Are these courses any good in terms of hands on practice?

I’m currently doing The Complete 2020 Web Development Bootcamp by Dr. Angela Yu (

I wanted to know if this course is better or the one by Colt Steele ( The Web Developer Bootcamp 2020

Please provide review of The Advanced Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele

Also, has anyone tried Scrimba?


I’ve heard good things about Colt Steele, but I can’t offer any comparison between those courses. Honestly though, it doesn’t really matter that much. If the one you are doing makes sense and you are following it well, then it’s fine. You are going to need to use a lot more resources than a single course, no matter what you do, so whichever one gets you started and keeps you engaged is good.

Hi @FST360!

I did a little bit of Angela’s and heard that Colt updated his course and gets good reviews.

All of these courses though just go over the basics. So don’t think of it as the one stop shop for being job ready. I would pick a resource that you feel comfortable with.

My approach has been to learn some basics, build something, hit repeat.

Also, in terms of hands on practice, with udemy courses you will usually just code along. So, I don’t know if that is the type of hands on you were looking for.

For projects, in addition to FCC, you could look into the Odin project.

The thing for me is that Freecodecamp is really great in terms of teaching from beginner to intermediate level. But I just feel like it doesn’t teach you how all the things in modules come together and work. That is why I rely on udemy to get a sort of foundation and then follow it up with Freecodcamp.

thank you for answering @jwilkins.oboe, can you please tell a little bit about theOdinproject.

Odin project is simliar to FCC.

It will teach you the basics and then you will do projects along the way.

I did a couple of their javascript projects.
