How long will it take to learn Angular?

Angular is a web framework invented by Google, it’s been so long and angular is evolving day by day, more functionalities are added, enhanced performance and suitable for higher interactivity website, due to this more and more organizations has started adopting angular as their product’s front-end. Angular is being popular amongst other frameworks and libraries, this many big and small companies are demanding Angular as a primary skill along with other backend support which turns its importance on a higher level into the industry. Due to such reasons, many developers are eager to learn this framework so that they can get benefits from their career perspectives. But they may have one question in their mind that Angular is interesting to learn but how can we leaned and how much time it will take? I would say, there is no direct answer to that because the experience of the candidate matters a lot and it may be.

  • Beginner

  • Intermediate

  • Expert

So if we follow these experience level, the person should know JavaScript which is must for learning Angular, not just only Angular but there are tons of other frameworks and libraries are built on JavaScript so at last, we can say if you know the basic of JavaScript then you can start learning Angular right away.

What to learn?

Angular is a large and very comprehensive framework, but you can do a lot with just basic level templates, controllers, data-binding. Routing and so on. If you want to learn Angular 2+ then skip we can skip angularJs, as both are totally different and more importantly Angular is completely re-written over AngularJs. AngularJS is based on pure MVC (model view controller) while angular 2+ is based on the component-based standard. You don't need to know anything about AngularJS, instead, we can start learning Angular 2+ right away. If you are ready to spend at least 2-3 hours daily on learning Angular then around 2-3 months are sufficient. To grasp angular, we should know its core concepts first and few of them are listed below.

  • Component

  • Directive

  • Data bindings

  • Routing

  • Dependency injection

  • Deployment

  • Module

  • Forms

  • Observables and RxJs

  • Bootstrapping

  • Animations

So above are the few core concepts that we need to learn, for that you should try the official angular.io documentation, and the great thing about that docs is they have detailed explanation along with a suitable example in a form of runnable application which you can try your own while learning.>Below is the home page of angular.io documentation to get started with Angular.

Learning Typescript

Angular is completely written on the language called TypeScript which is an object-oriented, strongly typed and compile language developed by Microsoft. Basically, typescript is a typed superset of JavaScript which runs on any platform, browsers, different devices, and the operating systems. So if you are interested to get started with Angular, then TypeScript is a key to Angular and using it we can create the application along with the Angular side by side. There are a few features about TypeScript which we need to learn that are given below.

  • Environment setup

  • Functions

  • Variable

  • Arrays

  • Loops

  • Operators

  • Conditional statements

  • Classes

  • Objects

  • Namespaces

  • Tuples

And many more features that are useful while web application development, but you may think that what is the best place from where you can learn all these core features of the TypeScript then answer is its official documentation typescriptlang.org/docs and its home page will look like this.

Now after leaning all of the concepts of Angular, and TypeScript we should ask a question to ourselves that it is enough to get me into the live project? Should you decide to learn Angular 2+, you will be endowed with the skills required to develop cross-platform applications, and your newfound superpowers will prove to be valuable and profitable for you and your organization for years to come. After completing this learning guides, you can look forward to having a proficient-level understanding of the Angular and the ability to use it to build rich JavaScript-based applications which interact with the end-user.

Online resources to learn Angular

Self-learning is important nowadays for the newbies because no one will be available round the clock to teach you without taking money(I mean free of cost) all the time so it may possible that you need to learn it by using online resources. There are plenty of resources available to learn angular online and the best one you can choose based on the comfortless of yours.

These are some ways we can choose from in order to get started quickly to learn anything on our own. Before working on an enterprise or a major Angular application, it’s important to have a set of best practices that helps guide the way towards the project’s completion and promote high-quality code standards. Otherwise, it may possible that your Angular apps will quickly get messy and hard to maintain due to its structure. Simply put there's a lot to learn and I think we will need to be very specific about our learning path and strategies unless you want to find yourself deep in a swamp. It's going to be challenging at least. Of course, this depends on our requirements. Angular can be just great for some quick prototyping.

Summary

There is a quote “nothing is impossible”, but to learn something new, we need to put our all efforts and our mindset should be clear towards our goal for whatever we are spending our time. It’s never too late to learn anything, the matter is just that we need to figure our way of doing things, I hope this guide will help you to understand what to learn and while learning how much time it will take to get started with the small and enterprise projects, do put your efforts and keep reading.
