What you will learn

  1. Learn Intermediate JavaScript

    3 months to complete

    The goal of the Intermediate JavaScript Nanodegree program is to prepare students for roles in web development, server-side application development, and desktop development that require a more advanced set of JavaScript skills. This program will also prepare students with the skills required to use JavaScript frameworks like React, Angular, and Vue.

    Prerequisite knowledge

    Basic JavaScript experience

    1. Object Oriented JavaScript

      Learn how to use the object oriented programming features of JavaScript to build applications with reusable and maintainable blocks of code. You’ll build classes to construct objects that include both data and functionality, learn how to use prototypal inheritance to maintain DRY code, and how to keep data safe and secure with private properties.

    2. Functional Programming

      Gain a better understanding of programming paradigms and why there is a trend towards the Functional paradigm right now. Beyond a high level understanding of Functional programming, you will also discover and practice the modern JavaScript syntax that will allow you to benefit from these concepts in your everyday JavaScript programs.

    3. Asynchronous Programming in JavaScript

      Get comfortable reading, writing, and thinking in asynchronous patterns. You will cover the original and modern ways to handle asynchronous events in JavaScript, from callbacks, to Promises, and Async/await. Alongside these topics will come important conceptual lessons, real life applications, and lots of hands on practice.
