I’ve chosen Angular 2 as it’s relatively new and very few people have written production apps on this platform. Also, I’ve been working with Angular 2 for over a year now (since it’s early beta) and don’t have as much experience with React at this point.
The reference links in this chapter are more for introducing readers to the modern front-end stack rather than any particular technology. They do have a lot of references to React as React has been around for a while, while Angular 2 is relatively new. As we move along in the series, we’ll focus more on Angular 2.
