The Essential Web Developer Course

This massive, free course covers full-stack web development using modern tools like HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Ruby on Rails.

The course begins with a deep dive into full-stack web development - you'll start by building a blogging platform to orient you with how web apps work. Then, you'll learn commonly used syntax for web languages like HTML5 and CSS3.

Finally, you'll put all of your skills together and build a "startup" called DevMatch - a complete end-to-end project composed of HTML, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, Ruby on Rails, Git, Bootstrap, e-commerce, and more. You'll learn how to code features found in sites like Facebook, Dropbox, and Salesforce by adding a user registration/authentication, user profiles, email notifications, image upload, and subscription membership billing, and more.

My courses have reached over 70,000 students and I've taught for General Assembly - one of the world's leading coding bootcamps. Before becoming a full-time teacher, I developed applications for companies like Coca-Cola, Toyota, Newell-Rubbermaid, and more. I'm self-taught like many programmers, and this is the course I wish I had when I was learning. - Your Instructor, Rob
