Best Javascript Courses to Learn Code for Beginners

Written by Brian

Here is a list of Javascript courses that I’ve taken as well as other popular ones I’ve seen. These are just my opinions. Some of these courses will be paid and others will be free. If you’ve taken any other courses or used alternative resources, feel free to contact me so I can add it to the list!

There's so many Javascript Courses out there, so I didn't put these in any specific order in terms of the quality. I enjoy learning from multiple people, so I think it's best to find someone you can really understand and resonate with to help you improve your knowledge.

1. The Complete Javascript Course 2020: Build Real Projects!

If you search up Javascript on Udemy, you will probably see this course show up. Jonas is a very popular creator for online coding courses and his courses are very high quality. He includes challenges in this course to help reinforce your knowledge and includes multiple projects that you get to build to see the code in action.

2. The Modern Javascript Bootcamp

Andrew is another popular creator on the platform Udemy. He starts off with the fundamentals of Javascript and makes it very easy to understand. He includes mini challenges as well after every few lectures to test your knowledge. The course starts off with a simple todo app and eventually you'll build one on your own. He has a very open personality and makes it very easy to follow along.

3. The Modern Javascript Bootcamp Course (2020)

If you've looked up coding courses before, then you've probably come across Colt Steele. He created this Javascript bootcamp along with another popular instructor Stephen Grider. He goes over the fundamentals of Javascript and has very high quality powerpoint slides and animations. This course is extremely massive with over 52 hours of content. If you have the time, you could finish this course in about a week. However, if you did it part time it could take a few weeks.

4. Codecademy

Codecademy is like an upgraded version of Freecodecamp in my opinion. The UI is much cleaner and makes it easier to progress through the content. They have a free version and a pro version. Their free version covers the essentials for learning specific coding languages, but the pro version is where they give you access to additional features that can really boost your progress.

They cover multiple languages, and they have courses that focus on Javascript as well. It is super beginner friendly and easy to get started. If you enjoy an interactive platform, then you will definitely enjoy learning JS with Codecademy.

I made an in-depth video on my Youtube channel reviewing Codecademy. You can watch it here.

5. Udacity

Udacity is extremely popular when it comes to tech courses. They offer both free and paid programs. They have introductory courses on Javascript that are free to join and you can start learning Javascript right away. They provide very high quality tutorials that aren't like any other courses you've seen.

Eventually, you can upgrade to their premium courses which they call Nanodegrees. The Nanodegree programs are meant to be completed within a few months and once you are finished with them, you will have a few projects that you can add to your portfolio.

I made a review video of Udacity’s Front end Developer Nanodegree. You can check it out here.

The pros is that it is very well structured and forces you to actually take action vs. just copying and listening like other courses. The downside would be the cost of the program. If you prefer to have something that forces you to actually build projects, then you'd love Udacity.

If money is not an issue, then I'd definitely recommend you look into them.

6. Javascript Tutorial and Projects Course

John is another popular instructor on Udemy and he focuses majority of his courses on projects. I really enjoyed this course because it starts off with simple beginner projects that are easy to understand. Eventually, he creates more advanced projects that will help you understand more complex parts.

The course is over 46 hours long and is packed with tons of projects to complete. I haven't seen any other course like this that is heavily project focused. If you're the type of person who'd rather build projects all day vs just listening to theory and information, then you'll love this course.

7. Modern Javascript (from Novice to Ninja)

Net Ninja is another popular instructor and runs a massive youtube channel where he created tons of free tutorials. He creates very high quality courses that are super easy to follow and absorb. His Modern Javascript course is another popular JS course on Udemy. I really enjoy the quality of his tutorials and the amount of effort he puts into his content.

8. Frontend Masters

To finish off my list, I had to include Frontend Masters. They created very high quality courses that are usually filmed in a classroom settings with a live audience. I would say their courses are more intermediate to advanced, so if you are just starting out on day 1, you might want to consider some of my previous recommendations first before looking into Frontend Masters.

They have some of the most famous Javascript teachers in their courses and they go super in depth with Javascript. Their pricing is a little higher than most courses out there, but if you can afford it, then it definitely is worth the price.
