If you’re looking for a high-paying, creatively fulfilling, cutting-edge job in tech, learning JavaScript and the popular JavaScript library React, is the smartest move you can make.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to have previous tech experience to succeed in this Blueprint?

    Not at all! This blueprint is perfect for beginners with zero coding experience. You just need to have a basic understanding of computers and be able to upload and download files.
  • Should I have a Mac or a PC to take this course?

    The only thing you need is a computer with access to the web. You should be able to stream YouTube or Vimeo videos and download/upload materials like photos and documents. We recommend a Mac for your future career in tech as Macs tend to be the industry standard, BUT a Windows PC will work fine too.
  • How long will I have access to my Blueprint?

    Once you’ve completed payment for the course, you’ll have access to your Blueprint for LIFE.
  • What software will I need for the JavaScript Developer Blueprint and how much will it cost?

    You don’t need to have any special software before you start the Blueprint. We’ll introduce you to all the software or apps you need as you go through the course, and we do our best to minimize costs for our students by providing free alternatives, making sure you are aware of free trials, and offering you discount codes where they are available. The software used in the JavaScript Developer Blueprint is the Adobe Photoshop photography plan, which includes a 7-day free trial and costs $9.99 monthly thereafter. You will also need access to a hosting service, which will set you back about $12-15 per month.
  • Does this course cover JavaScript Libraries?

    Yes! This course covers using React JavaScript. React is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries out there and is expected to keep growing. Knowing React JS not only makes your job easier as a JavaScript Developer, it also makes you more employable!

Skillcrush Reviews

You don’t have to go back to school. You don’t need to be under 30, 40, or even 60. You don’t have to leave your job or take time off. You don’t even have to know a single thing about code—if you can download a file, you’re tech-savvy enough.

    I dove into my Front End Developer Blueprint in March and April while I was living in Europe, and then I returned home and started freelancing. Honestly, I didn’t even finish the Blueprint until November.... I was so busy taking on work that didn’t need it!
