The panel covers preparation and the difficulties of getting started with the upgrade service. Notably, basic users do not understand the process of the updated with simple applications. Also, playing with the idea to rewrite your applications in Angular directly, or do we just upgrade?

and much more!
