Who is this course for?

Anyone looking to learn web development.

Seasoned web developers looking to add another tool to the toolbox.

Those sick of over complicated CRUD apps.

What's wrong with a single page application framework (next, nuxt, sveltekit, ...etc)?

These are all great web frameworks, but you should pick the right tool for the job, often a fully fledged framework is overkill (probably most cases).

By learning one of the mentioned frameworks your learning a very specific way of doing things, sometimes a single page application may be the best option, maybe not.

Many things you will learn here will transfer to your next web project, regardless of the framework you use.
