Course Description

Hey gang, and welcome to your first step on the path to becoming a JavaScript ninja! In this course I'll be teaching you my absolute favourite language (JavaScript!) from the very beginning, right through to creating fully-fledged, dynamic & interactive web experiences. We'll cover all the basics to get you up-and-running quickly, before diving in to some of the really fun stuff like web-page manipulation, creating interactive forms, popups & other cool effects. Along the way we'll be using the latest additions to the JavaScript specification (ES6, 7 & beyond) and maintaining good coding standards to keep our code clean and effective! Once we master the basics, we'll dive into several real-life JavaScript projects, including an interactive quiz, a weather app, a real-time chat application and a small UI library you can use in all your future projects! We'll also take a look at some more advanced topics - object oriented programming, asynchronous code, real-time databases and much more. Finally, we'll be setting up a modern work-flow using Webpack & Babel, so that by the end of this course you'll be no less than a black-belt JavaScript developer with a lot of coding techniques in your tool-belt. Speaking of ninjas, I'm also known as The Net Ninja on YouTube, where you'll find hundreds of free coding tutorials, so feel free to pop by to say hello :). Who this course is for: New or junior developers who want to learn JavaScript from the ground up Front-end developers who want to level-up their JavaScript knowledge using modern, cutting-edge techniques Back-end developers who want to learn the JavaScript language for front-end development

A Little About Me...

Hey gang, my name's Shaun and since a young age I've had an obsession for nearly anything tech-related. I've been coding since about the age of 15 (half of my life, now...phew!) and work as a full-stack web developer and online instructor.

I also run a well-known development tutorial YouTube channel called The Net Ninja with nearly 300,000 subscribers. So feel free to browse some of my latest free tutorials on there if you want to check out my teaching style :).

My specialities mainly gravitate around one central language (and my first love) - JavaScript. I've been programming with it for around 12 years and - as with any long-term relationship - have had the pleasure of seeing it's ugly side as well as it's beautiful side. So I know the pitfalls to avoid when using it, and pass these on when appropriate in my tutorials.

As well as teaching, I've also helped to create many very popular, UK-based eCommerce websites, as well as a large amount of smaller, independent websites as well.

Other languages & technologies I use and teach are - Node.js, Vue, React, Python, Ruby, PHP, HTML & CSS.
