Git and Terminal

Terminal is an important tool for any developer, so it's high time for you to exercise basic commands! You'll start using a Git version control system, too.
4.8 – 5,972 reviews

JavaScript Basics Extended

On the basics stage we omitted a fascinating, but demanding concept: objects. We'll introduce you to them now, though not only — JavaScript still has a few aces up its sleeve!
4.9 – 8,052 reviews

HTML + CSS Advanced

Back at HTML and CSS already, now to explore flexboxes, BEM, Sass, grids, and events. Once done, you'll code your very own landing page.
4.9 – 7,448 reviews

JavaScript Advanced

Having mastered the fundamentals, we're free to take on the advanced issues. So, brace yourself for methods, closures, prototypes, constructors, classes, and... something extra.
4.8 – 5,378 reviews

React

Chooo chooo, next station: component-based development, and one of the most popular library in the front-end realm, React. We'll learn how to combine it with TypeScript, too!
4.7 – 6,837 reviews

TypeScript Basics

In professional terms: TypeScript is a JavaScript superset. In human terms: it's JavaScript modified for more versatility and comfort. We'll go through, i.a., object types and classes.
4.8 – 5,926 reviews

React with TypeScript

Get acquainted with the magic of TypeScript in React.
4.7 – 5,265 reviews

Redux

If JavaScript with React and TypeScript already feel like a small Lego set, good news! There's a fourth brick to play with, a library, Redux, helpful in app state management. Let's take a look.
4.8 – 5,182 reviews

How the Web Works

We interact with the Internet day by day, and yet, few know how it all works. If you don't, either — we've got your back. We'll explore the OSI model, HTTP, encryption, APIs and security issues.
4.8 – 5,752 reviews

Algorithms and Data Structures

Don't go running just yet, algorithms simply need some taming. Data structures, too: we'll take on arrays, linked lists, stacks, queues, hash maps and sets... among other things.
4.8 – 4,597 reviews

Object Oriented Programming

Object-oriented programming is a concept fundamental to many programming languages, most notably: Java, Python, JavaScript and C++. So — let's acquire a good understanding thereof.
4.8 – 5,824 reviews

Vue.js

Learning by doing is our favorite technique here at Mate, and this module is no exception. You'll learn the Vue.js framework by using it to build a ToDo App. How cool is that?!
4.8 – 5,837 reviews

Angular

Angular is a JS framework used mostly to create scalable, sing-page web apps. We'll learn how to use it, beginning with forms through components, observables, state management, and more.
