Published on

There was a time when the word JavaScript reminded developers about form validations or adding animation in web pages. However through time, Javascript has grown to be one of the most popular languages in the development world with its implementation usage in back-end and front-end development. With the rise of Javascript front-end frameworks such as AngularJS, React JS or VueJS, as well as the invention of cross-platform mobile development frameworks such as React Native, Native Script, Javascript once again has proved its popularity and ability to become the most powerful language that truly breaks the platform barrier and allows developers to solve problems in various platforms.

  24. 24. The example road to become JS Fullstack developer Source:
  25. 25. Where do I start? You can learn everything from … GOOGLE :) Get started with these first ➔ Best place to learn the basic ➔ 30 day vanilla JS coding challenge ➔ Quick and easy place to test your JS codes ➔ Jump on Google for more specific framework learning :)
  26. 26. Once you learn the basic, try this cool open-source project... The mother of all demo apps - The Realworld project - a replicate of clone which is built in different frameworks. Source:
