Going through the tutorials was very straight forward and easy. I enjoyed them, they explained the basics very well.
Moving past that I had some difficultly figuring out how the different pieces fit together and which technologies to use.
My process of learning was that I wanted to decide on IDE first. I have lots of experience with Visual Studio .NET, so I looked at that, but it felt like it was really not written for this type of web dev. It could do it once you add enough third party tools, but it seemed clunky to me. Then I looked at VS Code, and it was the same for me as a beginner. It could do it all very well, but you have to know exactly what you want in order to get the different parts to work together (typescript, NPM, Angular, linters, intellisense, etc). Looked at Brackets, same thing as VS Code. I looked at whether Dreamweaver supports Angular, but it doesn't. I finally settled on WebStorm and decided it was worth the $59 per year for everything it gave me. It has built in lots of tools and functionality and felt very familiar easy to use.
