What's in the course?
This course is obviously packed with content - I therefore strongly recommend that you check out the full course curriculum to get a clear idea of all the topics covered in the course. In general, here's what you'll find in the course:
ALL the Basics: Variables, constants, functions, how scripts are loaded etc
Arrays & Objects: We'll explore these very important data structures in great detail
Control Structures: Understand how to run code conditionally and in loops
Classes & Object-oriented Programming: Learn how to work with classes, prototypes, the "this" keyword, constructor functions and much more
Asynchronous and Synchronous Programming: We'll explore callbacks, promises, async/ await and other important tools and language features to execute code correctly
Tooling, Optimizations & Browser Support: Code splitting, producing small code and ensuring that scripts work in all browsers - this matters and hence is covered in great detail
Libraries & Frameworks: Learn about libraries like Axios or frameworks like React.js - why they matter and how to use them
Node.js: Whilst focusing on the browser-side for the majority of the course (because the syntax is the same), we'll also have a dedicated section on Node.js to learn all about that JS host environment
Security & Performance Optimizations: Of course security matters, so does performance - no surprise that both is covered in the course!
Automated Testing: Testing manually is hard work and can be unreliable - in this course you'll also get an introduction into automated testing
What are the course prerequisites?
You also need NO programming experience other than basic web development knowledge (e.g. how the web works)
Basic HTML and CSS knowledge is recommended but not a must-have
