  • The Angular documentation also provides a style guide that teams can use as a starting point to help drive consistency across projects.
  • Finally, Angular provides a CLI tool that can be used to create initial projects, add different features into an application (components, services, etc.), run tests, perform builds, lint code, and more.
  • The bottom line is that the consistency found in Angular components, services, pipes, directives and more allows a team to swim with the current rather than feeling like they’re always swimming upstream against the current.
  • Had the Angular team NOT made that jump we’d be calling Angular the “Caveman Framework” in no time at all since it wouldn’t be leveraging the latest and greatest features that can help with performance, consistency, productivity, maintainability and overall development.
  • I don’t have a crystal ball (if anyone has one I’d be interested in borrowing it), but I do know that the Angular team is very aware of how framework changes affect enterprise projects (Angular is used a lot inside of Google).

Over the past few months, I’ve been asked the same general question about Angular multiple times in onsite training classes, while helping customers with their architecture, or when talking with company leaders about the direction web technologies are heading. Here’s the general question:

Over the past few months, I’ve been asked the same general question about Angular multiple times in onsite training classes, while helping customers with their architecture, or when talking with company leaders about the direction web technologies are heading. Here’s the general question:

“What are the key benefits that Angular and TypeScript can offer our development teams?”

It’s a great question and one that should be asked before jumping into any new technology or framework. Most of the people asking are technology managers or directors interested in understanding the benefits that Angular can offer their teams (both technical and non-technical). They’re concerned about application maintenance, developer productivity, handling change requests, the longevity of the framework, the pace of technology, and more.

After hearing that general question over and over I decided it was time to put together a post that outlines my top 5 reasons for using Angular and TypeScript. There are certainly MANY others I could list, but here are my top 5 benefits:

Before continuing I do want to mention that while I do work with Angular a lot (and enjoy it), I’m not a “one framework” type of guy. Why? Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s that one size never fits all. When someone suggests that one technology or framework is *always* the best option I like to say, “Walk into a shoe store and say that you want to try on a pair of shoes….
