In this chapter, I explain the process of starting a new Angular project and creating an application in detail. I explain the purpose of every software package, every configuration file, and every code file that is created. The result is a simple Angular application that, admittedly, does little. However, by the end of the chapter, you will understand how the parts of a project fit together and have a foundation on which to apply the more advanced features that are described in the chapters that follow. Table 11-1 summarizes the chapter.
