Preface

Web Development has come a long way since its inception. Today we want web applications that are fast, robust, and engaging, and Progressive Web Applications (PWA) is the way to go ahead. In this book we are going to build powerful web applications using two of the most popular frameworks at our disposal, Angular and Laravel.

Angular is one of the most popular frontend JavaScript frameworks for creating modern and fast PWA. In addition to being very versatile and complete, Angular also includes the Angular CLI tool for generating modules, components, services, and many more utilities. On the other hand we have Laravel framework, a powerful tool for the development of web applications which explores the use of the paradigm convention over configuration.

This book gives you a practical knowledge of building modern full-stack web apps from scratch using Angular with a Laravel RESTful backend. It takes you through the most important technical facets of developing with these two frameworks and demonstrates how to put those skills into practice.
