Which JS course to buy?

Have few hours left to decide.

Anthony Alicea’s Javascript: understanding the weird parts is definitely a great choice.
It may seem outdated but it sets up a great foundation


i know him, but he’s really outdated.

Depends what is your current knowledge of javascript?

Virtually none. Beginner from zero.

Bought 1 course on Friday & Black Friday, have to buy one now free.

Most of my javascript knowledge is through the web development courses such as colt steele, but if you are looking for strictly javascript I believe there is a pretty good one by jonas schmedtmann (I think thats how you spell it). I have not personally tried his courses, but have heard good things from others in this forum about him. im pretty sure there is no javascript knowledge required

I can’t decide between this two:




Andrew Mead’s Modern JavaScript looks like a great course (I haven’t taken it yet), but I’d be inclined to recommend holding off on that until you have a better understanding of ES5 JavaScript. Or you could buy it now anyway, but I’d still recommend holding off on actually doing the course until later (again, until you learn ES5).

I’d recommend this course instead for a relative beginner, it’s a good companion to Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp (if you haven’t done Colt Steele’s course, I’d recommend doing that one first): https://www.udemy.com/git-a-web-developer-job-mastering-the-modern-workflow/

for starters i bought https://www.udemy.com/the-complete-web-developer-in-2018/

The “Git a Web Developer Job” course I linked in my previous post would be a good companion to that course you linked as well, based on its outline. It looks overall fairly comparable to Colt Steele’s.

I’ve taken both courses and I’d recommend Andrew Meade’s course first. Jonas’ course is great but it moves a little too quickly for a beginner. Andrew Meade is better about moving step by step so a beginner can follow along more easily. So I’d say start with Modern Javascript and then try The Complete Javascript Course. Best of luck!

thanks :slight_smile: i bought andew mead’s :slight_smile:

I think the only one you would need is this one on Udemy.

The Advanced Web Developer Bootcamp

^ I’m currently going through that course (The Advanced Web Developer Bootcamp) and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. It’s largely a waste of time, especially the sections that aren’t done by Colt, which is most of them.

I know that The Advanced isn’t good hehe.

Agreed. For anyone else who looks through this topic. I did not like the any of the content that was not don’t by colt. Especially the react section. That was just a huge mess, and poorly explained compared to the colt sections.
