Why this course rocks

Dropbox is a content and collaboration platform trusted by more than 500 million users and 300,000 teams. It also has an API which allows you to add Dropbox features to your apps, such as file storage, sharing, previews, and search.

One example of such an app is an expense organizer, which can help businessess prevent their receipts from turning into chaos. Each employee simply add their receipts to a Dropbox folder, and then the app takes care of organizing them.

In this course, you'll build this organizer app while learning the fundamentals of working with the Dropbox APIs. I'll It'll all be done in plain JavaScript, so no frameworks or libraries required. Along the way you'll also learn several ES6 concepts, like array methods and async/await functions.
