Stay away from this. There are better courses for beginners with instructors who do know React. As for Next, you will learn more from free on the excellent official tutorial (Nextjs site). Note to future self, a course thats 12+ hours long (this one is 30+) is always a waste of time. People who know their business go straight to the point without wasting you days.Finally, I wouldnt even bother to post a review if it wasnt for the instructor removing questions that he doesnt like. That lack of integrity in my world is unacceptable.

Bon cours, bien expliqu mme si c'est dommage que le projet Portfolio soit bas sur Next.js version 7 qui date un peu.

I enrolled in this class to learn about next.js but actually I intuitively learnt a lot of different topics. For example, you will learn how to debug your code, how to use chrome tools, advanced css, advanced react.js and much more. this is not just a next.js course, this will prepare you how to think as a software engineer.Filip is a great instructor. Since next.js-9 is released, he updated his course in 2-3 weeks as he promised. He explains everything in details and if you still have questions he answers your questions so fast. so if you are a dedicated student, by the end of this course you will be amazed by how much you improved yourself.

Amazing.. The lecture is in detail. but the course should mention that auth0 is included in this lecture.

Amazing course. Instructor is quite dedicated. In depth explanation about the concepts.Portfolio Project is very interesting.Worth it....!!

Fantastic portfolio building course with Next.js. The instructor is incredibly responsive.

Filip Jerga is very knowledgeable in what he was teaching. His explanations were clear and concise. I appreciated the organic approach to teaching where he showed his debugging process when things went wrong. Looking forward to the bonus content update!

Highly knowledgable, and more importantly (in my opinion) attentive/responsive instructor (a rarity these days!) and an incredibly in-depth course, I learnt a whole new bunch of stuff -stamina and patience required but well worth it!

Suitable for a student who has zero knowledge about react.js, instructor showing you every workflow step by step, I have a bit frustrating about the font is not big enough. If possible font size would be bigger than 18pt. Udemy please inform teachers about this matter thanks.

Not very useful course, because his english is hard to understand and the concepts behind next js are not very goog explained. Wouldn't recommend it.

a great application thus far, really clear and helpful as well as super easy to follow along!

Very good, ran in some troubles but Filip is very quick at responding to messages so it was very fluent!
