Become an Angular developer

“My mentor was amazing. He not only provided support and accountability but true friendship. I always looked forward to our weekly hangout and a chance to ask questions and show off my work. He was always patient and took the time to make sure I really understood the curriculum. He wasn't trying to push me through, he was teaching me. Things have gone full circle and I honestly couldn't have done it on my own. Thinkful was the foundation I needed to get going and help me live my dream.”

Your next step in Frontend Development
Build dynamic, single-page apps in Angular

Master the fastest-growing JavaScript framework that's revolutionizing the web. Angular lets you build dynamic, single-page web applications from scratch that are so smooth your users will forget they're still inside a web browser. This course was written by Matias Niemela, a Google engineer, a core contributor to Angular. The course covers the MVC (Model-View-Controller) model, how to wrap APIs in services, and most importantly (for Angular) how to extend your HTML vocabulary with directives. You’ll gain important hands-on development experience and graduate with fresh additions for your personalized portfolio. If you don't have experience with HTML and CSS, we recommend enrolling in the Frontend Web Development course first.

Thinkful does an excellent job at structuring core development concepts into bite-size, but challenging, lessons. The one-on-one mentorship helps solidify any difficulties along the way, and mentors are very patient to answer even the simplest questions. The coursework is relevant to industry standards and does a great job at stretching you where you need it most.

Another amazing perk - if you stick around for 3 months, you get lifetime access to new Thinkful lessons and can attend live lectures on dev topics led by experts.

Overall, I loved my Thinkful experience!

I took the Frontend Web Development course about a year ago and decided to sign up for the the Angular course in February. The FEWD course about a year ago wasn't perfect, but I got through it and learned a lot. I learned enough to coast through the front end part of my brick and mortar Java boot camp. That's why I decided to go with Thinkful again and take the Angular course.

I'm about half way through it and I'm much happier with the quality of the content. It's written much more clearly and understandably these days. The projects that we do are great because we build on the same few projects the whole class. And, of course, the mentorship is what makes it great. My mentor has helped me get unstuck many times. It helps keep me motivated. Were I learning by myself, I'm afraid that getting stuck without help might decrease my motivation. That's why the mentorship at Thinkful is worth so much.

I was happy with the FEWD class and I'm happy with this one, too. I'll probably end up taking more as well. It's a worthwhile investment.

I strongly feel your courses including its structure works and so glad I found this site. In addition, your staff contains real people whom I could talk to and understand people (case in point--I had the need to study front-end with Javascript and I was given free access to that course and my mentor drilled me for my job interview and that worked! I got the job as a Sr. Web Developer close to home). I knew I could do the job--it's just that lots of gray areas in my full stack skills and that's where you guys came in--fill those gray areas and expand my knowledge more in the same way I teach myself and that is to actual projects.

Frontend in AngularJS

This was a great class, boosting my frontend productivity. The Angular (v1.3) curriculum presented the necessary info and concepts to understand a very large portion of the framework.

It seems that many people today are struggling with Angular, but I love it. Working on old jQuery only apps was such a pain. The Angular framework employs convention over configuration, providing it's own way to create a slick MVC separation between the view (HTML/CSS) and the JavaScript/backend and model. It's built-in dependency injection system is genius. The controllers are super easy to learn. The services handle all business logic and talking with backends. Directives really make Angular what HTML6 should be. I know that are some problems with AngularJS (makes SEO tough, startup load can be slow), but it is such a huge leap forward in SPA development.

The Thinkful team built a very powerful curriculum. Just do it one lesson at a time, and you will come out the end understanding most of the Angular framework. My mentor (Leon) was in the UK (six hours later) and was very helpful. He had been using Angular from the early days and really knew the framework. If you already have a bit of backend experience, having Angular under your belt will definitely give you a boost in productivity. Use Thinkful if you want to do it right.

I took the Thinkful front-end course and am now in the middle of the Angular course. After dabbling in code for a while and learning with other tools, I can definitely say that Thinkful has played a significant role in propelling me further in my programming skills and confidence.

What I love most about Thinkful are the hands-on projects you are tasked with at the end of almost each lesson. These projects are what really help me absorb the curriculum and the new tools and skills I'm learning. I've tried a lot of tutorials and online programming schools before including Codecademy and Code School, which were great. But what I was really missing were opportunities to use what I was learning in a real context. With Thinkful I've built numerous apps and sites and now feel way more confident to build something from scratch.

The mentor aspect of Thinkful also played a huge role in this, since there was someone reviewing my code each week and giving me feedback. My mentor also went out of his way to push me further when he saw that I was quite ahead in the course, by giving me extra curriculum projects to work on.

One could argue that you could find similar projects to work on and just use free tools. Maybe. But for me the bundle of the Thinkful curriculum, plus mentor, plus projects was really a winning formula. Different people learn in different ways. But if you're busy with a day job and family, and are serious about learning, I really would recommend Thinkful. It will save you time and maximize your learning. Good luck!
