About This Course

JavaScript is an object oriented programming language that allows you to create interactive web applications. Unlike most other programming languages, JavaScript does not require a separate IDE. You just need a text editor such as notepad and a web browser to get started. Advanced JavaScript concepts delve deeper than the basics to leverage the full power of JavaScript. ES6 is a recent JavaScript implementation which provides features that were not available in previous JavaScript versions.

In this Advanced JavaScript & ES6 training course, developers will learn about advanced JavaScript concepts and techniques which will increase the complexity and efficiency of your applications. Several useful features of ES6 that increase the functionality of your code will be covered as well.

Javascript Developer, RetailMeNot
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.
