I’ve finished the free Practical JavaScript course

Last Updated on

And I’m happy about it, so I thought I’d write a blog post.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here it is: a reminder.

The course itself is not that difficult, especially if you’ve written code in your lifetime. I understand some things better now (like what this means in a method) and I signed up for the advanced course (which is paid). I didn’t watch any of the new videos yet since I’ve been a little bit busy these days (with the RebelBio office hours and other things, like taking my girlfriend to Wonder Woman – the first movie we see in the cinema in Cork since we moved in).

I’m quite excited about the new course since it goes deeper on the subject of JavaScript. People that went through it really enjoy the fact that it teaches you to read code somebody else wrote, which is really helpful for me. I want to hack things around to create MVPs, so I need to be able to read the code and use bits and pieces to get my ideas to life in a short time frame.

Oh, and read this article from Derek Sivers. Combined with the “Quantity over Quality” article on my blog, it really made me think about writing more on this blog. So expect more :D


Photo: yes, that’s a badly taken photo of my monitor while watching one of the coding tutorial videos. I want to use more of my own photos (no matter the quality) instead of stock ones on this blog. And, yes, Ireland is colder than I’m used, ok? :D
