Best online course for wannabe JS developer
Well, JS is a very popular web programming language now, with skills in high demand. At this moment the web is certainly the popular and most widely used platform for application development. Right now if you are building anything for the web or more precisely anything that is rendered with the browser's engine, you need JS. Try to build a website or web application that does not use JS! Let me know how you manage that. If you can take some time to review Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2016 Results, you will learn more about most wanted skills. I was amazed by some results:

I can see a lot of wannabe web developers pretending to be skilled because they know some frameworks (Angular, Backbone, etc.) or libraries (React, jquery, etc.) doing the job behind the scene. I’m not against frameworks, but in order to have deep understanding what the code is really doing, I think it's not the best way to start programming. That's where Gordon Zhu is a maestro at. Gordon Zhu is an ex googler, and, in my opinion, a wizard coder. Take a look at his LinkdIn profile.
If you like this course, it's worth subscribing to the premium membership, a linear path for serious beginners who want to become amazing developers. You will acquire fundamental skills with good habits of highly successful programmers that could transform your work and enable you to pursue better opportunities in programming.
I have no interest in Gordon Zhu activities; I just wanted to share his high valuable work. Gordon Zhu is amazing, very humble and extremely talented at teaching.
