What is Angular?

Angular is an open-source platform that is a complete rewrite of its predecessor AngularJS. It is based on TypeScript and used for front-end web application development. Angular offers fast performance, cross platform deployment and a large assortment of tools like Angular CLI and many existing components.


NgVikings is the yearly main Angular event in the Nordics, organized by a non-profit organization comprised of local Angular groups. The first conference was held last year in Copenhagen, followed by this year’s event in the Aalto University campus in Otaniemi, Espoo. The event gathers an international crowd with 400 participants and speakers from the Angular core team as well as other experts in the field. In addition to presentations, there are workshops around different Angular topics.
