re: Best Resources To Start Into Learning Web Development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, NodeJS) VIEW POST


Great list! However, as a beginner I found myself often captured in what's known as the tutorial swamp. Udemy courses are a nice way to get some first grasps about a certain topic, but for digging deeper into the concepts behind that and to gather real experience & expertise, I heavily recommend to use text-based resources to extract useful informations for building your own projects. I certainly can across FullStackOpen and think it's one of the very best resources for advanced web development!


Hey Louis,

thanks for your opinion.
Nowadays, I go straight to the docs of the stuff I want to learn, because usually I get some insights about the problem (and the solution) the author wants to solve.

I discovered Full Stack Open the other day and I really like it, because it is up-to-date (e.g. React Testing Library). I don't like that it is text-based, because in my experience this leads to a lot of copying & pasting of finished code, without actually typing and thinking about the code.

I'll definitely take a closer look at it.


Louis just want to a massive thank you for posting fullstackopen here.
Without your suggestion i would have most likely never have found such a well presented and up to date resource.
It's an absolutely fantastic I've spent last few hours totally engrossed in the content.


You're welcome, that's what DEV is all about! 😊
