A complete hands-on, project-based course to help you master the brilliant Electron Framework in an easy and efficient way!

Traditional programming and coding are not only time consuming but also frustrating, especially with the different platforms that are currently one the market. This is why frameworks are a boon for developers who want to develop apps and websites for multiple platforms.

Electron is one of the most popular framework for designing and developing cross-platform and cross-browser apps that are dynamic and interactive in nature. The best part is that people don’t have to learn multiple different languages, as apps and websites can be built in Electron using JavaScript, HTML and CSS.

Electron was originally developed as a shell for the Atom Editor and from there has evolved to become one of the most popular cross-platform frameworks on the market. Electron allows the development of desktop GUI applications using front and back end components originally developed for web applications.
