Code explanation:

This is a simple Html code that you are used to and have been practicing for long so no need to explain that. So we have to similar div that have the same code one heading (H2) and one simple element {{12+5}} that is treated as plain text in html. Whereas in the second div we have define the ng-app directive that defines that the code is angular code which treats {{12+5}} as an expression which is evaluated as 17 in the angular code.

Angular as a popular development solution

Thus, aimed to ease the front-end development processes, as a simple HTML code, Angular is incredibly useful for developers to build up one-page web-applications. As a solid platform for web-applications development, Angular is highly helpful for programmers, as it allows them to unfold the development tasks that are regularly challenging the field professionals.

Even more, Angular provides the application to be used both for smartphones and the web, so it is mobile and web-friendly. For the coders the process of transferring a code written in JavaScript (a top programming language) into a dynamic content with Angular is uncomplicated and understandable.

These all can provide enough information exchange and professional expertise to keep improvement processes within the technology through the community. 

Besides, it gives the programmers an opportunity to follow a well-paid career path and engage themselves in the web-application development job market. You can also get acquainted with the current market trends research of Angular developer salary range provided by Devox Software.
