Front-End JavaScript Frameworks: AngularJS

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology via Coursera

This course may be unavailable.


This course concentrates mainly on Javascript based front-end frameworks, and in particular, AngularJS, the most popular among them. We will review the model view controller (MVC) design-pattern in the context of AngularJS. You will be introduced to various aspects of AngularJS including two-way data binding and angular directives and filters. You will then be introduced to angular controllers and scopes. UI routing and templates will then be reviewed. Finally we will look at angular modules and services. Single page application (SPA) development using Angular will also be explored. You must have either completed the previous course in the specialization on Bootstrap, or have a working knowledge of Bootstrap to be able to navigate this course.

At the end of this course you will:

- Be familiar with client-side Javascript frameworks and the MVC design pattern
- Be able to implement single page applications in AngularJS
- Be able to use various Angular features including directives, filters, controllers, scope and routing
- Be able to implement a functional front-end web application using AngularJS

This course will close for new learner enrollment on Aug 3, 2017 PST. If you have already enrolled, you will continue to see it on your Coursera Dashboard as long as you remain enrolled.

This specialization is being shut down since we have launched the new Full Stack Web and Multiplatform Mobile App Development Specialization with all new courses on Bootstrap 4, Angular, Ionic Ver. 3 and Cordova, NativeScript Version 3 and Server-side Development with NodeJS, Express and MongoDB. Interested students should move to the new specialization.

Front-End Javascript Frameworks: AngularJS Overview
In this module we get a quick introduction to front-end JavaScript frameworks, Angular built-in directives, the Model-View-Controller framework, Angular Modules and Controllers and Angular filters.

Task Runners, Angular Scope, Forms and Form Validation
In this module, we will first get an overview of Task runners. We will explore Grunt and Gulp in some detail. Thereafter, we study Angular scope and its use as glue between a view and a controller. Then we study Angular support for forms and form validation. The exercises are time consuming in this module, so you need some patience.

Single Page Applications
In this week, you learn about dependency injection in Angular. You will learn how to design custom services. You will learn about Angular templates and their use in single page applications. You will also learn about single page applications and use Angular ngRoute and Angular UI-Router to design single page applications.

Client-Server Communication and Angular Testing
In this module you will explore client-server communication using both Angular $http and $resource services. You will then use the Yo web tool from the Yeoman toolset to scaffold an Angular application. You will also learn about testing Angular applications.

    This is the best Coursera Course that I have experienced to date. Every week is organized with theorical presentations followed by practices. This course asked me more personal investment than other Coursera course, in particular than the previous…

    The course is really good. It covers a lot of topics. It is a very gentle introduction to Angular framework.

    But one thing to keep in mind is that the course is a bit outdated. In a sense that the newer version of Angular which is Angular 2 is out so at this point taking this course to learn Angular 1 is not a good decision. Angular 2 is the future and it is completely different from Angular 1. Believe me, they are two different frameworks.

    So at this point i would not suggest anyone to take this course. Instead learn Angular 2 from scratch.
