If you like learning by building projects and want lots of hands-on practice, you’ll love this course. Scrimba’s methodical approach to teaching concepts means you’re practicing something right after learning it, and then putting everything together into a project. Over the span of the course's four parts, you build 8 projects - 4 of them entirely on your own.
Sometimes the exercises provide a bit too much hand holding, veering more to "recreate what I just did" rather than "practice that technique to solve a new problem." Not a dealbreaker, but be aware our reviewer skipped sections late in the course to get to the more challenging bits.
The course will take longer to complete than the listed runtime, in order to complete the projects.
You can take the entire course for free, but we highly recommend purchasing a Pro subscription for a month or two while going through this course in order to get a certificate, full access to the community, and code reviews. Scrimba is one of the few platforms that has made their community truly valuable.

Our course reviews are conducted by a team of technical professionals, course developers, and lifelong learners.
The lead of this project, Brian Green, has worked in developer education since 2009. He built the content development teams at Pluralsight and Udacity, implementing quality standards and tutorials to improve course quality and working with hundreds of authors to create courseware. Most recently, he built the product team at App Academy. As of writing, he estimates he has spent nearly a year of his life taking or reviewing online courses, on topics ranging from Web Development, Networking, Server Administration, DevOps, Cybersecurity, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
