Learn JavaScript from Scratch: The Ultimate Beginners Course

Learn JavaScript from Scratch: The Ultimate Beginners Course

Learn modern JavaScript programming fundamentals with practical hands-on training.

Welcome to the – Learn JavaScript from Scratch: The Ultimate Beginners Course. This practical, hands-on course was created for newbies – that’s to say, people with no prior training or knowledge with JavaScript or Web Development. In this practical, hands-on class you’re going to learn how to use JavaScript and go from beginner to expert! Even if you already have some experience, or want to learn about the advanced features of JavaScript, this course is for you!

In this class you’ll learn:
  • JavaScript coding basics
  • VS Code & Extensions
  • Common Console Errors – Syntax, Type, Reference
  • How GitHub works
  • Single/Multi-Line Coding
  • Execution Context Object
  • How to work with Variables
  • How to work with Operators
  • String Manipulation
  • Number Manipulation
  • Boolean Logic & Control Flow
  • Truthy/Falsy values and Equality Operators
  • If/Else Statements, nesting if/else

Blending practical work with solid theoretical training, we take you from the basics of JavaScript through to mastery. While the theory is important, we understand that it can also be dry and uninspiring. For this reason, this course is packed with examples that you can follow step by step.

This class gives you foundational training on JavaScript so you can increase your coding skills and start pursuing a career in a field that is increasingly in demand as the global reliance on technology grows. JavaScript is a programming language used to make web pages interactive. It is what gives a page life—the interactive elements and animation that engage a user. If you’ve ever used a search box on a home page, checked a live baseball score on a news site, or watched a video, it has likely been produced by JavaScript. What makes JavaScript great is that it’s not necessary to know how to write it to use it in your web code. You can find plenty of prewritten JavaScripts for free online. To use such scripts, all you need to know is how to paste the supplied code into the right places on your web page.

Despite the easy access to prewritten scripts, many coders prefer knowing how to do it themselves. Because it is an interpreted language, no special program is required to create usable code. A plain text editor like Notepad for Windows is all you need to write JavaScript. That said, Markdown Editor might make the process easier, particularly as the lines of code add up.
