JavaScript is the most in-demand skill. Get an extra advantage with this course's special JS interview question videos.

If your goal is to learn JavaScript and get hired, take this course.

According to the 2018, Hackerrank developer survey, JavaScript is the number one skill that companies are looking for in the tech industry. After all, JavaScript is the language that runs in the browser. And almost every company does business through a web application.

JavaScript frameworks are also the biggest gap between what employers demand, and what candidates can provide. This is because JavaScript still isn't a part of the core curriculum at many universities. Rising software engineers don't have JavaScript skills unless they learn on their own.

Therefore, according to the statistics, learning JavaScript is smartest choice to increasing your chances of landing a job.

In addition, this course is going to give you an extra advantage. Throughout the course, there are special interview-question based videos. These focus on particularly tricky question, that you may get asked about during a JavaScript interview.

Here's how the course journey will go:

  • First: the Basics. You'll ramp on the console, syntax, objects, and other language fundamentals.

  • Second: Functions. There are a few ways to create functions. So you'll explore those differences, and important concepts like the `this` keyword.

  • Third: Types - Digging Deeper. There are some big questions about types: what is type coercion? How are truthy and falsy different? What is null vs. undefined? In this section, you'll cover those questions and more.

  • Fourth: Syntax - the Intricacies. In this one, you'll discover JavaScript features that can help make your code cleaner. You'll also investigate odd language behavior like hoisting.

  • Fifth: Objects - Deeper Concepts. This section will introduces more features that can clean up code around objects. The larger topic in this section is a series of videos on creating object clones.

  • Sixth: Functions - Deeper Concepts. The theme of "Deeper concepts" continues. This time, it's functions. In this section, you'll dig into big terms like closures, function factories, and higher-order functions.

  • Seventh: Constructors and Prototypes. This is probably the most crucial section in the course. Exploring prototype-based inheritance is an illuminating experience. You'll discover the "why" and "how" behind the truth that almost everything is an object in JavaScript.

  • Eighth: Asynchronous code and the JavaScript engine. This last section will complete the investigation of JavaScript under the hood. You'll track code as it executes through the JavaScript runtime components: the callstack, queue, and event loop.

The course is meant for all levels. If you start from the beginning, you will learn JavaScript from scratch. But the course is designed to allow intermediate to advanced students to start at later sections, if they see fit. The lessons and interview question videos would benefit anyone, no matter their experience.

In addition to the interview-question based videos, there are resources like quizzes to help reinforce your learning.

Overall, the statistics say that investing your time in JavaScript is a wise decision. On top of this, this course is giving you a greater advantage by preparing you for the tough interview questions.

Ultimately, if your goal is to get hired for your JavaScript skills, then this course will set you on that path!
