JavaScript for Beginners; In Depth Training to truly Learn JavaScript; Gets You Started as a JavaScript Programmer

JavaScript has changed and matured since its humble beginnings in 1995. One of the original goals of JavaScript in those early years was to make it easy for beginners. That goal has made it accessible for all types of people. However, this has also meant that JavaScript has been taught and learned incompletely by many. 

In Learn Modern JavaScript: Getting Started, you are taught the fundamentals of JavaScript the right way. We won't skip topics. Some topics may seem more advanced, but that is because they are crucial to a complete grounding of JavaScript. Most importantly, you are taught the why, not just the what and how.

This course contains 12 sections, 113 different topics, over 13 hours of video tutorials, 12 exercises and everything you need for the proper grounding in JavaScript.

If you are ready to jump into the world of JavaScript or you want to increase you new found skills, this course is for you!
