Frequently asked questions

Are credit card payments secure?

Yes! All credit card payments are managed directly through Stripe, an online payment processor considered "the standard" when it comes to accepting online payments. Your credit card never actually touches any part of the chriscourses.com server—it is encrypted and managed directly by Stripe which has strict protocols in place to ensure your card is always secure.

How often are new videos released?

At least one video is released every week. I strive to produce one video every free-day I have. At the moment, I typically have three free-days per week, meaning I get about three solid videos out every week, equating to twelve videos a month.

What courses are up and coming?

Beginner courses on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are in production now (May 1, 2020), and are expected to be fully complete by June 15, 2020. Courses on Three.js, Vue, Nuxt, and Node will come shortly after. The goal is to create a comprehensive pathway of courses that guides and teaches students the skills they need to become professional web developer.

Will you still be releasing videos on YouTube?

Yes, for sure. Much of my absence has been due to developing the initial infrastructure and premium videos for chriscourses.com. My goal has always been to keep education as free as possible, and I'll continue to release free content here, and on my YouTube channel.

Who is Chris?

My name is Christopher Lis, I'm a full-stack developer with seven years of professional experience.
