Angular works with Typescript which is a strongly language.By using TypeScript developers can develop object oriented applications in Angular 2.TypeScript allows developers to use language features such as classes and interfaces while developing Angular 2 applications.

Server side rendering

Server side rendering improves the speed of page rendering since the rendering happens on the server instead of client.So if the page is being rendered on a mobile device then server side rendering could have significant impact on the page load time.

Server side rendering improves the initial page load time on the server.
