Tl;dr -> I've got a new course out, it's about JavaScript and I'm really happy with the result, you can check it out Here (preview lessons available if you want to get an idea)

JavaScript has evolved a lot during the past years and the way developers use it has changed quite a bit. 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.

Keeping up with the updates can take a lot of time and that's why I originally wrote the book Complete Guide to Modern JavaScript, to have a book with a collection of all those new updates, easy to read, concise but without lacking substance.

The book recently got updated to include ES2019 material and the guys at Educative contacted me to create an interactive course based on it.

Why should you consider taking this course?

This course's aim is to provide you with all the tools you need to start writing code using the latest version of the language.

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 JavaScript developer going into 2020.

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.

What will I be able to do at the end of the course?

At the end of the course you will be able to understand and use all of the new additions to JavaScript since 2015. Stay ahead of the game and practice new features that will come out next year.

If you work in a company that is still stuck using old ES5 code, you will be able to get your skills up to speed and be able to refactor your code in a cleaner, more concise way.

What is cool about the Educative platform?

Video courses (e.g: Udemy kind) are nice, but as a personal preference, I think that written courses are quicker to go through and easier to go back and forth between lessons.

The thing I like the most about courses on Educative is that despite being written courses, they still offer a great degree of interactivity.

Simply reading an article full of code snippets is no a great way of learning but luckily on Educative you can have executable snippets, code exercises and even full-fledged html+css+js executable code all inside of an article.

This makes for quick, easy to read and interactive courses that I find are much faster to go through compared to video courses and also let you play around with your instructor's code.

Other interesting courses from Educative

Educative has courses for everybody and if you are not interested in `JavaScript` they have plenty other topics such as Machine Learning or React or even Blockchain
