About This Class

26800b2c

This ambitious hands-on, step-by-step course by Dr Alex Davidovic takes you from your first programming steps to becoming a JavaScript guru. The material is divided into bite-size chunks, and as soon as you master the programming fundamentals, the building blocks and the ways to control the program flow, you start "swimming in the deep water" and take aim at the advanced concepts such as recursion (a function calling itself) and working with objects.

You learn how to animate text and images, capture the mouse, keyboard and other events, direct the execution of the program, and more.

Dr. Davidovic is clearly very knowledgeable about js and his lectures are easy to follow along with. Sometimes the text is hard to read in the videos but if you follow his voice it is easy to follow the logic of what is going on. I think its definitely helpful to have built some projects and have some experience using javascript before taking this course as he dives into the subjects very quickly. I am using this course as a review of concepts and to brush up on my foundation of js. If that is what you are looking for in the course I def recommend it.

Dr Alex Davidovic

Envisage. Devise. Inspire.

Dr Alex Davidovic is the father of 2, an author and a web publisher.

His book "Underdog Marketing: Enrich Your Reputation, Fashion Free Publicity and Wrestle Your Market Share from the Top Dogs" has helped thousands of people in the start-up phase of their business to become the media magnets, carve up their market share against the already established and cashed-up competitors, and lift their enterprises off the ground.

The "Computer Programming for Kids" and "Learning Recursion through JavaScript" courses by Dr Alex are used by children as young as 12 to learn to program, in the classroom settings or at home. Ever since completing his PhD in Computer and Information Science on the topic of adaptive tutoring systems, Dr Alex has been applying the results of his research to make learning complex concepts so easy that even children get to master them.

Over one million people use the software developed by Dr Alex and his company C Point Pty Ltd:

  • Antechinus C# Editor, the first-ever integrated environment for the C# programming language
  • Antechinus JavaScript Editor, which is used by web designers and programming students alike
  • Antechinus Animator Professional, for creating stop-motion animations
  • ...and 300+ other major software projects.

Dr Alex publishes two online magazines:

  1. Gifted Child Magazine, and
  2. FAME Magazine for guitar learners (FAME stands for Fast Acoustic-guitar Mastery by Example)

Another passion of Dr Alex is chess. He is an International Chess Master, who competed in two Chess Olympiads, in Manila (Philippines) in 1992 and Elista (Kalmykia) in 1998, playing the total of 20 games for the Australian team and only losing one, either winning or drawing all other games. Following Dr Alex's teaching methods, many of his chess students achieved extraordinary results, including one World Champion under 20 and over 10 adult or age-group national champions.
