I've got years of Java and I've worked with various UI technologies, but I haven't spend much time with Angular  - and I need to rectify this. I've been busy in the DevOps world, but don't want to get too far away from application code.  Is this book a decent place for me to jump in, or would it be a better second read after spending some time with an Angular and Typescript book (or site).

Thanks
David

Hi David,

The book is not about Angular, it's more of a software engineering book that shows how to leverage the type system of a programming language to write good code. While the code examples are TypeScript, it is not tied to that particular language either and should benefit developers who use other languages like Java, C# etc.

If you planning on digging in to the Angular framework, in addition to this book, I recommend you spend some time studying Typescript and Reactive programming in-advance so that you can focus on the Angular concepts and not get hung-up on the language or RxJS.

There are many excellent books and online video courses that cover both these areas.
