# Learning: Angular Material + ChartJS Quickstart
I have been learning Angular Material. I also wanted to play with some charts, so I'm using ng2-charts which is back-ended by chart.js. Since I have been designing more at work I can feel some of my programming experience getting rusty. Also, since I sometimes design using Angular Material components, I find it handy to understand how they all work together.
My primary goals for this experiment were to put together an Angular Material webpage that displayed some data on a few charts. Both charts use a service to supply the data, which right now is faked out in the service. The first is a simple static calculation of compound interest. The second is a randomly updating series which changes every five seconds.

Once I got these examples running locally I decided I would like to share them. I found a straightforward article (opens new window) about publishing to Google's Firebase (opens new window). Within fifteen minutes my examples were published. The other day, I did three releases.
