Having worked with Angular since mid-2017, I have collected many resources that I have found useful. I will keep this list up to date.
Updated Oct 21, 2021 – fixed broken links.
- Angular.io Includes good tutorials, detailed documentation, and API references along with interactive code snippets. This should be the default destination for Angular questions. Note: There are multiple versions of the “Tour of Heroes” tutorial demonstrating different concepts.
- Angular.io Resources The official and hopefully maintained list of resources from the Angular team.
- John Papa style guide The de facto style guide for Angular has been officially adopted by the Angular team and is now hosted on the official website. It is highly opinionated, but makes good cases for its suggestions. I follow most of it and do not disagree strongly with any of its suggestions.
- Netanel Basal Another skilled Angular developer with useful tutorials and deep dive articles.
- Angular University Has multiple tutorials and deep dives for all things Angular.
- inDepth.dev community Formerly Angular In Depth. Covers RxJS, NgRX and Angular in depth – has articles explaining how and why Angular is architected.
- Todd Motto A Google Developer Expert who writes detailed articles explaining Angular functionality and convention. His writing and explanation style differ sufficiently from the official documentation that it is a good supplemental resource.
- Strong Brew Technical high level articles for Angular, RxJS, and coding practices.
- Angular Dependency Injection Infographic A visual explanation of how Dependency Injection works (and used to work) in Angular, and the different strategies available.
