Learning Angular 2: where to start ?

Angular 2

I often get this question: now that Angular 2 is available, where do I start ??

During the last few months, I have read literally tons of article and blog posts on different Angular 2 topics, some of them are very good, and very deep, but might not all be appropriate for someone who just want to start on Angular 2.

So I compiled here my ultimate reading list for anyone who wants to start understanding and grasp the concepts of Angular 2.

At the end it consists of only 2 articles, but those are must-read!

The Core Concepts of Angular 2


This is an excellent walk through on three of the core concepts of Angular 2: components, dependency injection, and bindings.

Then you need to read this article from the official docs on Angular Modules:

Angular Modules (NgModules)


This is the definitive article on the fourth fundamental concept of Angular 2: ngModule.

When you have finished reading this article, read it again… seriously, read it AGAIN!

That’s it, now you are ready to start building your first Angular 2 app, you will find plenty of good tutorials out there!
