Learning programming is an interesting and exciting process for many people. And anyone who starts learning programming cannot do without learning JavaScript. JavaScript is a full-fledged programming language that allows you to build complex features on a web page, giving it interactivity and dynamic behavior. This could include a scrolling video player, displaying periodically updated content, games, dynamic styles, and animation. JavaScript is pretty compact, very flexible, incredibly versatile, and friendly to beginners in IT.

Viaduct Academy’s free online “JavaScript Basic” course sounds very promising, and it actually is. It will introduce to you the basic concepts and functions of the language. JavaScript may seem a little intimidating to beginners, but do not worry - in this course, you will be immersed into theory and then directly into practice, making your own JavaScript examples. At the end of our course, a test assignment will check your understanding of the basics of JS and the quality of the knowledge you gained.

JavaScript is one of the most promising web technologies, and when you become proficient in using it, you will unlock new ways to make your website more powerful and appealing. By becoming familiar with some of the basic features of the JavaScript language, you will better understand how it all works. If you learn and master these basics, you can apply them to other common programming languages.

Viaduct Academy’s mentor Egor Tolkachev has this to say about JavaScript and the online course: “Looking through all the history of information technologies in general, and programming in particular, it’s hard to notice such universal solution like JS. The C programming language is likely to cover more fields than JS, but I’m not sure. Moreover, this comparison is not correct. At the beginning of its history, JS was just a primitive scripting language, locked in web-development sphere by its design. The situation remained the same until some innovations, like NodeJS for instance, led to the fact that JS left frontend background. The next stage taken by JS was backend. Nowadays JS finds more and more popularity among backend developers and captures students’ curiosity. This language has gone far away from the web-dev field. JS can be found anywhere: desktop applications and server-side solutions, embedded systems and IoT, security and artificial intelligence. Its reach is unstoppable.

Students that enroll in our Academy, should expect not only to work with various JS technologies but they will also be exposed to newer tech stacks that are gaining popularity in the IT world. These circumstances require our students to have a special attitude towards the learning process. Viaduct’s solution to proper JS training, is to take an academic approach with a deep dive into internal mechanics of pure JS. Our course is divided into two parts: pure JS and MERN, with JS making up the majority of the course time. At the completion of the course, all of our students will have successfully studied MERN on their own, and some of them will be given the opportunity to showcase what they have learned by giving an open lecture to the professors and their colleagues. Currently, many of our graduates have started their engineering career right here at Viaduct.”
