Featured Review: JavaScript: Understanding The Weird Parts

Hailing from Cleveland Ohio, Anthony “Tony” Alicea has been programming since he was 12 years old (much like fellow Udemy instructor and developer Angela Yu) and started developing websites and web apps at age 16.

Once he graduated with a Computer Science degree from Case Western Reserve University, Tony went on as a Microsoft-certified software app developer and architect, database designer, & user interface designer. 


Anthony Alicea’s experience with modern tech is diverse, and includes tools and languages like such HTML5, CSS3, ASP .NET MVC, JavaScript, jQuery, KnockoutJS, AngularJS, NodeJS, LESS, Bootstrap, SQL, Entity Framework and more. 

His courses focus largely on the theoretical aspects of any given technology, and he believes that understanding any topic on a deep level allows students to properly learn it. This allows one to quickly solve problems in real-world settings, an invaluable skill!

With his breakout Udemy course JavaScript: Understanding The Weird Parts, this now-classic offering shows his knack for imparting more than just trivial examples. While that course is 11.5 hours (relatively short for most tech courses on Udemy), it’s one of the most engaging courses that requires frequent pauses to let the material sink in.

Anthony Alicea JavaScript Understanding the Weird Parts
Anthony Alicea’s JavaScript: The Weird Parts is a theoretical yet highly practical look at how the wild world of JavaScript works.

As Tony explains, “Examples need to be built on top of context, and once you have context, you can not only copy the examples you find, but adjust and improve upon them.” 

He welcomes students with the following message: “It is my pleasure and privilege to teach you. I hope you’ll come away knowing something you didn’t before, understanding at a level deeper than before, and feeling positive that you can accomplish what you’ve set out to accomplish. Thank you!”
