    Comments about oreilly Introduction to Modern Front-End Development:

    Hands down, the best front-end development course I ran across.

    This course cleared up a lot of confusion for me by the vast number of tools in use today by developers (Gulp, Grunt, Bower, Git, Npm).

    It's a little intimidating at first, but the author did a great job progressing step by step, explaining very well what goes where and why, so don't give up!

    I found that the tools required for the course are never mentioned in this depth on other courses. It can really help you out develop better code, work smarter (automated tasks with gulp, yeoman generators) and safer (version control with git + github).

    With that said, I would not recommend someone with no prior experience in HTML,CSS and Javascript to take this course.
    It's challenging enough to adapt the workflow incorporating new tools and project structure.

    This course is a gem tough for anyone who is ready to incorporate new tools under his/her belt and take a big step forward towards professional development.

        3 hours of finely crafted content that both challenges and guides the viewer to a practical, professional understanding of contemporary web development workflows, including the many tools and frameworks that, once understood, optimise the process in ways that render them invaluable for anyone serious about competing in a fluid and fast-moving ecosystem.
        The course project is relevant and well designed. The screen capture videos are well supported with informative slides and Adam's excellent narration.
        If you could benefit from a better understanding of contempory Front End Development methods and practices then this is the course for you!
