Description

*** Learn real life JavaScript to help you get a job as a front end developer! ***

"[E]ven not being an English native, it is very easy to understand and I don't feel lost in what he's doing and explaining. I recommend." — Marlon K.

Interested in learning the #1 programming language in the world? 

Are you sick and tired of unhelpful articles, YouTube videos that don't teach you anything new and can't find a course that ACTUALLY teaches you JavaScript?

Or do you struggle with applying JavaScript to real world projects?

If you answered YES to any of those then this course is FOR YOU.

...

So what's in this course? 

This is a complete rewrite of the original JavaScript course I created years ago and goes beyond what all other JavaScript courses on Udemy are willing to teach you. 

I will take you from JavaScript novice to JavaScript ninja. You will learn how to write JavaScript, and you'll gain transferable skills that you can take to PHP, Node.js, Python and many more programming languages... all of this with one purpose: to give you real-world useful programming skills to help you get a job as a developer!

Join me as I go through programming fundamentals and how they're applied in JavaScript. I explain everything along the way (and in great detail), PLUS you get to practise what you've learned in 3 projects! 

Here you will learn more than "how" JavaScript works, but you'll also learn the "why" it works. Additionally, you'll learn about the softer side of being a developer, such as dealing with imposter syndrome. 

To achieve the goal of becoming a front end web developer, we'll go through the theory with real world practice and projects, followed by a final exam. Becoming a full developer means writing and knowing JavaScript, inside and out. That's what's going to happen in this course! 

This course isn't just about writing code. It's about becoming a real world developer. And I share my secrets of success in this industry. Between writing code, the code examples, 3 projects, a final exam, and learning about the soft skills you'll be completely prepared to apply for a front end web development job. 

And if that's not enough, I share 5 life hacks for earning a living as a junior JavaScript developer that you can apply throughout your entire career. (you DON'T need to wait a year before getting a job!).

By the end of this course, you'll be a a confident JavaScript developer because you'll be able to write, read, debug and fully understand JavaScript: the most common and popular programming language in the world. 

...

Here is exactly what you'll learn in this course: 

• JavaScript and programming fundamentals such as variables, comparisons, programming logic, data types, if/else statemenets, functions, objects, arrays, try/catch statements, classes and more.

• Everything you need to know to get a job as a front end web developer. 

• What you should learn after this course and why you might not want to listen to other developers when they give you "certain advice" (hint: there's a lot of bad advice in Facebook groups)

• How to make your webpages interactive using JavaScript.

• More advanced JavaScript topics such as closures, hoisting, inheritance, self-invoking functions and anonymous functions.

• Introduction to ES6 with arrow pointers, const, let and proper classes.

• How to earn a respectable living WHILE you learn to code. People say it takes a year or two of being broke before you can pay your bills: they're absolutely WRONG.

• Developers often face problems such as imposter syndrome. You'll learn how to deal with that.

... 

This course isn't for everybody but this course is a perfect fit for you if...

• You want to learn JavaScript.

• You want to become a web developer by writing JavaScript.

• You want to change careers. 

• You want to learning programming concepts that work for Python, Java, PHP or Node.js.

...

Now it's your turn to decide if this course is for you. This is what you get:

• Lifetime access to my HD videos. No monthly subscriptions.

• Learn JavaScript at your own pace.

• Downloadable code examples. 

• Practice coding with 3 projects! 

• A final exam to test your memory. 

• A certificate of completion, stamped by Udemy!

• Access on mobile, TV, tablet or computer!

This is a HUGE offering and I've built this course from the ground up after listening to hundreds of developers talk about what they want to learn.

Who is the target audience?
  • Take this course if you want to learn JavaScript from a REAL front end web developer

  • Take this course if you want to learn fundamental programming concepts you can use in Python, Node, Ruby, Java or PHP by learning the most common language in the world: JavaScript
  • This course is for you if you've already taken a JavaScript course but don't feel confident in your skills
  • Do NOT take this course if you're just interested in watching boring videos and not actually learning anything. We're very hands-on in this course!
