What is Angular?

AngularJS is a JavaScript framework for dynamic web apps, that addresses the challenges encountered when developing single-page applications. AngularJS tackles the problem of building dynamic web apps, by allowing the developer to extend the functionality of HTML and enabling new constructs to be created by using directives.

HTML is a great declarative language for static documents. However, it isn’t compatible for creating applications and often leaves web developers with the exercise of trying to find a way to trick the browser into being application compatible. AngularJS is what HTML would have been, had it been designed for applications.

Since it is a framework, it uses code templates and specific commands make changes, such as filters and data-binding within HTML pages. AngularJS is distributed as a JavaScript file and can be added to an HTML page with a <script> tag.

What is Angular 4?

There are several different versions of Angular, the latest being the 4th version of Angular, which was released in March 2017. Angular 4 includes some major improvements and additional functionality from previous versions.

Some of the changes Angular 4 features include:

·      Engine improvements – making Angular smaller and faster

·      Animations now have their own package

·      Improved *ngIf and *ngFor

·      Angular Universal – server-side rendering enabled

·      TypeScript 2.1 and 2.2 compatibility

·      Source maps for templates

·      Several template improvements

Why should I undergo Angular 4 training?

Being trained in Angular 4 web development will not only make your resume stand out, but will teach you how to use Angular 4 to build sophisticated applications.

Angular 4 training will teach participants how to build, manage and deploy scalable web applications, including TypeScript concepts and unit testing of developed applications.

Upon completion, participants will have the skills needed to design, build and test single page applications, across an array of mobile and desktop platforms. Such applications will allow businesses to achieve better return on investment, due to lesser development and maintenance cost, and faster accessibility.

What will I learn from Angular 4 training?

·      Fully understand the architecture behind an Angular 4 application and how to use it.

·      Gain an in-depth understanding of the concepts behind an Angular application, its architecture and capabilities.

·      Understand how Angular is different than traditional web development frameworks.

·      Learn how to create single-page applications and develop an application from scratch using Angular 4.

·      Code using new ES6 and TypeScript language features.

·      Discover Angular coding and architecture best practices.

·      Understand and use Angular forms, observables, dependency injection, and routing.

·      Retrieve, update, and delete data using Angular’s http service.

·      Unit test all the parts of an Angular application including modules, components, services, and pipes.

·      Upgrade an existing application from AngularJS to Angular 4.

·      Create, build, and deploy an Angular (Angular 4) application using the Angular CLI.

·      Develop dynamic model-driven forms that are easier to unit test.

NUS Tech Students Interested in Amateur Radio? Here’s the hardware basics…

Most of the articles that I have submitted to BizTech will be on software and intangible technology, so I’ve decided to share some knowledge on hardware and one of my biggest hobbies – amateur radio. Over the last few years, the prevalence of amateur radio has seen unprecedented growth on the international stage. Since its advent, radio has engaged several million operators from all over the world. However, radio has changes enormously since its inception. DX radio is still used widely and requires the use of basic equipment in order to both transmit and receive radio signals. The main objective remains the same.

Amateur radio can be described as a global link, connecting people across the globe and enabling operators to maintain contact with fellow enthusiasts, as well as establish contact with astronauts in space. All that is required to participate in amateur radio is the necessary equipment and a transmission licence.

Many beginner radio operator harbour confusion and require many questions to be answered in order to effectively transmit and receive radio broadcasts. These questions include; what DX radio station must be purchased?, What will the cost be?, Where can the necessary equipment be sourced?. There has been a great deal of change since the first transatlantic contact was made.

Basic radio stations have several basic components in common. These include; a transmitter, the receiver, as well as the antenna. It is difficult to imagine a world without this technology. The situation is the same with ham radio. There are many different modern features and tools. It must be noted that, in terms of DX, simple is usually best.

The Basic Radio Components

Every DX station operates on exactly the same basic principles. The radio allow operators to send and receive signals. As a consequence, an operator requires something to be able to both transmit and receive a signal. The only other necessary consideration that an operator needs to make is which frequency and wave band to use.

The first component that an operator will require is a good receiver. A beginner could purchase a used receiver an still enjoy the same level of reliability as they could expect from a new receiver.

Another important component is the transmitter. It can be challenging to capture signals with varying frequencies and modes. An operator may come across a combined transmitter and receiver, however they are not as effect as using a separate transmitter and receive in combination.

The final important component is the antenna. Once an operator has sourced an antenna, they will have all of the basic components. An operator who has a limited budget may purchased used components and still enjoy a reasonable level of reliability.

What Is Project Management Training?

Project Management Training (PMP) certification, or project management professional certification, is often regarded as the highest level of project management certification offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). This certification is highly demanded by leading organizations worldwide. In other words, PMP can open doors that would perhaps otherwise be closed to you.

This certification provides you with a fantastic stepping stone in your career. Looking for appreciation and visibility within your organization? This is the course for you.

Earn more money, have better job prospects and be respected and admired by your peers. Who doesn’t want that?

How Do I Pass The Exam?

The examination to pass this course can be difficult, and requires fully comprehensive preparation. This is not an exam that you can just walk your way through. To give yourself the best chance of passing it is advised you complete a project management training course, in order to best prepare yourself. Not only will you be provided with the information you need to pass the course, you will also benefit from the boosted confidence in knowing you are the most equipped you can be.

What Course Should I Choose?

Just like any other course, be sure the agenda covers everything you need to learn in order to ace the PMP exam. Look for a course with a mock exam, or exam questions towards the end. This will help you familiarize yourself with the examination, so there are no nasty surprises when the big day comes. Ensure you match the entry requirements before you make any payment.

As a working professional, it may be beneficial to complete the course online, which will allow you to continue earning whilst you study for the big exam. This will alleviate a huge amount of pressure, knowing you can work at your own pace and your earnings do not have to suffer whilst you’re preparing for the exam. The idea of an exam can be extremely stressful to some people, by completing an online preparation course, you will be minimizing the amount of stress you are exposed to.

To summarize, the PMP certification can enhance your earning potential, and give you the upper hand in an extremely competitive job market. It is the gold standard, the highest level of certification, therefore it is not easy to pass. To expect to pass it by reading a few books can be a risky move. An online preparation course can help massively by providing you with the knowledge and materials required to pass. Remember, failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
