We'll start the course off with some housekeeping items. You'll learn about the best strategy for getting the most out of the course as well as what to expect.
In this section you'll learn how you can use ES6's 'Template Literals' to make string concatenation suck less.
In this section you'll learn the difference between compiling your code and polyfilling it as well as why that matters.
In this section you'll learn how you can use ES6's Shorthand Syntax to make your code more concise and readable.
ES6 introduces two new ways to create variables, let and const. In this section you'll learn the difference between var, let, and const and when to use them.
In this section you'll learn how you can use ES6's 'Computed Property Names' to have an expression (a piece of code that results in a single value like a variable or function invocation) be computed as a property name on an object.
In this section you'll learn how you can leverage ES6's 'Default Parameters' to set the default value of a function's parameter if one is not given when the function is invoked.
In this section you'll learn all about ES6 Classes by looking at how Classes work under the hood with the Prototype Chain.
In this section you'll learn the next steps you need to take in order to cement everything you've learned in the course.
This is the part where we're supposed to tell you how great the course is. Even better if we get other "famous" developers to give their "reviews". Instead, we'll let those who have actually taken the course do that.
Easily a five! While I was familiar with the topics I found I learned something new in each section. Specifically the ES modules, I didn't know it was now possible to implement that without Babel. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, thank you for making it!
Great Course, lots of new stuff.
It's hard to give this a 3/5 rating as the Tyler has done a really good job with covering the topics he covers in this course. He's an amazing teacher but to be honest I think going through a text book would cover more and dive more in depth. Some people might enjoy the video format I guess. The write ups and examples are great and I enjoyed going through them but for the price of $40/month, O'Reilly / Manning books just provide so much more and you can keep them to reference back to whenever. The quizzes for these courses are also kinda not really necessary. I think they should be replaced with exercises where the skills we just learned are put into practice rather than knowledge based multiple choice questions.
What a gem! I've just completed a bootcamp and have been studying on my own for quite some time now. I spent a few weeks doing research on the best online courses to take that would solidify the knowledge I already have and I'm sad to say I didn't find Tyler McGinnis earlier. But, I'm pleased and excited to say that I now have a grasp on all things JS that I struggled with like understanding JS Modules, prototypes, and classes. I cannot wait to dive into his other courses.
Good start on any Advanced JS road that you want to take.
The content of the course is really great, the way a topic is explained is very clear, I appreciate the effort been put into it. However, I think it would be nicer if there could be some coding exercises for each lesson.
Great and full of interesting nuances!
