I’m currently interested in learning about TypeScript and Angular 2, so I’m looking around for useful learning resources about TypeScript and Angular 2 development. Since I have a Pluralsight subscription, Pluralsight tends to be the first place I visit in order to find video courses about whatever it is that I’m interested in learning about. Anyway, I’ve browsed through Pluralsight, and I decided to write up what I’ve found, which might be useful if you’re also interested in getting started with Angular 2 and TypeScript.
Angular 2: Getting Started [Video course]
This is a new course (April 1st 2016) by Deborah Kurata, that I’m probably going to watch. The course is targeted at people who are interested in Angular 2 whether they’re new to Angular or not. The course description mentions building clean components with “strongly-typed code” so I’m guessing that there’s some TypeScript in that course, though it’s obviously primarily targeted at getting started with Angular 2.
The course is available here at Pluralsight.
Play by Play: Angular with Typescript with John Papa and Christopher Martin
This is yet another “play by play” course from John Papa that I’ve watched recently. The course is quite new, and it was released April 1st 2016. If you’re interested in migrating an old Angular application from ECMAScript 5 to TypeScript, then this play by play can give you some knowledge about how it can be done. This course isn’t a good introduction to Angular and TypeScript, and it’s better to watch this after you’ve learned about TypeScript and Angular through watching some introductory courses. When you’re more comfortable with TypeScript and Angular, then this course is certainly worth watching, especially if you have older Angular 1 applications that you have to migrate.
This play by play course is available here.
Angular with TypeScript [Video course]
This course by Deborah Kurata seems like a perfect candidate for learning TypeScript and Angular. It was released in August 2015, and I’m not quite sure whether it’s using Angular 2 or 1. But still, it sounds like an interesting course indeed.
You’ll find the course here.
TypeScript Fundamentals [Video course]
This course is focused solely on TypeScript, and not Angular 2. This course was created by Dan Wahlin and John Papa, and I’m not sure when it was initially released, but it was updated as recently as the 25th of March, 2016. I haven’t watched the course yet, but it seems like a good candidate for getting started with TypeScript.
Sounds interesting? The course’s page is here.

“Play by Play: Angular 2 Quick Start with John Papa and Ward Bell” [Video course]
Another play by play by John Papa, and this one is also starring Ward Bell. This course shows how to get started with Angular 2 and TypeScript quickly, though it’s certainly not an in-depth course. I liked it, and it’s a quick watch so take a look at that one.
