Introduction to Angular
What is Angular?
Angular, developed by Google, is an open-source software engineering platform used for building user interfaces (front-end). It was developed by google developers named Misko Hevery and Adam Abrons. This framework is currently known as AngularJS and it’s first official release dates back to 2010.
AngularJS: With its first release, it’s main benefit was that it would let developers turn HTML-based documents into dynamic content. Before AngularJs came into existence, HTML and web markup languages were usually static. This means users couldn’t actively interact with HTML pages’ interfaces as the ways to build dynamic SPAs were really complex at that time.
Angular 2+: Google released Angular2 in September 2016. In this release, the Angular framework was completely re-written by the same development team to match the modern requirements of the web. This gave developers a tough time as migrating to Angular2 required too many modifications due to different syntax.
Angular versions history: Angular 2-8:
The Angular community is basically split into two terminologies for angular: AngularJS and Angular. Angular framework includes versions from 2 to the most recent one – Angular 8. The latest was released in May 2019(version-8) while version 9 is planned for October 2019. Let’s have a brief walkthrough about all the versions of angular.
Angular2 came with numerous changes to the initial framework, as it was written in Typescript, it had a new compiler and had support for mobile also. The architecture style in this release was component-based and had features like application size reduction and some great syntax changes.
Angular saw major updates in the Angular router, which was already updated to the third version. Due to this reason, Angular3 was skipped and Angular4 was released as the router was also updated to the fourth version. In this release, Angular CLI 1.0.0 was introduced as a core element of the Angular project.
The release of the fifth and sixth versions was majorly about Optimizing Angular CLI and Angular compilers. Another change was improvements in workspaces with Angular CLI, to host multiple angular projects in different directories. Angular version 6 introduced Google’s Material Design SDK.
With Angular 7 again CLI saw improvements majorly with prompts. With the help of Prompts, CLI became more intuitive because it provided tips to explain the functions and purposes of elements. Applications received various improvements in the size of the code-base and overall performances. Besides, these some major CLI documentation updates also came.
Angular 8: the latest version of Angular
In the latest update, Angular 8, it was a synchronized released with Angular CLI 8 and Angular Material 8. Another improvement is differential loading. It is used to upload browser-specific bundles to support legacy browsers and upload content faster.

Benefits of Angular
Things to consider while choosing Angular for creating your application.
Building web applications to meet the needs of every user is not an easy task. The quality and complexity of applications and users’ expectations, always keep on increasing the quality and capabilities of the application. Angular exists to help developers to deliver applications that meet such user demands. Some of the reasons to choose angular are as follows:
Angular is backed up by Google, it’s open-source and also is community-driven: Google has a team of engineers, managers, and evangelists solely dedicated to bringing Angular to the rest of Google and the entire web community. With thousands of “internal customers” who rely on Angular inside Google, the Angular team uses those experiences to inform future development and receives large volumes of external contributions that together shape Angular’s future.

This phase is about analyzing the performance of the application of various stages and making notes on additional requirements. The analysis is very important to move forward to the next stage
Without the right planning, calculating project strengths and weaknesses, website development is meaningless. Planning stops a project in error and positively affects its progres
Once the analysis is completed, the phase of designing ends, which is basically building the architecture of the project. This step helps to overcome potential flaws by setting a standard and attempting to stick to it.
The actual work of developing a web application starts here with a data recording running in the background. After the web application is developed, the implementation phase comes, where the product undergoes a pilot study to see if it is working properly and the testing phase assesses the software for errors and document bugs if any.
Once the application development is completed and tested for all kinds of fallbacks and errors, the application is ready for deployment. All the access grants, along with the documentation are handed over to the client so that they can now utilize the tool for their business. Documentation helps understand the capabilities of the project.
Once the Web application passes through all the stages without any issues, it is to undergo a maintenance process wherein it will be maintained and upgraded from time to time to adapt to changes. Almost every web development company follows all the six steps, leading to a reputation that enjoys in the software market today.
