Fantastic description and deep insight.

Too bad some of the content is either in the wrong order making it difficult to follow or just wrong... the automatic tests also need fixing..

Pros: Fast and basic, semi-superficial introduction to all sides of the language Give you the links to go deep as you want Teaching concepts via illustrations and beautiful analogies

Cons: Instructor is robot-like, no wonder he is working for Mark Zuckerburg

This was a good course. Though the last two weeks felt a bit rushed in terms of practice and the level of the assignments seemed to rise steeply suddenly which made it more time-consuming. Other than that it was a very detailed and well explained course!

Great work was made to issue this course. It promotes knowledge's in programming paradigm, describes special things for JS, gives you additional resources to investigate. Wish there will be more practice with assessment for unit testing and logic tasks.

The course was full of information that I know I would return to some of the videos again in the near future. The hands-on assignments are really helpful in understanding the concepts. After the course, you will feel you made a big step in Javascript.

Really enjoyed this course. Even though I had some JS knowledge before, it introduced concepts I haven't thought about before, such as testing or classes. The meta staff does a great job at explaining all the concepts in an easy to understand way!

I appreciate the amount of information covered succinctly here. It works well as an introduction. I don't think the exercises are complex or in-depth enough to get a real sense of working with these concepts but again, it is a good intro.

The course is rich with general programming and specific JavaScript concepts. The instructor speaks clearly and explains each concept thoroughly. The further reading sections are also full of other material to enhance your JS skills.

allows you to understand the fundamentals however isnt as flexible or creative as I would have wanted it to be and would prefer a more dynamic and collaborative course

The course is fantastic. However, - it would be nice if there would be a bit more about testing and possibly a bit more about using modules. Despite of this course gives a very solid foundation for JavaScript probramming.

for an introductory course, it is more than OK. Still, the case studies(assignments) could have been more related to professional work. Each course should end with a capstone project that we can add to our github pages.

Overall a great course, however, the instructions for the labs need a bit more description about the required format for output. In all cases my code was fine, but jiggering the output format was more trial and error.

This introduction to Javascript was one of the best I have ever seen. Just really wonderful, and the introduction to Test Driven Development and the Jest Framework are worth it, let alone the great labs and exercises.

Great course, if you don't practice JS you won't learn it as good, but the course is a great foot in the door in terms of learning JS, now you should practice it in real life and create projects for your own benefit.

Assignments verification process must be improved. Sometime you write all the code in right way, but the software give you error (fail) because there was white space between variables, functions, statements, ect..

The course is so well structured, covering all the concepts of javascript basics . Will indulge you in learning and make it fun to learn new concepts.

Some errors need to fix in the assignment part.

Great learning for someone that doesn't have enough money to take bootcamps but wanted a systematic learning from a known tech company such as Meta. Thank you for such a great course.
