Upcoming Courses in JavaScript: Vote with Your Comments

During the past year I have released what I perceive are the two most time consuming courses to develop: Learn Modern JavaScript: Getting Started and Learn Modern JavaScript: Advanced Topics.

Since the release of the Advanced Topics course I have been hard at work on adding a section to that course on functional programming concepts as well as a new course on regular expressions. And now I have begun to think about what courses should come next, and I would like your input. Here are a list of some of the courses sitting in the wings. (You can get a full list of upcoming topics here.)

  • Full course on functional programming concepts in JavaScript. Functional programming is the talk of the town in JavaScript. And it is important to know these topics.
  • Asynchronous Coding. This course is an important piece in the Learn Modern JavaScript series. These are critical topics that need to be tackled.
  • Using Node and Express. I have stayed away from node in my JavaScript courses because I think it is important to learn JavaScript on the browser side. I feel I need to add this course in order to fill in the knowledge of how JavaScript can be used.
  • jQuery. Yes, jQuery is not the darling child anymore, but it is still used extensively, so it is important to know how to use it effectively.
  • JavaScript Frameworks and Libraries. There are numerous topics here, but those that seem to drift to the top are Vue, React and Angular.

So which topics are most important to you? Let me know in the comments sections.
