These introduction tutorials are like those first classes in college, aren't they?
In this tutorial, we will get started with a short discussion about what we will learn in this course. So, let's have some fun.
Welcome to this course about Angular and Less. In it, we will learn how to build a website using Angular 7, a powerful and very popular framework written in Typescript and Less, a very useful technologi that allows you to write high level CSS, which is then compiled into standard CSS language so that the browser knows what you're talking about.
I chose Angular 7 because at the time of writing this course, it's the second most recent version of Angular that was released, Angular 8 is just too new and it's also very widely used. Also, I don't feel like upgrading my system to Angular 8 just yet.
So, how will this course go you ask? Well, alongside learning how to code in Angular and Less, you will also learn a bunch of different concepts which I've mentioned in the overview. The focus of the tutorials will be on coding of course, with a pinch and dash of other useful information whenever it fits.
Aside from Angular and Less, you will also get accustomed to the integrated development environment, or IDE, called Visual Studio Code. Alongside our IDE, you will also learn how to use the node package manager, or npm and a few interesting plugins such as Angular Material and tinyMCE.
All of this will be accomplished during the tutorials of this course, with the end result being a wonderful recipe website.
And yeah, I think that about covers it for this tutorial. In the next one, we will prep our environment by installing everything we need. The instructions will be provided for Windows users. However, worth mentioning is that the coding aspect should be similar on all operating systems. See you then,
