Why You Need An Angular Developer On Your Project
Hello world! In the era of digital transformation, the question is no longer whether to do or not to do; no one needs to be convinced that IT transformations are vital.
More often, entrepreneurs think about something else: how to implement the project? To entrust development to internal specialists or to hire an Angular developer?
Today, customers of IT services are already realizing the main advantages of outsourcing – access to advanced development technologies, concentration on their own business tasks and, of course, the speed of project implementation.
In our world, time is precious. Any glitch or mistake is a waste of time that can give a head start to competitors. The market wins the one who is the first to offer customers a new service or a convenient application. And in this situation, a fresh, clean look from a third-party developer can be of invaluable service.
In this article you will read why it is so important to hire an Angular developer for a successful project and how to do it. Read on, it will be interesting!
For example, Ionic, a powerful cross-platform mobile app development platform, is built on Angular. The Angular team at Google has released several versions of the framework since 2009.
AngularJS, the first version, was designed for building dynamic single page applications. Usually, the term “Angular” is applied to Angular 2 and all subsequent versions. Many well-known web applications, including Eat24, Radio.com, Udacity, Freelancer, Crunchbase, NBA.com, Google Express, and others, are based on Angular.
With so many Angular-backed products and strong Google backing, it’s clear that the framework’s popularity won’t diminish. The popularity of the framework is due to several important aspects at once, the main one of which is convenience for the developer.
Angular applications are written relatively quickly, the code has a clear structure, and even third-party programmers can understand it relatively easily. The Angular family of frameworks opens up great opportunities and allows developers to create multifunctional programs for several platforms.
It is believed that this framework has a low threshold of entry, but programmers should understand TypeScript, Angular CLI, npm to install the framework, task runners, and understand Augury’s debugging tools. This framework is chosen for creating complex applications, while simple apps and programs of medium complexity can be created using ordinary JS.
Developing applications in Angular has many features that a developer must know and perfectly understand all the functionality and tools of the framework.
With the proper skill level, a programmer using this framework can quickly create diverse applications of various levels of complexity for any platform and for any task.
Some customers choose not a single developer but a whole team to carry out their project. Understanding how many and what kind of people a project needs is formed at the time of completion of the pre-project analytics. When the scale of the work and the key tasks are known, it is easier to predict the number of future employees. The selection of the project team from the customer’s side usually meets the greatest difficulties. This process is complicated by the fact that the choice is almost always made only from the existing employees of the customer, which is quite natural, but limits the range of possible candidates.
Another unpleasant moment is the widespread unwillingness of the customer to allocate employees for the needs of the project completely. As a result, key people are engaged in combining project work with other responsibilities, which often leads to dire consequences.
What should be the composition of the team? Despite the fact that its size depends on the volume of tasks, in the classic version at the start we are talking about 4-6 participants. These are: Team Lead / Architect (often rolled into one); Front-end / back-end developer (often full stack); Tester (with regular updates); Technical support specialist (with frequent interaction with users). It is also helpful to enlist the support of contractors for rare small tasks.
When working in an unverified market and uncertain needs, it is best to start small to minimize risks and test the viability of the project. Then you can already think about expanding the composition of the IT team and a detailed distribution of roles.
Team Lead otherwise it can be called “project manager”. The coordinator from the customer is the center for approving operational decisions, in particular, on the subject area of the customer’s business.
This role requires an employee who is sufficiently competent in the subject and computer field with high performance. He must receive significant powers, including the initial signing of acceptance certificates for the stages of work, the prompt involvement of other specialists of the enterprise, the solution of current administrative and organizational issues. If such a person is found, it is a great success. In the future, replacing such an employee is extremely undesirable and can be very painful for the progress of the project, and at any stages of its implementation.
Technical IT staff. This category includes employees of the customer’s IT departments who perform technical and support work in the project team or in interaction with it: programmers, testers, teachers, operators, system administrators.
The developers play a significant role primarily in projects for the implementation of “boxed” products, where they are responsible for the main role in improving the functionality of the product to the requirements of the enterprise. This is a special kind of project in which the role of the executing team (software system supplier) is usually small. Testers perform an important function of verifying the functionality of the system (or its modules) prior to delivery to the customer.
All of these roles, despite their importance, do not imply key decisions during the project. In addition, usually their implementation is entrusted to a fairly large number of employees.
Accordingly, the risk of the absence or replacement of a specific employee for a project is often low. However, poor organization of these services in general should be avoided, otherwise unpleasant consequences can be much more serious. For this, at the start of the project, the regulations for the work of technical personnel in the project must be officially approved.
It is not enough to gather people, you need to ensure the efficiency of their work. Here are the criteria by which you can evaluate it:
Discipline: This is the fastest test for a project manager. The actions of employees must be coordinated, information must be transmitted quickly, without distortion. If one of the participants is constantly late in completing work, he can drag the entire team of IT specialists to the bottom. Take a closer look at him – if the conversations do not work, it makes sense to think about dismissing such an employee.
One goal: All participants must understand the purpose of the project and focus on one result. If everyone thinks only about their functional responsibilities and ambitions, then the work “who is in the forest, who for firewood”, “and things are still there” will sooner or later lead to a split of the IT project team.
One leader: Only one recognized team member should lead. “Pulling the blanket over yourself” by other participants leads to a mismatch of actions, conflicts, and an increase in emotional tension within the team. It is clear that in an unhealthy climate you should not expect a good result.
The responsibility of each employee: Everyone contributes to the project. Everyone should be responsible for their work, and not pass the blame onto the other. For this, a model is being developed for the distribution of areas of responsibility and team interaction.
Conditions for motivation: Types of motivation: salary increase, professional and personal growth, bonuses, career growth. It is impossible to achieve good results and high-quality work in principle without motivating employees.
If you are looking to hire talented Angular developers, you need to do a lot of research and preparation, from examining developer resumes and experiences to identifying the right requirements.
At the end, it’s important to understand that you need not only highly qualified people, but also a strong development team that can collaborate effectively and achieve the best results.
As they say “one head is good and two is better” that’s why the developer will be your right hand in the implementation of all plans!

By Adedapo Adesanya
The Osun state government has moved to launch a support desk for tech innovators and entrepreneurs in the state to access the recently launched $618 million fund by the federal government and the African Development Bank (AfDB).
Governor Ademola Adeleke, who directed the establishment of the fund, expressed the readiness of his government to tap into the opportunities in furtherance of the digital economy agenda of his administration.
The governor, whose position was recently affirmed by the Appeal Court, said his administration has created enabling environment for the Osun state tech ecosystem, citing the recent domestication of Nigeria’s Startup Act, the flag off of the state’s broadband fibre optic project, and the establishment of a Digital Advisory Board.
He said, “I am delighted to appreciate the African Development Bank, which has set up a $618 million fund to support the technology and creative sector in Nigeria. This is a great initiative spearheaded by Dr Akinwunmi Adesina, the Nigerian President of the African Development Bank, in partnership with our Federal Government, I would like to commend him for his visionary leadership and dedication to the development of our country.”
He added, “I am confident that this fund will go a long way in supporting innovation, job creation, and economic growth in our country.

NIMASA, NCC Collaborate to Create Submarine Cable Regulation in Nigeria
By Adedapo Adesanya
The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) are collaborating to develop a regulatory framework to provide operational guidelines for Submarine Cables and Pipeline Operators in Nigeria.
Submarine and cable operators in Nigeria have been notified of the soon-to-be-implemented regulatory guideline for submarine cables and pipelines in Nigeria, in line with the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
Speaking at a pre-audit meeting of both organs of government in Lagos on submarine cable regulation, the Director General of NIMASA, Mr Bashir Jamoh, noted that the agency was committed to the Ease of Doing Business while implementing International Conventions which Nigeria has ratified and domesticated.
He noted that with Nigeria now a destination for global communication players, the time has come to prevent unregulated underwater cable laying, which might become hazardous to shipping.
According to him, “It is worthy to note that marine cable laying has been ongoing for over two decades in Nigerian waters. Our focus is to ensure the safety of navigation of shipping in Nigerian waters with all these underwater cables being laid.”
“NIMASA is developing the guidelines to regulate submarine cable operators in line with the provisions of UNCLOS; which we have ratified, and NIMASA will be the agency responsible for its implementation.
“We do not just implement laws; we consult. Where the responsibility of an Agency stops, that is where the responsibilities of another agency start. Collaboration is a key component of ease of doing business in the best interest of the country, and we will work closely with the NCC to achieve this,” he said.
On his part, the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Mr Umar Garba Danbatta, who was represented by the Director, Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement, Mr Efosa Idehen, noted that the stakeholders’ dialogue strategy adopted by NIMASA in developing the guidelines would ensure a win-win situation urging NIMASA management to include the Ministry of Justice, a request NIMASA DG immediately granted.
Also speaking at the meeting was the Director General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Mr Dasuki Arabi, who commended NIMASA and NCC for adopting effective Inter-Agency collaboration to avert a potential challenge for the country in the future.
NIMASA and the NCC also agreed to identify and resolve areas of likely regulatory overlaps, ensuring a regulatory framework based on consultation to engender the attainment of Nigeria’s digital economy transformation.
How Data Protection Policy In Nigeria Is Evolving To Secure Customers
By Otori Emmanuel
Technology advancement has increased the value of data, and many businesses are willing to invest in it. These data are obtained from customers directly or indirectly. When data is directly gathered, customers are often asked for their consent, and they typically provide it. In contrast, information that is gained inadvertently may be gathered through tracking or linkages to sources that already have the consumers’ data. Businesses use this strategy to improve their products and for research purposes.
To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse of user’s personal information, data privacy and data protection policies are in effect. The right of people to decide how their personal information is gathered, utilized, and shared is referred to as data privacy. It involves making sure that people are informed about the information being collected on them, how it is being used, and with whom it is shared. Data protection policies, on the other hand, are protocols set up to safeguard private data against exploitation or unauthorized access. They require putting technical and organizational mechanisms in place to safeguard the privacy, usability, and authenticity of user data and also to prevent its loss, destruction, or alteration.
Data protection policies usually include instructions for the collection, processing, storage, and disposal of data. They also include safeguards for personal data security, such as encryption, access restrictions, and regular backups. Data privacy and protection regulations are crucial in the contemporary digital age, as personal data is captured, processed, and exchanged more frequently than at any time before.
User Data Protection in Nigeria
The Nigerian Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) was decreed in 2019 with the aim to ensure that individuals have control over their personal data and that it is processed fairly and legally. The NDPR mandates that businesses processing personal data get the individual’s consent before processing their information. Additionally, they must take the necessary security precautions to safeguard personal data against theft, loss, and unauthorized access.
Nigeria has established the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in addition to the NDPR to handle issues with data privacy and cybersecurity. The NITDA is in charge of enforcing the NDPR and ensuring that businesses abide by the data protection laws. Moreover, the NITDA has created frameworks and recommendations to offer firms advice on how to put in place reliable cybersecurity and data protection buffers. These rules address subjects like privacy notices, effect analyses of data protection, and breach reporting.
In accordance with the NDPR, businesses must acquire consent from people before collecting their personal data and have strong security measures in place to safeguard it. Businesses must appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) as part of the NDPR, who is responsible for ensuring that the law is upheld. Other laws in Nigeria, in addition to the NDPR, that deal with data protection are the Freedom of Information Act of 2011 and the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act of 2015. These laws strengthen the protection of personal information while also outlining the consequences of data protection laws infractions.
With a focus on safeguarding customer personal information and ensuring that businesses are held accountable for any violations by these laws, Nigeria’s data protection regulations are continuously improving.
