COMP 2909 - Angular and Vue.js Fundamentals

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

This hands-on course follows on from COMP 1850 and (COMP 2015 or COMP 2132) and is aimed at students who already understand how to build web pages with HMTL, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Angular is a popular JavaScript-based, open-source front-end application framework designed to address the challenges of developing modularized single-page applications. Vue.js is a newer open-source framework based on JavaScript that was designed for building user interfaces. Vue.js functions like Angular to rapidly modularize application development. Participants first learn Angular development fundamentals and then practice building components, modules, and services for data-driven, client-side web applications. Exercises also include: routing, asynchronous JSON transfer, and validation. These features are then implemented using Vue.js. Automated testing and redux architecture are also introduced using Angular. As well, there is a brief introduction to using Angular with the Apache Cordova framework for platform independent mobile development for Android and iOS. Web students may also want to complete COMP 2912 Node.js Fundamentals and COMP 2913 React and Modern JavaScript. Upon successful completion students will have experience using these rich JavaScript frameworks to develop data-driven and interactive single-page web applications for all mainstream browsers.
