#1 in The Best Online Courses for Learning Angular in 2024

The courses in the Pluralsight path are some of the most popular on their platform, and it’s clear why. Pluralsight courses are highly curated and polished, and their roster of Angular authors is the strongest around.

Pluralsight courses are concise and self-contained, focused on a particular topic within Angular. This is helpful, as an expert can focus the scope of the course to just what they need to cover. Pluralsight also produces courses at a consistently high level, following a similar format, which helps minimize distractions you sometimes find in other courses (like fluctuations in audio).

One of the best features of Pluralsight’s courses are the unifying scenario, where the examples and demonstrations all relate to a fictitious company. This way, you’re learning how Angular works in the real world rather than how to build a toy application.

Additionally, with your Pluralsight subscription, you can measure your skills with an in-depth assessment. You’ll be able to see your level of proficiency and how your assessment score ranks against others who have taken the assessment.

Pluralsight counts many enterprise organizations as customers, so this learning path (and their broader library) includes several courses that cover working with larger code bases and scaling Angular applications. So if you're planning to use Angular professionally, you'll benefit tremendously from their range of courses.

Before You Buy

The Angular Path includes an interactive course, called a Code Lab. This is an interesting course, where you’re guided step by step through coding specific features for an application in the browser. But we found the tasks covered in this lab fairly simple, and the interface super slow and clunky. If you’ve coded along with the other courses, you’ll already know how to do many of the things covered in this Code Lab, and you can skip it.

Why You Should Trust Us

Our course reviews are conducted by a team of technical professionals, course developers, and lifelong learners.

The lead of this project, Brian Green, has worked in developer education since 2009. He built the content development teams at Pluralsight and Udacity, implementing quality standards and tutorials to improve course quality and working with hundreds of authors to create courseware. Most recently, he built the product team at App Academy. As of writing, he estimates he has spent nearly a year of his life taking or reviewing online courses, on topics ranging from Web Development, Networking, Server Administration, DevOps, Cybersecurity, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.

How We Tested

Evaluation Criteria

We reviewed this course using the following criteria:

  1. Outcomes: The course needs to cover the essentials for someone to start working with Angular in a professional capacity or on a professional-grade project. That means covering the right topics and not going beyond the scope of the course objectives.
  2. Learning Features: Real skill development happens with fingers on keys, particularly for learners moving from novice level. We looked for courses with more than just videos; exercises and projects were essential.
  3. Production Quality: The course should include polished and professional course materials. In 2024, the table stakes of even an average course are professional video production, uniform sound levels and noise-free audio, and course materials that are free of typos. Videos should also be captioned and transcribed.
  4. Real World Application: A great course teaches you enough to work on a production application. We looked for examples and best practices from professional experience, not just basic examples of how something works on a toy application.
  5. Support and Community: Learning is better together! We promote courses with thriving communities and rapid, helpful support for learners, and tend to rate courses lower if they lack community or if the community isn't valuable.
