Ready to take your web development skills to the next level? We’ll show you how in our new course: Learn Build Tools.

Build tools are used to create professional-grade web applications. And there’s a reason why engineering teams love them: Not only do they make your code more efficient, but they also help improve loading speeds and portability.

Most companies use build tools to optimize their web applications and content, but many developers don’t even hear about them until their first day on the job. With Learn Build Tools, you’ll get hands-on experience with the processes and concepts professional developers use every day.

Who is this course right for?

This course is perfect for learners who are already familiar with front-end development (e.g., HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Node.js) and want to learn how to optimize their projects. It’s also great if you’re currently job hunting and need an edge over the competition. Or, if you’re already established in your field, this course will improve your understanding of your company’s build processes.

What will you learn from this course?

In this course, you’ll learn how to use tools like Webpack, esbuild, Parcel, and Vite. You’ll also learn about linting, browser compatibility, transpilation, and more. By the end of the course, you’ll have a greater understanding of:

  • Professional best practices for deploying web content.
  • Build tools and their place in the web development ecosystem.
  • Portability and performance issues and their mitigation techniques.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out Learn Build Tools!
