This course covers methods for organizing your code, both conceptually and literally. You’ll learn the importance of separating concerns when writing JavaScript, gaining hands-on experience along the way. Separating concerns can be done with or without an organizational library or framework. We’ll learn how to separate concerns without one, and then we’ll explore an organizational library together. You’ll also learn strategies for exploring other libraries and frameworks on your own.

By the end of this course, you’ll understand (from experience) the importance of code organization, and how to implement it with either vanilla JavaScript or an organizational library or framework. Your applications will start looking clean and professional—not just to your users, but also to anyone who looks at the code driving your applications.

Why Take This Course?
Many developers dive right into projects without thinking of the organization or structure of the code they’re writing. It's easy to hack projects together, but the best developers spend the extra time to think about the organization of their application and adhere to sound organizational practices.

In order to write clean code that will get you your next job or promotion, you'll need to have a solid understanding of organizational techniques, and you'll need to implement those techniques in your projects. Software developers who write clean and organized code are surprisingly hard to find, so if you can master code organization you’ll be a step above the rest.

A great course if you've been writing spaghetti JavaScript code for a while (like I did) and wish to learn better code organization.
