Grow your portfolio and build a wide range of fun projects, including…
This program is super hands-on. I always wanted to learn how to make my own libraries, or to know how jQuery library works. Async, Promises and Fetch was another huge one for me, that I used in my projects right away.
It gave me a lot of confidence as a developer, I wish I had a training like this when I started. It got me much closer to my goal of becoming a senior front-end dev.- Maria Blair

Hi, I'm Chris Ferdinandi. 👋
I help people learn front-end web development, and I believe there’s a simpler, more resilient way to make things for the web.
I’ve advised and written code for organizations like NASA, Apple, Harvard Business School, Chobani, and Adidas. My developer tips newsletter is read by over 14k developers each weekday.
I want to help you master web development, without all of the painful false starts and roadblocks I encountered when I was learning.
In terms of knowledge gained per effort expended, this course is hands down the best I've ever tried. More than just the content, it is the growing confidence that maybe even I can actually do this. I feel like I am beginning to know what I don't know. That is huge. Well done.- Stewart Davis
Honestly, the projects so far plus seeing your examples have helped me learn so much faster.- Craig Haggart
Your course provided the impetus to knuckle down and challenge myself. You got me writing code (not merely reading about it or watching videos).
Having a caring, well-spoken guide such as yourself made it fun to work through the projects. Having that in a group all tackling the same projects added that dynamic aspect that also got me moving.
Some specific things I liked: The fabulously well-crafted projects/challenges. The clarity of your teaching (videos, in-code comments, etc.). The supportive Slack channels. The feeling that no question is a dumb question -- and the thrill of having a dialogue going permitting sharing tidbits with others.
No Lynda.com tutorial or other tutorial provides that environment.- Ron Amick
Having your interaction is priceless. Such added value.- Elliott Porter
After going through this program, I found that using vanilla JS, you can accomplish A LOT more than the larger dev community would lead you to believe.- Zac Heisey
Can you actually create a website without JS frameworks? Yes! Here's a collection of resources to get started.- Ed Rivas
