What you'll learn

Today's JavaScript programs are larger and more complex than ever. In this course, Flowtype Fundamentals, you will learn how to handle this growing complexity by gradually creating a strong, static type system for a JavaScript codebase. First, you will learn the value of types in general. Next, you will explore the fundamental types of Flow in action as you start a small project from scratch. Finally, you will discover how you can add types to a preexisting JavaScript codebase and how that can affect the experience. By the end of this course, you will feel prepared to use Flow as a tool to increase your confidence in your own JavaScript projects.
