I haven't used JavaScript since 2010, and sparingly at that. I haven't touched Angular yet at all. I'm more of a Java/Android/Rails kinda guy.

Will I get any use out of this book if I'm starting out with zero experience in typescript/angular?

Also how does the book teach dependency injection? I'm very interested in learning DI.

I'd also like to know if the book centers around building an application, kind of like how the Rails tutorial books do it.

Thanks folks!
Marc

Yes, this book doesn't require the knowledge of AngularJS.  If you're the beginner, you should start with reading Appendices A and B that cover the new syntax of ECMAScript 6 and TypeScript.

TypeScript is easier to learn for Java devs than JavaScript.

Dependency Injection is the fabric of Angular 2 and the book covers it in a separate chapter, plus all code samples use it throughout the book.

Getting started with a new project is simplified - the tool called Angular CLI generates and pre-configures it for you.

Same boat as you Marc, except I am a Visual Studio c#/vb kind of gal. I have just taken over a project that uses typescript/angular and need to learn it. Always open to advice and suggestions.

Thanks,

So when compared to Rails for example, how quick would it be to create say, a blog?
