    n addition to routerLink, we are able to navigate from inside our class.

    We can use the Router that comes from @angular/router. Once we inject it into our class, we can use this.router.navigate(['/about', user.username]);

    import { Router } from '@angular/router';
    export class AboutUserComponent implements OnInit {
      user: User;
        private route: ActivatedRoute, 
        private service: UserService,
        private router: Router
      ) {}
      ngOnInit() {
        // grab the current username
        let username = this.route.snapshot.params['username'];
        this.service.getUser(username).then(user => this.user = user);
      goBack() {
