So you want to learn Advanced JavaScript?

Here are some common approaches

  • Random Blogs

    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.

  • Youtube Videos

    It's happened to all of us, one moment you're using Youtube to learn about React's useEffect Hook and the next you're watching a "KIDS REACT TO PAYPHONES" video. Finding a high-quality, up-to-date YouTube video that effectively answers all of your questions on a JavaScript topic might actually be more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack. With so many videos and zero quality control, it’s easy to get sucked down the YouTube rabbit hole for hours without getting much learning out of it.

  • Live Workshops

    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.

  • Conferences

    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.

  • All-In-One Subscriptions

    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.

The better approach?

All our courses follow the same proven structure, optimized for knowledge, not the illusion of learning.

  • Effort

    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.

  • Non-Contextual Analysis

    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.

  • Quiz

    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.

  • Non-Contextual 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.

  • Contextual Practice

    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 result?

  • Class Fields

    • JavaScript Private and Public Class Fields

    In this section you'll learn about Private and Public Class Fields in JavaScript, when to use them and how they're useful.

  • Bonus Time

    • JavaScript Composition vs Inheritance
    • JavaScript Array Methods you should know

    Everything else you should probably know.

  • Hype

    • I loved the content of this course. Tyler does a great job of explaining difficult concepts. I will be revisiting this information on a frequent basis to practice my javascript skills.

    • 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.

    • J

      A great course to refresh yourself on the finer points of JavaScript - or a must-do for anyone coming up through the ranks.

    • Rarely do you find someone who can explain and execute JS like Tyler. He has an uncanny ability to explain Javascript with real life metaphors and examples that make things 'click' in your brain. At least for me anyways. Truly grateful! :)

    • 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.

    • What makes these courses different from other online courses?

      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.

    • Do the courses have captions?


    • How long should I expect each course to take?

      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.

    • In which order should I take the courses?

      If you're comfortable with JavaScript (including ES6) and want to jump straight to React, go with "React", "React Hooks", then any other course that looks interesting. If you're not comfortable with JavaScript, start with "Modern JavaScript", then "Advanced JavaScript", then any other course you'd like.

    • What level of experience is required for getting the most out of these courses?

      A fundamental understanding of JavaScript or familiarity with another programming language. For example, you should be comfortable with functions, arguments, loops, control flow, etc. If you want to jump straight in to the React courses, we recommend having a stronger knowledge of JavaScript, which you can get from our JavaScript courses if you’re unsure.

    • How does the subscription work?

      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.

    • I need an official invoice with certain fields like VAT. Can I get one?

      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.

    • What projects will I build throughout the courses

      You can find every project on the /projects page.

      Incredible JS review this weekend. The Callback/Promises/Async Await section was especially good. I understand even deeper now.

      Tyler does an excellent job in describing the concepts in this curriculum succinctly. True to his word from his marketing pages, he is to the point and doesn't go off on tangents. The lessons on execution context and understanding the this keyword are among the better explanations on the internet I've read.

      I took Tyler's "Advanced JavaScript" course. It was hard (for me at least). But, I learned a lot even though I had already spent a lot of time and money taking JS classes at NYU. I now have a much better understanding of concepts like inheritance, prototypes, and the this keyword. I knew about them before, but I didn't really understand them that well.

      It was really great to be a part of this course, i learnt a lot .Each point  of the course was explained in a very good way and the best part was, each topic has an example (which i personally feel was great because i myself prefer to learn from examples rather the definition )

      Tyler's course moves fast but it does so in an effective way that doesn't waste any time. As a programmer coming from a different language it was a bit of a steeper learning curve however because his lessons are concise I could always rewatch one without feeling like I was wasting time and that way I could make sure I understood everything.

      I found the Advanced JS course is one of the most valuable resources  to learn JS.\n\nIt focuses on the right feature set and its implementation across various versions of JS. The explanations are very clear and in simple language.  At the same time, it makes you think for yourself which is when I gain the most.\n\nAnyone who wants  to learn JS  can use Tyler's courses and very quickly gain a good understanding of JS. I was not very familiar with JS  but have experience with other programming languages and was still able to follow along without any difficulty.
