Case Study: Migrating Angular 1.x to 2.0 and Observations about Angular 2

Angular is a framework designed to make it easier to build client applications (that is, apps written with JavaScript and HTML that run on various devices, including mobile devices and browsers). Business users often expect a rich user experience and don’t like to compromise on features just because the app is delivered over the web or via a mobile device instead of installed on a desktop. For this reason, an approach to building apps called Single Page Applications (SPA) has evolved. Angular provides built-in support for SPA via templates, components, services, and tools that help developers call web services and manipulate the data that is returned.

To answer that question, I migrated my existing Angular Health App to 2.0, then wrote a blog post with the details of the Angular migration as well as my overall observations about Angular 2. Read it here.

I hope you enjoy!
