Since 2015, a lot of new features have been added to the language specification, from new ways of declaring variables to new primitives and new useful methods.

Each lesson will cover a new set of features and guide you through them with interactive examples and exercises to test your understanding.
At the end of the course,you will also find an introduction to
TypeScript, a must have knowledge for any
The course includes a bunch of lessons that are free to preview so you just go ahead and have a look for yourself without having to commit to purchasing it right away.
