There are as many methods for creating on the web as there are creators to build them. But no matter what programming language or venue is a coder's particular arena of choice, it never hurts to have the cross-disciplinary skills to try other avenues if needed that may better serve your app or web experience.
That's easier said than done, of course…and requires some extra study hours. To help, we put together 10 current deals on coding packages that can get you up to speed on virtually all the most popular programming languages.
Across eight courses and 44 hours of training, you'll get up-close and personal with ReactJS, the popular Java library of pre-built elements that make your websites and apps more responsive and appealing to your users.
