Building a Hacker News Clone in AngularJS – Part 1


As part of the curriculum for the AngularJS portion of the Learn Verified Full Stack Web Developer Course, students build a Hacker News Clone. In this project, we use the Hacker News API to reconstruct the top stories page at Hacker News.

At this point, we’ve already completed nearly the entire course, which I’ve been working on part time for the past 8 months, so we’re pretty far in. Of the 600+ lessons I’ve completed, 110 of them are related to AngularJS. We’ve already covered a lot of the concepts that we’ll be tackling when building this project, but up until this point we’ve been working on them one small piece at a time. In the next few posts, I’ll be walking you through my progress through the project.
