Welcome to the Intermediate JavaScript Nanodegree Program

Lesson 1

Welcome to Udacity

Lesson 2

Getting Help

You are starting a challenging but rewarding journey! Take 5 minutes to read how to get help with projects and content.

Course 2 3 weeks

Object-Oriented JavaScript

Lesson 1

Objects in Depth

Objects in JavaScript encapsulate both data and functionality. You'll create, access, and modify objects to build a solid foundation for object-oriented programming.

Lesson 2

Functions at Runtime

Functions are one of most important data structures. Learn what a "first-class function" is, learn about scope, dig into closures, and use immediately-invoked function expressions for private state.

Lesson 3

Classes and Objects

Creating objects individually isn't sustainable. Learn how to create similar objects with ease using Classes. You'll also learn how object inheritance works through Prototypal Inheritance.

Lesson 4

Object-Oriented Design Patterns

Discover object-oriented design patterns that can be used to create an object -- all without involving its prototype. What's more: you'll also learn how to implement private properties in objects.

Lesson 5 • Project

Project: Dinosaurs

Course 3 4 weeks

Functional Programming

Lesson 1

Course Introduction - Functional Programming

Introduction to the course on Functional Programming with JavaScript

Lesson 2

Introduction to Functional Programming

Foundational Introduction to Functional Programming in JavaScript

Lesson 3

Functional JS Syntax

Experience writing functional programming with JavaScript & ES6 syntax

Lesson 4

Functional Programming in JS

Practice applying what you've learned so far into creating functional programs and bring clarity to how React works behind the scenes.

Lesson 5

Going Further with Functional JS

Going further with Functional Programming and common tools to solve traditional problems in web development.

Lesson 6 • Project

Mars Dashboard

In this project, you will create a dashboard that consumes the NASA API and applies all the functional programming learned throughout this course.

Course 4 4 weeks

Asynchronous Programming with JavaScript

This course dives deep into asynchronous programming, a technique essential for building responsive web applications. Learn how asynchronous code keeps your apps running smoothly even while waiting for data. Master key concepts like threads, callbacks, promises, and the elegant async/await syntax. Write clean, efficient code that keeps users engaged and in control. This course empowers you to harness the full potential of JavaScript without compromising user experience.

Lesson 1

Introduction to Asynchronous Programming

Meet your instructor and explore what you'll learn in the course and why it is important.

Lesson 2

Synchronous Concepts and Asynchronous Callbacks

To create a foundation for asynchronous programming concepts, we start with a discussion of synchronous code and the concepts of blocking vs non-blocking, then learn to use asynchronous callbacks.

Lesson 3

Sequencing Events - Promises

This lesson goes from basic Promise syntax all the way to implementing Promises, Fetch, and Promise methods.

Lesson 4

Sequencing Events - Async/Await

This lesson will get you acquainted with the Async/Await syntax introduced in ES8. Let's master the code and principles behind this helpful addition designed to make asynchronous flows easier.

Lesson 5 • Project

Project: UdaciRacer Simulator

Demonstrate your mastery of asynchronous JavaScript by creating a racing game! You'll use callbacks, Promises, and Async/Await syntax to build out the key functionalities of the UdaciRacer Simulator.
