Create dynamic and interactive web apps using JavaScript
  • Catch bugs early by learning about complex concepts that cause errors
  • Take full advantage of JavaScript’s single thread to optimize your code’s execution time
  • Utilize ES6 classes to work better with prototypal inheritance
  • Improve your skills to handle objects with property descriptors
  • Write side-effects-free, functional JavaScript code
  • Refactor old codebases that use callbacks and utilize async/await to maximize code readability
  • Use spawn multiple child processes and web workers to delegate time-consuming operations
  • Use NodeJS Process Manager to efficiently work with multiple services
About If you look at almost any web application, it is powered by JavaScript or one of its very popular frameworks like Angular, React, and Vue; but JavaScript continues to be a complex language with a steep learning curve and some areas that even seasoned developers struggle with. This is a practical course with a purpose to provide clarity in areas of the language that are the hardest to understand. You will learn the most important, and also the most commonly-used, language features in a fast-paced learning environment.

You will gain mastery over topics like functional and asynchronous programming, along with module loaders, and package registries. You will transpile code with Babel to support as many browsers as possible. You will spawn child processes and work with web workers to build modern, fast and scalable web applications with JavaScript, both on the server and the browser.

On completion of this course, you will have upgraded your JavaScript skills to the next level while stepping up to become a JavaScript expert. You will be able to code fluently on both the front-end and the back-end while following either the object-oriented or the functional approach.

Please note that prior knowledge of JavaScript and some experience with Node.js are assumed for taking this course.

All the code and supporting files for this course are available on GitHub at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/JavaScript-Essentials-for-Modern-Web-Development
