Getting Started with Angular 2

Angular 2 is finally released.  But the biggest problem with learning Angular 2 is that it is a “Choose your own adventure” kind of framework.  And while React has a similar problem, I think Angular has out done them.  This means that you can learn bits and pieces of Angular 2, but it will be a while before you get a cohesive understanding of what choices you need to make, which choices are the right choices, and why all of this matters.

And all of this is even more difficult if you are a relatively new programmer.  I’m talking those of you who have less than 5 years of experience and even some of you who have less than 10 years of experience.

So, what I thought I’d do to address this very real problem is to assemble a very opinionated Angular 2 tutorial.  Over the next several weeks I plan to show you how to create a simple CRUD application using Angular 2 in a way that will scale up to larger projects.  While I may mention some of the other options along the way, what you’ll end up with is the “right way.”  OK.  To be fair, most of what I consider “right” is opinion.  Some very smart people disagree with me.  But, some other very smart people agree with me too.
