This course teaches the fundamentals of JavaScript, building a solid foundation before learning front-end web frameworks like React, Redux, Vue.js, and Angular. Students will begin with the basics of programming using JavaScript. They will learn how to solve algorithms with concepts such as callbacks, closures, high-order functions, and recursion. Following that, they will explore how to make applications come alive in the browser, how to communicate with a remote server, and finally, how to organize their code.
