I thought I could make a series to review some online courses about front-end development, angularjs, UX-UI design, photoshop, illustrator, and more!

 

Before I participate in a course I always read the comment section but sometimes it’s not enough, and I feel like I want somebody to give me his honest opinion about it, and that's what I want to do with this series called "Reviewing online tech courses".

 

I am reviewing courses from well-known, free or paid, self-paced or not, online educational platforms like Udemy, Udacity, Coursera, Edx, Codecademy. The duration and level of each course may vary. Some of them provide a certification for free (e.g Udemy), other sources provide the lessons for free but you have to pay for the certification (e.g Edx), and others do not provide a certification.

 

Disclaimers:

  1. I have never been paid to review a course and I don’t gain anything from reviewing them.

  2. I only review courses that I have participated in and completed at least 95% of them.

  3. The order I am presenting them is randomly
