Chapter 1, Getting Started with TypeScript, provides us with an introduction to TypeScript and its features. We will create a small ToDo application, which provides insights into basic TypeScript features.
Chapter 2, Our First Application – Sports News Combinator, introduces us to the basic concepts of TypeScript and Angular. We'll take a look at types in TypeScript and how to set up an Angular application, along with the concept of components.
Chapter 3, Sports News Combinator – Adding Features, covers important concepts of TypeScript, such as interfaces, classes, and object-oriented programming. In Angular, we look at data binding, directives, and templates.
Chapter 4, Sports News Combinator – the Final Version, adds final features to the application and, in doing so, covers decorators, dependency injection, routing, and HTTP using RxJS observables in Angular.
Chapter 5, Application 2 – Trello, is our second application. With this application, we'll look at generics, namespaces, and modules in TypeScript. We'll also look at some of the advanced features of Angular, such as communication between components and life cycle hooks.
Chapter 6, Trello – Adding Features, takes us deeper into the feature set of TypeScript and Angular. We cover iterators and async programming using callbacks, promises, and observables. In Angular, we'll look at pipes and dependency injection.
Chapter 7, Testing the Trello Application, introduces us to the testing features provided in Angular. We look at the unit testing of services, pipes, and components.
Chapter 8, Trello – Using Angular CLI, provides us with the details of the Angular CLI and its feature set. We look at creating new applications, generating components, services, pipes, classes, and interfaces. Then, we shift our focus to features such as building, serving, and linting any Angular-based web application.
Chapter 9, Trello Mobile – Using NativeScript, allows us to convert our web application into a native mobile application. In this chapter, we will look at the NativeScript framework and see how we can use its features to create Android and iOS applications from our web application.
Chapter 10, Deploying Sample Trello on the Cloud Using Microsoft Azure, explains cloud as our deployment platform. We will look at Azure as Platform as a Service and deploy our application using FTP and GitHub. We will also look at how Azure enables us to perform continuous deployment for our application.
