Dr. Christopher Dayagdag says
“ We don’t sell websites, we create websites that SELL.”
Is there any difference between creating websites and creating websites that sell?
Yes! A huge one!
Because creating a website that cannot sell means it is not impressive or effective enough to draw potential customers to itself.
So, what do you need to design a website that can actually sell?
What are those potential features of the website that enable it to sell?
Is it its design, appearance, user-interface, chatbot, or animation?
All the factors are considered to make a website potent enough to sell.
And what do you need to make the website powerful?
A strong framework.
Angular is a framework that is a leading framework that is designed for building creative, interactive, and powerful web applications. Angular was designed by a group of tech professionals who wanted to make web development “effortless”.
Did you know?
Angular is considered to be the most popular front-end development tool to date.
Every iteration of Angular is better than it’s the previous version, the latest version being Angular 8 which is feature-rich and makes web development a fun experience.
Let us now explore what Angular is, its features, and how you can learn Angular.
What is Angular?
Angular is an open-source, cross-platform, client-side framework that is designed for building web applications. It is based on TypeScript which comes with component architecture, dynamic loading, modularity, different expression syntax, which are just to name a few features.
It works on multiple platforms as mobile applications, desktop, and web applications.
Some potential businesses and organizations that widely use Angular are General Motors, The Guardian, PayPal, Sony, ING, Netflix, HBO, Nike, and of course Google.
Let us explore some of the most powerful features of Angular that make it one of the most favorite front end development tools for application developers.
Angular allows you to develop Progressive Web Application (PWA). Cross-platform refers to the fact that Angular allows you to develop web applications across mobile, desktop, and web.
- Speed and Performance
- MVC architecture
With MVC (Model View Controller) architecture, you can split your application and connect them by coding for it.
- Two-way Data Binding
The two-way data binding system is the most important feature of Angular. It saves your time by allowing you to make the changes in the model and synchronizing it automatically.
- Dependency Injection
You can ask for any line of code and it delivers to you eventually saving the time of web development.
Angular allows you to define custom HTML tags and serve them as custom widgets with the help of directives.
- Requires Less Coding
You need less coding with Angular because it doesn’t require you to write different codes to link MVC layers, and also you don’t require code for viewing the application manually.
Other features of Angular include TypeScript, Angular CLI(Command Line Interface), Component Development Kit(CDK), Virtual Scrolling.
Responsibilities of an Angular Developer
- To deliver a complete and working front-end application.
- To make sure that the application across different platforms like mobile and desktop perform the way it is expected to do so.

In addition, you are required to have significant experience with RESTful API integration. It can be advantageous to have the knowledge of adjacent technologies as in Node and Webpack. If you can observe small mistakes and pick on mistakes quickly, you can write high-quality codes. Good communication skills and teamwork skills are crucial soft skills you need to acquire in order to become a successful Angular Developer.
