Scheduled Start:

JavaScript started as a basic language for performing simple computations on web pages, but it’s now become one of the most popular–if not the most popular–programming language. Over the past few years, it’s become possible to do pretty much anything using only JavaScript: We can write entire front-end applications using React, Angular, or Vue. We can create JavaScript servers using Node.js. We can make JavaScript-driven desktop apps using Electron. We can even develop mobile apps in JavaScript using React Native. In other words, JavaScript has become the common tongue of the software-development world, making it possible for a single developer with a single programming language to build programs that only a few years ago would have required an entire department.

Join Shaun Wassell and take a journey into the universe of modern JavaScript. This LiveLessons offers manageable, thorough, step-by-step guides to learning and mastering modern JavaScript.

Shaun Wassell

Shaun Wassell's goal is to create a world where people are empowered to use programming as a way to solve meaningful problems, a world where writing code is just as natural for most people as walking or breathing. To make this a reality, he has dedicated the past few years to helping people learn and master software development skills through video courses for LinkedIn Learning, Pearson live training sessions, and one-on-one tutoring. Shaun has been programming since he was a kid, when creating video games was his gateway into the world of software. Since then, he’s been fortunate enough to be a contributing member on many amazing software projects and work with some incredible mentors along the way.
