We understand the move from AngularJS 1.x to Angular 2 can be a challenging, uphill journey. That’s why our own Todd Motto (@toddmotto) has created the ngMigrate website.
Todd is passionate about helping developers make the move from AngularJS 1.x to Angular 2. That passion fueled him to create ngMigrate, with the mission to provide as much information as possible to help you leverage and convert your Angular 1.x knowledge over to Angular 2. We’re also encouraging the Angular community to jump onboard and contribute content as well. Todd and other contributors have been busy putting together educational guides to help you make the transition.
Now that you’re on your way to learning Angular 2 you’re going to want to check out Kendo UI for Angular 2, which has been designed specifically for Angular 2. Written in TypeScript, built as native jQuery-free UI components and distributed as NPM packages, Kendo UI for Angular 2 makes integrating UI components into ng2 a piece of cake for developers.
