What people are saying

One of the most effective online courses I've taken on anything anywhere. In a week I've gone from basic functions to web components and the muddy mess of JS has settled into crystal clarity. Bravo! @JoelGMcKinnon

Before taking this course, JavaScript always felt impossible to understand. I'd tried dozens of tutorials but always gave up and felt demoralized afterwards. Less than a month since starting LearnJavascript Online, I feel empowered to develop my own projects.
The course is perfectly structured from start to finish, and enables you to learn by actively writing code instead of just reading / watching somebody else. Without a doubt, this is the best investment I've made in my own education as a developer.

I've been studying JS for a long time, but thanks to this course many things fell into place and their meaning and purpose became clearer. Also, practical tasks helped me a lot; by doing this you get used to the language, its constructions and how they interact with each other. It really helps to memorize the material and understand how it can be applied in practice. And I really love flashcards which helps me to refresh and recall material. - Anton

Awesome!! I've tried everything, books, tutorials, projects etc. But this is by far my best learning experience. Thank you!! - Nick

It's a great series of lessons and challenges that teach ES6 fundamentals clearly and concisely. Jad has given special attention to creating lean challenges that test what you have learned without getting in your way.
As someone with a basic understanding of JavaScript already, I found Learn JavaScript very helpful for cementing what I already knew, and for picking up new things that I had missed along the way.

I'm super impressed with how high the quality of this course is. I've used a few similar products in the past and this is easily the nicest to use. @luke_bennett_

I can't tell you how much fun this is. The step-by-step, cumulative, real-world application has helped me to cement concepts that I've struggled with for a long time. @windowswebdev

Should I learn JavaScript before learning React, Angular or Vue?

Yes. It's important to understand the basics of JavaScript before learning any frontend framework or library. For example, Fetch is common alongside frontend frameworks and it's a web API that you should learn first.

What is an efficient way to learn JavaScript?

To efficiently learn JavaScript, you have to practise every time you learn something new. Keep in mind that you need to take breaks to make it possible for your brain to persist new knowledge. It's also ideal if you can practise flashcards for a few minutes every day.
