Announcing “Vanilla JavaScript for Beginners”

A lot of people have told me that they learn code better through video, and prefer seeing code in action over just reading about how it works.

I’m working on a new video course, Vanilla JavaScript for Beginners.

This step-by-step video training is short, focused, and made for beginners. No foo/bar bullsh*t. No terminal window. No “just [do this really complicated thing].”

Together, we’ll build a feature-rich show/hide script. You’ll walk away with a real, working project and solid understanding of foundational JavaScript.

If you’re sick of hostile answers on StackOverflow, bad documentation, and tutorials that assume you have a Computer Science degree, this is for you.

The course is still under development, but if you pre-order today, you’ll save 50%.

I’ll be doubling the price of the course when it goes live. If you want to be the first to get it and save a ton of cash, nows your chance.

🚀 Make 2018 the year you master JavaScript! My pocket guides and mini courses are short, focused, and made for beginners. You can do this!
