Not to mention its applications in build workflows for projects of all sizes. This course will teach you all of that! Right from scratch with zero prior knowledge assumed. Though if you do bring some knowledge, you'll, of course, be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you. All topics and features of the course will be shown and used in these projects and so you'll learn about them in a realistic environment.

Here's what you'll learn in this course:

Online Education, Real-Life Success—that's what Academind stands for. Learn topics like web development, data analysis, and more in a fun and engaging way. Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields. As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
