This course is up to date, guaranteed
Here are some common approaches
It's not that blog posts are bad, it's that finding and piecing together unrelated yet up to date posts that form a linear, cohesive path to learning complex technical topics is hard.
You know what they say, the best learning happens sitting in a classroom for 8 hours at a time listening to dry lectures and working through practice problems that only serve to make you feel comfortable so you’ll feel like you learned something. Oh wait, no. No one says that.
Things conferences are great for - networking, travelling on your company's dime, free swag, finding other companies to join. Things conferences are not great for - learning in depth technical topics that you will remember and put into practice literally 3 days later when you’re back at the office, quality wifi.
These are the larger companies that offer courses on seemingly every technology under the sun. We won’t name them, but chances are your company has a business subscription to at least one of them and chances are that you don’t use it much. Their courses are made by a wide assortment of third-party contractors and optimized for production quality, not educational value.
All our courses follow the same proven structure, optimized for knowledge, not the illusion of learning.
We're obsessed with making the most effective developer education content on the planet. On average, it takes us around 1,900 hours to create a new course. While others prioritize quantity, we optimize for quality.
The first time you're introduced to a topic, any extra contextual information you have to process only serves as a distraction. Although it takes more time, our non-contextual analysis comes in two forms, video and text. This way, no matter how you prefer to learn, there's an option for you.
Nothing fancy here. After learning about the topic you'll receive a quiz to make sure you have a solid conceptual understanding before moving on to the hands-on practice.
Similar to the non-contextual analysis, context is everything. The first time you're hands-on with a new topic, any extra contextual information you have to process only serves as a distraction. This is why we first have you work through small, focused practice problems before you ever see the new topic in the context of a larger project.
You've probably experienced it before, you feel like you're learning so much going through a tutorial only to hit a wall once it's time to actually apply that knowledge outside of the context of the tutorial. All the non-contextual practice in the world is useless if you're not then able to take that knoweldge and apply it towards a (contextual) production level codebase.
The ability to take what you learn and apply it towards a production codebase
Everything else you should probably know.
Mind blown. Every other moment a light bulb was going off in my head. Without a traditional CS background sometimes it can be hard to wrap my head around 'why' things are done. This really bridged some huge gaps for me. Fabulous, well done.
This is the best JS class I've found on the internet. Highly recommended!!
This course was a fantastic refresher on core JS concepts that I had attempted to learn in other courses - I am in process of learning React but needed a refresher on some of the more advanced JS concepts and Tyler provided enough depth but presented the content in a very approachable manner (better than some of my current University professors!).
Best part of this course is how it breaks down seemingly hard concepts to simple basic elements that you can build on. I had stayed away from complex concepts such as event loop, execution contexts. After going through the course they seem straightforward.
Actual working metaphors! Tyler's ability to explain and provide examples is unparalleled compared to courses I've taken. People try to provide some real-world example and just make it worse. Tyler actually makes sense when he explains things. Indeed, when he's done explaining, you almost think to yourself, "That's it?!
Tyler has exceptional gift to describe and explain complex topics in easy to understand way. If you are really interested to understand how things work in JS this is a great course to take.
Our courses are designed to teach you everything you need to know to confidently write production-ready code. The tradeoff is it will require more work and focus than a course that features a few bite-sized screencasts. Real learning takes time, but you can feel confident that once you've finished a course, you’ll have mastered everything you need to know with minimal knowledge gaps.
Naturally, it depends. Considering all our courses are comprised of video, text, quizzes, practice problems, and curriculum - 15-30 hours per course is a safe assumption.
Like Netflix. You pay $40 per month or $350 per year for access to all our courses, premium newsletters, and events. Your subscription will be active until you cancel, which you can do at any time in your dashboard.
Once you sign up, as part of the welcome email, you'll be given a link to fill out where you can input all your company's info.
You can find every project on the /projects page.
Awesome course! Learned a lot! Super recommended!
Having started off learning ES6, this helped me easily understand what is happening under the hood.
This course explains some very scary topics (like prototypes and hoisting) in a very accessible manner. It makes you realize that these topics aren't so complicated after all.
I just went through advanced js and it was very well structured and explained. The course goes through the entire flow behind the creation and use of each feature, really cool way to explain stuff.
I found this one to be a little less impressive than Modern JS. There were multiple videos and quizzes that were recycled from the previous course. I watched them again (at 1.75x speed) just to reinforce what I learned because there was so much covered in the first JS course.
The examples and explanation of using various array methods are so good. Excellent refresher and exceptionally well written.
Very interesting subject. And useful too.
