Coursera Announces Pilot Course On Pedantic Criticism Of Major JavaScript Frameworks

July 5, 2017


MOUNTAIN VIEW - In an attempt to modernize its course offerings, Coursera announced this week the upcoming release of "Client-side Controversy", its newest selection of online videos targeted at budding web developers looking to hastily form opinions about open source JavaScript frameworks. The series covers the most popular JavaScript frameworks - including React, Vue, Angular, Ember, Backbone, and Meteor - and all the reasons why each is perceived to suck by the community.

According to a company spokesperson, "Coursera is always looking for ways to engage users with the vernacular of the topic they are learning. In the case of modern frontend development, the dialogue takes the form of long-winded and adversarial gum flapping about aspects like performance, payload size, template separation, extensibility, data binding, and countless other arbitrary topics. This series is the product of our content development team's tireless efforts to distill the ceaseless squawking and saber rattling of various community factions into thirty half-hour videos."

Although the company's previous attempts at experimental pedagogy were less than encouraging, interest in the course is booming. Coursera indicates that the wait list for "Client-side Controversy" continues to grow, already exceeding ten thousand users. In response to this overwhelming demand, the company briefly hinted about similar course offerings already in the works - all of which will explain the argumentative zeitgeist of various programming communities.
