Learn Javascript By Building Projects (for free!)

This week, I have just released a free, project based Javascript course.

Fun Javascript!

The course is aimed at beginners, and currently included 6 projects to see how HTML, CSS and Javascript all fit together.

Although I do explain as we go, the intention is to just jump in and build things, to give beginners a portfolio of projects they can use, modify and reference in the future.

What will you build? Let's take a look.

Project 1- Quick Tip (tip calculator)

Project 2- Running Tracker App

Project 3- Guess The Number Game

Project 4- Number Match Game

Project 5- Photo Effects App

Project 6- Music Player App

This course is completely free, and the project can be taken at your own pace, in any order.

Hope you enjoy!

Used your website. The content is great. I stuck on the password validation error for a while. Please highlight the error if signup has so that user can catch it. Your validation error just changes paragraph which is no much eye catchy. Otherwise all else is great.

If you know basic CSS and HTML, can you learn basic JavaScript doing JUST projects? Without following chapter by chapter books or Udemy tutorials?

Although basic js is recommended, I don't see why you could not pick it up as you go. Give the first project a try and see how you go!

Talk about amazing content and all for free, fair play Chris! Most creators wouldn't put so much time and effort into a course like this and then give it away for free. *tips hat ❤️

Is it possible to learn JavaScript just by doing projects?
