I was a student on this course and here is my experience and review: The coaching calls are overcrowded and you don’t really get to learn anything because to many people are trying to ask or answer questions at the same time whilst one of the Cp team members are covering an important topic and can't wait to the end for Q & A. The team has their notifications switched off on the slack channel so there is no way to reach them for feedback and the only way is during a coaching call which you can imagine everyone trying to get all their questions asked that they boiled up during the week,There should be various caching calls with less students on each call, I mean if they have nearly 2000 students in the course x the amount paid by each person then you should have enough capital to be able to have more coaching calls with less students instead of everyone cramming into a zoom call.There should be breaks in the coaching calls for Q & A and not interrupting the person that is presenting. (You end up losing focus).There are only in fact 2 coaching calls a week that are presented by the experienced CP team (Tuesdays and Thursdays). The other coaching calls are held by students who are only 5 or 6 months into the course who have no industry experience. I thought the success coaches would be either of the CP team members or people who are experienced. Their business model is built up on students helping students, I mean you can get the same slack community for less money, Andrei Neagoie's Zero To Mastery Academy or courses on Udemy also have a slack channel with an awesome community.I tried to do a 1 on 1 call with a success coach that the CP team provided for me, who I honestly thought worked for them and guess what... the guy didn’t pitch.I was really excited and woke up at 6am for the call which was scheduled for 6:30am, waited until after 7am and not even a courtesy email or message on slack that the guy couldn’t make it.

Please add clarity to your question if you expect any help. Currently it is a vague question.

Ameer Koorowlay No but what is your problem?

Continued... When I reported this to the support team, nothing came of it nor was there any effortmade from their side. I think that is where my motivation and excitement for the course ended. I did mention it in the feedback form that the coaching calls are over crowded but nothing came of it. I paid a lot of money for this course only to have the coaching calls and the course modules streamed to YouTube so don’t see the value that this course has to offer besides great marketing. Their course content is pre recorded videos and you can access their exercises for free on their GitHub account or watch their videos via their YouTube channel. Maybe you have had a better experience then me but that's just my experience and so I have decided to rather invest in a bootcamp. PS: I did get my money back, thank goodness. Is this course worth the money being spent, oh hell no!!!

"Profit with Javascript" has a very good program, especially for hands-on learning. From the beginning, they immerse you in Javascript and they aim you to have this mindset of that if you do your best effort then you will succeed. I'm a developer and I joined the program because I watched their YT videos and they seemed very impressive but when I enter their modules I saw topics mostly for beginners and things that I could find in any tutorial on YouTube. They have a very collaborative and supportive community in their Slack channel and the sessions with Qazi, Sonny, and Naz are excellent resources. You can attend these live sessions and you can make any question to the instructors which is something good and bad at the same time. Good because you can make all the questions you have but bad because the development of the sessions are too long because instructors answer all the questions people are making but sincerely those sessions are very good, especially for beginners. What seemed very weird to me and bothered me a lot was that those sessions were live on YouTube also, so I began to question why I had to pay to have access to resources that you can simply find in their YT channel. Something that also bothered me was that some modules are labeled as "Comming soon" even though they are part of the topics they publish as part of the program. My advice is, if you're a total beginner then this is a very good program. The instructors are very comprehensive and patient and the sessions with Naz are simply excellent. If you're not a beginner it could be beneficial for you but mostly because you could fill the gaps in your knowledge of Javascript. If you're a seasoned developer, unless you have curiosity then I'd recommend you to watch their YT channel. The best of their content is there and is free, at least for now. Best regards.

@Joe Smith Thanks for the info Joe. I'm curious about some of the modules you said are available on YouTube? Are those modules marked as unlisted? Is there a way for me to access those videos from you, like a link or something? I'd like to get their exercises too if possible. I want to do a free trial on their course on my own.
