Description

Do you want to learn the very popular programming language that powers the internet?

Are you tired of wasting your time and money on random youtube videos  or JavaScript courses that are either too simple, or too difficult to  follow?

Or are you struggling to deeply understand and apply JavaScript to real projects?

If your answer is a big YES... Then this is exactly the course you are looking for!

...

So what is the course about?

This is a truly complete JavaScript course, that goes beyond what other JavaScript courses out there teach you. 

I will take you from a complete JavaScript beginner to an advanced  developer.

Come with me on a journey with the goal of truly understanding the  JavaScript language. And I explain everything on the way with great  detail!

You will learn "why" something works in JavaScript, not just "how".  Because in the modern JavaScript world of today, you need more than just  knowing how something works. You need to debug code, you need to  understand code, you need to be able to think about code.

This course is different because it's not just about writing code,  it's also about how and why code works the way it does. Because it's the  perfect mix between theory and practice. Because it focuses on  small coding examples that lets you understand complex topics very easily.

So, by the end of the course, you will be a capable JavaScript  developer, able to write, understand and debug JavaScript code using all  the powerful features the language offers to us.

...

Here is exactly what we cover in this course:

• All the JavaScript and programming fundamentals: things like  variables, data types, boolean logic, if/else statements, loops,  functions, objects, arrays, and more.

• Everything you need to know in order to gain a deep understanding  of how JavaScript works behind the scenes: execution contexts, hoisting,  scoping, the 'this' keyword, and more.

• Complex JavaScript features such as function constructors,  prototypal inheritance, first-class functions, closures, the bind and  apply methods, and more.

• Learn how to organize and structure your code using modules and  functions, how to create data privacy and encapsulation, and why that's  so important.

• What's new in the most modern version of JavaScript: new features of ES6 / ES2015.

• Asynchronous JavaScript: the event loop, promises and async/await.

...

Let's now find out if this course is for you. It's a perfect fit if...

Student #1: You want to gain a deep understanding of the most popular programming language in the world: JavaScript.

Student #2: You  have taken other JavaScript courses but: 1) still don't really  understand JavaScript, or 2) still don't feel confident to code  real-world apps. This course is perfect for you!

Student #3: You want to get started with programming in general: JavaScript is a great language to learn how to code.

...

Akhil has been programming since he was  19 years old, and got into web sites and web application development at  24. After graduating with a Electronics degree from Staffordshire University because of his interest in software development and designing, Akhil has moved to software field as web application designer and architect, database  designer, and user interface designer. 

His experience has ranged across technologies such as HTML5, CSS3,  MVC, JavaScript, jQuery, VueJS, NodeJS, PHP,  Bootstrap, SQL, Hiawatha web server and more. 

He believes strongly that deeply understanding any topic  allows you to properly learn it and, even more importantly in a  real-world environment, quickly overcome problems. 

He also has a deep interest in human nature and  behavior, and how that impacts human-computer interaction. This interest  translated into extending his career into user experience design and  usability research. 

Another link  in the chain is his 8 months of experience in public speaking and  teaching, both in front of small groups and as a one-on-one private  instructor. 

Putting all these  pieces together, he has spent his career listening to a client need,  designing a database and software to meet that need, building it,  testing it, teaching others how to use it, then improving user  experience by watching people actually use it and adjusting accordingly.   

Akhil loves teaching every  aspect of what he does, and even more loves teaching in a way that  imparts understanding, as opposed to just examples intended to be  parroted. He loves that moment when a student 'gets it', and that's what  he wants for you when you take one of his courses. 

He has found that those that learn purely by example, and  not by understanding, end up much more limited than they need to be. 

He firmly believes that anyone can learn anything only if you have real interest or necessity to learn it. Including you. 

"It is my pleasure and privilege to teach you. I hope you'll learn things that you didn't know before and feel confident that you can accomplish your goals.

Thank you!" - Akhil Dakur
