Angular and The Future of Web Apps

Currently in class we are learning about the tools and functionality of Angular. Angular is a JavaScript based open source web application framework. It is currently being maintained by Google and some other developers. Angular is open source which attracts many users and continually increases the framework’s growth in popularity. Recently, we have seen just this. Developers are choosing Angular because of its great framework and because it enables Progressive Web Applications. Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) is a term that is being universally accepted by developers across the world. It is a way of creating the best web and mobile apps and taking advantage of the most recent technologies in order to make for more efficient and fast web apps. Google has been leading the initiative for Progressive Web Apps by dedicating their design philosophy behind and distributing public data and toolkits in order to help people get started on their web apps as well. I chose this article because I think it is a great example of how Angular is a great framework to work with because it is forward thinking relative to Progressive Web Applications. It will also help further my understanding of Angular and allows me to see the greater benefits of the framework.

Developers want their apps to be more efficient and they also want them to be scalable. This goes for both desktop and mobile apps. By creating web apps that are user friendly  and provide the scalability that allows multiple types of users to interact with it, you can create a very successful platform because it gives users a reason to keep using your app. Angular is great because it is an open-source framework that has a ton of support for it.

Angular has gone through many great changes that improve its functionality, sustainability, and reliability. These are also the main keys of a Progressive Web App, which is why a lot of developers tend to like it. The first version of AngularJS released in 2012. Until this time, no one has ever really seen a web app infrastructure that was this reliable and easy to understand. Angular has the ability to reduce boilerplate and also greatly improved code testability. Angular then make a great leap in 2014 with the team’s announcement of Angular 2. Angular 2 was the newest version of Angular and it was written with Microsoft’s superset of JavaScript and TypeSript. As you can imagine, these language are two very popular and easy languages. Angular 2 was also focused on being more compact and extremely fast.

As we can see, Angular 2 is becoming the fastest growing environment for web app development upon many developers. This affects me personally because Angular is a great tool to utilize when designing and planning out Web Applications. I also learned that the future of Progressive Web Applications is quickly evolving and how Angular 2’s infrastructure is a great resource to consider. In the future, I hope to expand my experience with Angular and wish to apply that knowledge towards the development of reliable and easy to use web apps.
