Become a capable developer who knows how to build anything you want

One of the most important things you have to be able to do as a developer, is to be able to build anything you want.

When you can build anything you want, doors begin to open up.

  • You’ll be able to get jobs anywhere.
  • You’ll be able to freelance if you want to.
  • And you may even be able to build businesses from the software you’re able to create.

The possibilities are endless, but the first hurdle you have to face… is to get good enough to be able to build anything you want to make.

I’m no longer afraid to show my work at job interviews because I have become much more confident in my JavaScript skills thanks to Learn JavaScript.

The course showed me a clear path to learning the language. It integrated theory into real-life projects and helped me stay focused and motivated while learning

Through Learn JavaScript, I learned that I’m actually capable of programming, and I’m not just a design, HTML, and CSS guy.

I’m only halfway through the course, but I was able to learn Vue in one and a half days, pass an interview test, and get a senior-level frontend development job.

Web development can be very easy, but most people have found it hard…

And it doesn’t have to be this way.

If you’re like most people, you feel that web development is hard primarily because of two reasons:

  • 😞 Most materials use jargons and abstract examples (like foo and bar) so you don’t fully understand what they’re teaching.
  • 😞 Most materials start out extremely easy, and they get too advanced too quickly.

Because of this, you still don’t really get how to build stuff even though you know some basics.

What you need is simple instructions that can bring you from beginner stage to an advanced stage — so you can thrive as a developer without relying on tutorials anymore.

Now, here’s a good pieces of news for you.

Because you have already done a lot of work (which is a good thing), it’s actually quite simple to help you learn how to build things.

Believe it or not, these things are very easy to build once you know what to do

Building things is easy when you understand what’s going on

If you know what’s going on, you will be able to use your knowledge to spot patterns and know things you may not know of now.

This is why all of us can do basic math. If you know 100 + 10 is 110, you will know 200 + 10 is 210 — even if you haven’t encountered the number 210 before.

The same is true in web development.

If you completely understood what’s going on every step of the way, you will be able to use your knowledge to build almost anything you can imagine — even if you can’t build them now.

Here’s how all advanced developers become advanced

We know our basics really well. We leave no gaps, and therefore nothing is able to stand in our way.

Unfortunately, it’s natural to get confused because most tutorials, courses, and schools skip steps when they’re teaching you.

When they skip steps, you’re forced to jump ahead and study something you weren’t ready for yet. Now, if you skipped steps and got confused, you cannot catch up without clarifying what got you confused in the first place.

But instead of stopping and helping you understand, most tutorials and courses simply move on and they end up leaving you behind…

In short, the “basics” that most courses and leave you with isn’t complete — they just handed you a few pieces of the puzzle, but they didn’t give you enough pieces to be able to complete the puzzle yourself.

  • ⚒️ This is why you don’t know how to build things.
  • 😵‍💫 This is why you can’t understand more advance stuff.
  • 🫣 This is also why you forget what you learned.

When you understand stuff, you don’t even have to practice — you’ll figure out how to build things automatically

We know this is true because we’ve experienced it ourselves.

You’ve experienced similar things before too.

Think of the last time you had to practice riding a bicycle

If already knew how to ride a bicycle, you don’t have to practice. You can just get up and ride it — even if you haven’t touched it for years.

If you’ve don’t know how to ride one, all you have to know is how to balance and how to turn. Once you know these things, you don’t have to practice because you won’t ever forget theses skills.

Coding is a skill too.

It may take a couple of tries to learn new tricks, but once you get the hang of it, you never forget it.

You won’t ever forget how code once you understand it

We aren’t the only people who have experienced this.

The people we have helped have also experienced similar things.

Zell explains things in a way that no other instructor has been able to do in my 15+ years of trying to “self-educate” in the world of Javascript.

He shows me how to use JavaScript theory to build real UI, then how to refactor my code with useful and modern techniques.

Thanks to the things I learned from the course, I have since refactored our style guide at work and I found the confidence to start a Vue project.

I used countless other books and courses before, but they did not give me the applicable knowledge I needed to be a solid frontend developer.

Zell’s courses are the only ones who gave me the knowledge.

Now I can build pretty much whatever I want from scratch, without relying on 3rd-party libraries.

Zell is a master at boiling down the complex into something understandable. The lessons are clear and best they are CONCISE. Each lesson is not overwhelming and not complicated.

I’ve gained confidence that I can not only learn the ins and outs of JS but that I can master it. JS has always seemed confusing and scary but I no longer feel that way thanks to Zell’s help.

Zell has a way of explaining hard stuff that makes it easy for me to understand.

I took part in an expensive boot camp and the experience was frustrating for me because they rush through so many topics without mastering them.

But Zell’s courses are different. I appreciate the text format and the self-paced form of studying and the text format which gives me as much time as I need to make sure the knowledge sinks in.

I’ve now regained my confidence and I know I have what it takes to be a great web developer.

Because we know what’s going on, we don’t have to practice by doing CodeKatas — they’re simply a waste of time…

Because when you practice CodeKatas, you’re just solving articifical problems that have no impact on your life.

So instead of wasting time on artificial problems, we “practice” by working on things we actually want to build or learn.

By doing this, we produce useful things and we gain skills at the same time. As you do this more, you’ll realize that you can solve most of these Kata questions without really trying.

The key is in understanding what you’re doing — and this, my friend, is simple once you get your hands on what we’re about to give you.

Zell is one of those rare people who commands tremendous knowledge and experience but remains humble and helpful.

They want you to know what they know, not just be impressed by it. In other words, Zell is a natural teacher. You’re lucky to have him because he feels lucky to be able to help you in your journey.
