Overview

Responsive web design is all about creating the best user experience regardless of whether a user is accessing your site from a desktop computer, a mobile phone, or a tablet. This Specialisation covers the basics of modern full stack web development, from UX design to front-end coding to custom databases. You’ll build foundational skills in a full range of technologies, including HTML/CSS, Javascript, and MongoDB, and you’ll learn to implement a reactive, multi-user web application using the meteor.js framework. We’ll also touch on more advanced topics, such as APIs, data visualization, and animation. You will add several projects to your portfolio to demonstrate your skill and growth throughout this Specialisation. You will create web pages using basic elements to control layout and style, use responsive web design principles to take a site from wireframe to website, implement security features, and create collaborative multi-user experiences. Just like any professional full stack web developer, you will build accessibility and usability into your responsive websites.

Phenomenal web application series

First, I'll start by saying that I did not do the capstone, but completed all courses leading up to the capstone.

This specialization is absolutely extraordinary, it starts off in the first class covering the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and though it's fast, just enough is covered for you to be able to take the information and run with it. This is the theme of the specialization too, they give you just enough information to push your creativity as far as you'd like.

Things do change when you hit the 'examples' class, as by this point you already have all the skills you need to build some very impressive web applications. The 'examples' class is more about covering a lot of different topics very quickly, so you can get a taste of some of the more specialized things you can do.

All in all I am very pleased with this specialization.

Great explanations for beginners

Completed all the videos and assignments (without the capstone project).

The material is very well organised and explained in a very clear manner.

I enjoyed the assignments, the peer reviews and the forums because they were very helpful but not too overcrowded so that you can't follow what's being posted.

Great point to start delving in web programming concepts.

not for beginners

class was pitched as a beginner class. I could get through the html and css part fine, when the javascript started, it was too much too fast with not enough explanation (for my level.) dropped out. will be trying Lynda.com next.
