JavaScript Basics

JavaScript is a programming language that drives the web: from front-end user interface design to backend server-side programming, you'll find JavaScript at every stage of a website and web application. In this course, you'll learn the fundamental programming concepts and syntax of the JavaScript programming language. What you'll learn

  • What JavaScript is and where it is used
  • Basic programming concepts like variables, data types and conditional statements
  • What functions are and why they're useful
  • How to troubleshoot programming problems
  • The basic syntax of the JavaScript programming language

Introducing JavaScript Learn about the most popular scripting language on the planet. The language that drives millions of interactive websites, powers fast web servers and can even be used to build desktop applications. In this stage, you'll create your first JavaScript program and learn how to troubleshoot your programming mistakes. Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Learn how to use variables to store information that changes during a program, like a score in a game, or a sales total. You'll also learn about different data types in JavaScript like string, numbers and boolean values. Working With Numbers Numbers are everywhere in programming. You use them to track a player's score in a game, to calculate the cost of shipping a product, or just to count the number of times a "Like" button was clicked on a page. In this section of the course, you'll learn how to do basic math in JavaScript. Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Conditional statements let you control the "flow" of your program. They let you run different code based on conditions in your program. Creating Reusable Code with Functions JavaScript functions are a powerful tool that let you create re-usable chunks of code. They make programming faster, easier and less error-prone. They are also one of the most important concepts in JavaScript programming.
