If you have been following the development efforts of the Angular2 project, you have witnessed certain highs and lows - but it has been a fun ride. The latest version is only a Release Candidate and the team is getting closer to the final release. I’m really looking forward to that! I wanted to take a moment to highlight (IMO) one of the key services of Angular2, the http service. In AngularJs 1 the ng.IHttpService (aka, $http) was based on promises and deferrals.
