I haven't taken a look at Angular since attending a conference talk by Kent C. Dodds about upgrading from Angular v.1 to v.2. It seemed super neat, but I had my head turned by Tom Dale's talk about Ember js and the performance benchmarks that they had recently achieved.
So, this weekend I took a little time to work my way the Tour of Heros tutorial available at angular.io. This tutorial requires the Angular CLI and I also setup a continuous deployment workflow through netlify. All together the tutorial covered the fundamentals of creating components, routes, and services to make a fun little app. This was also my first experience using TypeScript. It was a frictionless learning experience. I'm excited to take this further and build my own apps using the same setup in the near future.
