Advance your JavaScript skills and learn the modern approach to web applications by building projects from the ground up

If you have some coding experience under your belt, but you want to take your web development skills to the next level, this course is for you.  This is a comprehensive introduction to the deeper ins-and-outs of JavaScript, and the modern, increasingly popular framework, React.

Whether you are a student or working developer who only knows Java or Python, a wannabe developer who’s learning on their own, an applicant for a coding bootcamp, or a developer who hasn’t touched web technologies in a while, the concepts covered in this course will help you beef up your knowledge, your skills, your resume, and your portfolio.

In this course, you will:

  • Master fundamental JavaScript concepts like the DOM, Events and Callbacks, and AJAX

  • Call real-world APIs and parse the data in your own web projects

  • Work with the new features of the JavaScript language thanks to ES6

  • Use popular web tooling including npm, Yarn, Grunt, Gulp, and webpack

  • Study the ins and outs of React component lifecycles, state, properties, and other core React concepts

  • Build modern web projects with React

  • Deploy your web applications online for the world to see

  • Take real-world interview practice quizzes as you build your knowledge

You’ll be practicing your skills through quizzes and by building both simple and complex projects in this course, including but not limited to a website theme toggler, a NASA Image Search site, a personal portfolio site, and a markdown note manager.  Each of these projects are expandable in a way where you can customize it to your heart’s content, perfect for your own portfolios. The quizzes cover actual interview questions as well as topics you’ll see throughout your front-end development career. By the end of this course, you should feel comfortable doing a JavaScript job interview.
