You may have already invested a lot of time and effort into building an AngularJS 1.x app, and haven't cut your teeth into migrating to Angular and TypeScript. With the Angular Upgrade library, we can bootstrap our Angular app as an Angular + AngularJS Hybrid app, and allow ourselves to migrate over time fully to Angular. The advantage of migrating is once converted to Angular + TypeScript, you will more easily be able to consume newer versions of Angular and TypeScript on regular intervals as well as take advantage of the newest framework and language benefits. In this session we will take a look at an AngularJS application and see the steps involved in migrating our application to the current version of TypeScript using Angular.

You will learn:

  • About the various approaches and trade-offs of how to navigate an AngularJS to Angular migration
  • How to bootstrap an application as a hybrid Angular / AngularJS application
  • How to migrate parts of the AngularJS application iteratively to Angular in the application, allowing the conversion to take place over time as needed
