What you'll learn

  • Gain practical knowledge of how to design and implement a complex single-page application based on the Redux design pattern

Description

This workshop is all about modern SPA architecture, focused on popular architectural design pattern Redux. Redux, an architectural pattern inspired by concepts from stateless web architecture patterns and functional programming paradigms, introduces a unidirectional data-flow and a predictable state container that scales. It’s a popular, mind-blowing alternative to the popular MVC pattern and solves a lot of issues in an elegant and clean way. Through a series of live code examples, Nir Kaufman walks you through a complete flow of a typical application, using Angular2 as the presentation layer.

Topics include:

  • The challenge of building modern SPAs
  • Redux overview and core principles
  • The Redux store API
  • Implementing common scenarios 
  • Scaling: Typical Redux project structure
  • Using Angular 2 as a component framework
  • Binding Redux to Angular 2
  • Resources and next steps
