Not Worth the Money I received a scholarship to complete this nanodegree for free, but it had to be completed within 3 months and I have one project left before I graduate as of writing this review (I will finish and graduate). So, trying to complete it in 3 months does affect my review at least somewhat,...

Good idea but fail at teaching the materials

What Udacity did was selected partial videos from different subjects that they created 5 years ago and wrap them into a what they call it nanodegree. Most of the information is outdated. They give you basic feedback on your project without telling you what is wrong with your code (just positive feedback mostly).

Awesome program, short and effective, and oriented towards helping you get a job! All in all, I did 6 years of traditional college before realizing that this way of learning was really working out for me. I completed the Udacity nano degree program in April 2015, and I couldn't be happier! Most of...

One of the most comprehensive online programs available.

The front-end nanodegree was an excellent program, and I'm very satisfied with the experience. The program requires you complete several projects. In order to be better able to complete the projects, you are provided with coursework although it's not required to go through the course materials. What I liked most about the program is that you must submit your projects and in return you get feedback. I was surprised when I would submit projects and learn that it did not meet requirements. The feedback helped me improve on the project and that's very valuable. As far as concepts covered, we went through HTML, CSS, an extensive overview of JS, to even the concepts of using a JS framework.

Great way to learn what currently is in demand

I graduated from Udacity FEND program in May, it was a cohort of October 2014. It's project based program, so at the end of my study I've got 6 solid projects which you could only pass if you follow the guidelines, validate your code, keep is commented and etc. The program is intense and requires selfstudy and discipline. There is a forum where you can talk to the students fellows, there are available coaches and you can have one-to-one appointments and there are guides, who motivate you while you're learning. I tremendously improved my skills in JS (which was my initial goal) and I'm proud to show my work to potential employers.

Best choice for no software development experience person

If you have few software development experience or you can not find a person to teach you in person, this nanodegree is the best choice to learn web application development (front -end). The videos and analogy will help you understand the code, api, and libraries better. Comparing with the full-stack nanodegree, this is very easy.

If you have much experience in software development experience but not in web application area. This may not a good choice. You will feel some videos waste the time. And most of the projects already have at least the skeleton. Not many code need to be written.

A superb Front End Dev course in the market !

I'm in the middle of the course and I've learned A LOT OF things. The best thing about this is course is that you will get to learn modern front end concepts. They will also provide you free resources that will help you to hone your skills . The course is quite updated and even if you have any doubts regarding any topics then either you can ask for the help directly or you can share it on their forums , and they will respond you within an hour. People in the forums are very friendly and have helped me a lot of times.

From basics to portfolio

The FEND is a great intro into web development that also covers advanced and nuanced topics towards the end. It was of 5-star quality when I went through it, and I imagine it can only get better. Udacity's staff is top-notch and they are constantly adjusting and improving the student experience. You'll leave this nanodegree with an awesome portfolio of projects--from a Frogger clone to a Google-maps enabled app.

Udacity Front End Nanodegree

I really liked the nanodegree. It helped become a programmer! I loved that they have a high standard, and that you have to meet or exceed the standard. Also, they have numerous office hours and one-on-one coaching. There is also an active community, both online and sometimes offline hackathons and meetups.

Great program, but not as extensive as I thought it would be

I had a little prior knowledge of WebDev, but wanted to get a solid foundation. The material given in this Nanodegree is well-produced and good in many ways. It is however a bit on the thin side.

They recently updated the course.

Much more javascript.

Lots more ES6.

Lots more workflow/CLI lessons.

Add in a few frameworks they weren't teaching before.

They pretty much double-beefed up the course.

Super happy about it.
