WHAT IS ANGULAR?

Angular is the second-most popular JavaScript framework in use today. As AngularJS’s successor, this framework has gained popularity for software engineers who are approaching JavaScript from the Java and C# languages. As opposed to React, Angular showcases an integral framework with internal data fetching, state management and development language. 

It is commonly used as an open-source front-end development tool, suited to transform standard HTML content into dynamic web pages. It was first distributed by Google in 2010 and it is still updated continuously. On February 2019, it’s most recent version, Angular 7, was launched and by 2020 it is anticipated to contend against React.js for popularity. 

The newest version brings about several interesting features. The latest TypeScript software has a more speedy app performance, an intuitive user interface, and improved drag and drop interface. Also, developers have admired the framework’s new CLI prompts, which aid programmers to recognize errors and solve them in advance.

ANGULAR VS REACT

Is a JavaScript framework written in TypeScript. It was developed and is maintained by Google, and used by Google Adwords.

For this framework you’ll need to learn directives, modules, and decorators, amongst other elements. There are more advanced ones such as change detection, zones, AoT compilation, and Rx.js.

To handle state, Redux may not be necessary.

Is a JavaScript library developed and maintained by Facebook. Released in March 2013, it is defined as “a JavaScript library for building user interfaces”.

React’s learning curve starts with JSX but it  also requires for the user to learn how to code components, manage internal state, and use props for configuration.

For state management, Redux is frequently used.

WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS CAN BE DEVELOPED USING ANGULAR?

At BairesDev, we have developed several projects using Angular. Here are some of them:

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN ANGULAR DEVELOPMENT OUTSOURCING COMPANY

null

High English Proficiency

High English Proficiency

According to the EF English Proficiency Index, some Latin American countries have overtaken India and China in language proficiency and all of them are climbing in English level, with Argentina at the region’s top. Your company can take advantage of bilingual developers and project managers to establish clear feedback cycles.

null

Time Difference

Time Difference

Outsourcing hubs like India have a large time difference with North America, making it difficult to work on real-time projects. In Latin America, there is just a small 1-3 hours difference (ET), so briefings and project management are much faster and efficient.

IT Talent Hubspot

IT Talent Hubspot

Stack Overflow provides statistics showing that there are more skilled programmers from Peru (24k), Colombia (21k), Chile (18k), Argentina (16k), and Brazil (14k) compared to other global IT hotspots like India (13k) and China (13k).

null

Global Proximity

Global Proximity

A partner with offices located across Latin American countries, having face-to-face visits with your software development team becomes a possibility.

FUTURE RELEASES

One of the highlights is the expected release of Ivy, a backwards compatible, completely new render engine based on the incremental DOM architecture. Ivy only includes the parts of Angular source code that are useful for the application.

Google promised to deliver twice-a-year upgrades.
