About the Course

Do you realize that the only functionality of a web application that the user directly interacts with is through the web page? Implement it poorly and, to the user, the server-side becomes irrelevant! Today’s user expects a lot out of the web page: it has to load fast, expose the desired service, and be comfortable to view on all devices: from a desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones. In this course, we will learn the basic tools that every web page coder needs to know. We will start from the ground up by learning how to implement modern web pages with HTML and CSS. We will then advance to learning how to code our pages such that its components rearrange and resize themselves automatically based on the size of the user’s screen. You’ll be able to code up a web page that will be just as useful on a mobile phone as on a desktop computer. No “pinch and zoom” required! Last but certainly not least, we will get a thorough introduction to the most ubiquitous, popular, and incredibly powerful language of the web: Javascript. Using Javascript, you will be able to build a fully functional web application that utilizes Ajax to expose server-side functionality and data to the end user....

A very detailed and comprehensive course with lots of skills to acquire and knowledge to gain. I would recommend it to every person since web development is skill with lots of demand in global market.

Excellent course for people with intermediate knowledge of programming. Very eloquently teaches Bootstrap framework and Javascript along with AJAX. Must take course for any aspiring web developer!

The course was great until JavaScript kicked me for beginners, the depth level of basic Javascript concepts is inadequate . No doubt Yaakov is a good teacher but he could have made a detailed session on Javascript concepts...jumping straight into the functions will not only make the beginners lose interest but also it wastes their time .

The course is great, except some part of the program version that the course use a little bit older than my version. It takes me some time to find the right answer. even if this course provides a lot of resources, I still had a difficult time to understand. But in gernaral, the course helps me learn a lot of basic HTML5, Css, some JavaScript.

The course is really great but there's a catch, begineers might struggle in Javascript phase as the instructors jumps directly to working with functions with only little basics covered and might end scratching your head which was my case .

p.s: learn Javascript function basics and then proceed with Javascript

Probably perfect in the range 2015-2017, but time has passed and too much materials are out of date. You will learn to use float layout in CSS, bootstrap 3 with jquery, ajax, and many JS tricks needed in 2015 but not relevant anymore with ES6.

Time to move on, and find course sa bit more up-to-date!

The HTML, Bootstrap sections were great, although the Js section I found really difficult to understand and implement. Overall i'll say this isnt really a good course to learn web development but rather just to follow along and build a website. Also course content is VERY OUTDATED!

This was a great course for beginners. I'm giving it 3 stars because most of the contents are outdated especially the bootstrap and Ajax. I'll suggest Coursera and the instructor to kindly update it. This will help learners focus more on the relevant and important aspect

I like the training provided and the instructor explains well, but the graded assignments with adjusting only parts of a much larger website is not the best way to test students' knowledge. It would be better to edit a simpler version of the final product.

All in all, it was a good course and practical and important material is presented in it. But in general, the time required to complete the course is a bit disproportionate to the material presented in it, and I think the time could have been used better.

The content till Module 4 is so amazing and well taught, but Module 5 was really tough and not well explained according to me could've been better. But Thank you for taking me from a complete beginner to learning the Basics of Front End Development.

It is no that perfect.

The instructor focus on explaining what the code do instead of implementing it in the same video.

I think the only downside is that he prepare his code and we can't implement the code at the same time because it is already given

Good to start with a minimum of ease in understanding, but explanations are often missing on the right points while insisting on obvious things. Coding live would help avoiding this issue. Often difficult to understand, while it is basics.

Week 4 and week 5 could have been more better with explanation for beginners, suggestion to use video or screenshot for assignment to be done, as what is expected is sometimes not clear from the problem statements

This course relies heavily on GitHub to upload your assignments, GitHub is not user friendly at all and I spent far longer trying to upload the assignments then actually completing them, it was very frustrating.

The course is average but the content has become obsolete now. The course is using BootStrap 3 which is not in use for 3 years.Also, the JS portion of how to use it while developing a website is very very less.

Great information, but it needs to be updated because none of the sources are the same as the videos. I spent more time on setup than actually taking the course so I decided to try another course.

As a noob to github, and the date of this tutorial. I can not keep up with the lesson if i have to figure out how to use git hub, because some of the features available the are not available now.

Html and css parts are perfect, but you won't learn much of javascript here. Ajax part was really difficult to understand. Also course needs to be updated because technologies are quite old

I think that this course should be longer, and with more practices. While it explains itself pretty well, I believe it should be spread, so that it can be taught in 2 months or so.

This course has been good till the 4th week, but in the 5th week the instructor was in hurry and things were not that clear as it should have been. Couldn't learn ajax properly

The Course helped me very much but anyone who wants to start should pay attention that this is a very basic course and a little of each technology is discussed.

This is a very nice course but it is outdated. The versions of bootstrap and jquery used here are too old. It would be nice if cousera updates this course.

other things are good but ajax parts and some JS lectures are not easy to understand for a beginner but those are difficult for intermediate guy like me.

Backdated content and as the course goes forward the instructor tried to bring a lot of contents without giving proper and understandable introduction .
