About this course

Modern web apps are written using a framework like Angular, React/Redux, or Vue. But these require expertise in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This course will fast-track you to a sufficient foundation of these web technologies to be able to start learning any of those popular frameworks.
You will not only discover the fundamental secrets of the inner workings of the web but you’ll also learn advanced topics like semantic tags, progressive web apps and responsive design, CSS transforms and transitions, CSS layouts with flexbox and grid, functional vs. OO JavaScript,
Modern debugging techniques, consuming RESTful data with Ajax calls.
This is an intro class but it covers some very advanced topics. Every minute is spent in preparation to use React, Vue, or Angular with nothing extraneous.
