Code Angular Programmierung LaptopAngular might be the best known and most powerful open-source frontend framework for the creation of complex web applications. For some time, the web framework has been seriously hyped by developers and is considered a must-have skill when it comes to sustainable web technologies. The good thing about it: Angular has only just started to unfold its possibilities! Since the development of the first version, AngularJS, in 2009 by internet giant Google, the framework has evolved significantly from version to version. Read here why it’s worth taking a closer look at Angular.

Why Angular, when JavaScript and HTML are also available?

With the client-side standard framework, web applications such as mobile apps (Ionic framework) and complex local applications (Electron framework) can be written. The framework aims at a component-based architecture and sets a high value on predefined structures and quality. While programming languages such as JavaScript and HTML are fully sufficient for the creation of simple websites, the strength of Angular lies primarily in comprehensive enterprise applications. In the field of insurance, this could, for instance, be broker or customer portals. Depending on the complexity of the envisaged project, web development can be carried out using multipage application (MPA) or standard SPA framework (single-page application). Realisation of the web application on the basis of a single HTML page (SPA) has the great advantage that dynamic page content can be loaded much more quickly. The increased performance ensures optimised user experience, while reducing server load at the same time.

Angular: an investment in the future of web development

Even if at the moment the angular ecosystem is still immature and the learning curve steep it will pay off to establish internal Angular know-how. For your organisation and your developers. With Angular you invest in the future of framework-based web development. Against the backdrop of performance and UX design, you can be sure that web development with Angular will be state-of-the-art in five to ten years’ time. Until then, the number of developers with Angular know-how in the market will continue to grow. Thanks to Angular, your IT team will become true allround developers that you can deploy flexibly as web, app, and standalone software developers in your organisation. On the basis of this positive forecast, it is only a matter of time before you make the strategic decision to enter the SPA world with Angular.

An easy approach to Angular

One thing is certain: acquiring Angular skills on your own through self-study is definitely a tedious task.
