To experiment with Ionic 2 (and Angular 2), I created a new version of the Employee Directory application I wrote when I first explored Ionic almost two years ago.

If you are already familiar with ECMAScript 6 you’ll immediately feel comfortable with the new constructs (classes, modules, etc) your Ionic 2 project is built with. If you are new to ES6, now is probably a good time to dive into it. Check out my ECMAScript 6 tutorial if you are looking for a place to start.
A lot has changed in Angular 2 and Ionic 2. But once you identify the basic building blocks, and find your way to controllers and templates, you’ll find yourself back in familiar territory. Like they did with Angular v1, the Ionic team is doing a great job at removing the hurdles and providing a solid project structure to start with.
The source code for the application is available in this repository. on GitHub.
