Explore and master modern JavaScript techniques with ES2015 in order to build large-scale web applications
JavaScript is a high-level, dynamic, untyped, lightweight, and interpreted programming language. Mastering modern JavaScript techniques and the toolchain are essential to develop web-scale applications. This Learning Path will upgrade your skills to ES2015, and you will get to introduce yourself to popular frameworks like React and Angular 2.
In the first module, you will get familiar with the language constructs and how to make code easy to organize. You will gain a concrete understanding of variable scoping, loops, and best practices on using types and data structures, as well as the coding style and recommended code organization patterns in JavaScript. By the end of the module, you will understand how reactive JavaScript is going to be the new paradigm.
Over the course of the next module, you will explore how design patterns can help you improve and organize your JavaScript code. You’ll get to grips with creational, structural, and behavioral patterns and get a deeper look at patterns used in functional programming, as well as model view patterns and patterns to build web applications. By the end of the module, you’ll be saved of a lot of trial and error and developmental headaches, and you will be on the road to becoming a JavaScript expert.
In the last leg of this course, you will shift your focus to network programming concepts as you build a real-time web application with websockets. Along the way, you’ll explore how the power of JavaScript can be increased multi-fold with high performance techniques. By the end of this module, you’ll be a skilled JavaScript developer with a solid knowledge of the latest JavaScript techniques, tools, and architecture to build modern web apps.
