JavaScript is essential to learn if you want to be a front end developer. Wesbos is one of the most popular teachers of JavaScript in the world. He is also a self-taught developer and you can read his interview with tips on learning to code here.

Why take this course?

You'll learn the fundamentals of JavaScript. On the job, most companies will require you to learn a modern library or framework like React, Angular or Vue. However, to properly understand these you need to learn how to use JavaScript properly instead of diving into things like React.
