Have you always wanted to become an online web developer or JavaScript developer? With all the different programming languages out there it can be hard to find one to start off with yet alone find a good course that will show you how to learn the language effectively.

Because of all this I put together a JavaScript basics course that will show you as a complete beginner how to begin creating programs using JavaScript. This course is created for anyone brand new to web development, or simply for those who know HTML, CSS, or any other programming language but have never worked with JavaScript before.

JavaScript Basics
10 Lectures 30:30

In this lecture you are going to be given a very brief introductory to JavaScript as well as an introductory to what you will be learning throughout this course. There is a lot of material to cover and you will be doing a lot of programming throughout this course so it's important that keep moving on and studying the course materials.

We will briefly talk about the syntax of a JavaScript and give you a short outline of how the future lectures are going to be.

Welcome to the JavaScript for beginners course!

Preview 02:15

In this lesson we are going to get our hands dirty and YOU are going to create your very first program in JavaScript! Your going to probably be pleasantly surprised at how easy this is but don't worry things will get more advanced. For now you are just going to get a taste of what it feels like to program a few lines of code.

Preview 08:25

I've decided to create a list of some popular coding edits used for JavaScript development as well as many other popular online languages. I've divided this list into bot FREE and paid coding editors.

I've only shared with you the ones that I am familar using so if you would like to reccomend an editor that is not on this list please feel free to do so!

Preview 00:40

So you just created your very first program online and you got a kickass coding editor, I bet you are ready to go, but hold on. Let's look at JavaScript a little bit deeper and get a sense of how strong JavaScript really is and what others are doing out there in the field.

Of course you won't be able to make programs like these I've shown you here, YET, but eventually as you get more advanced there is really no limits to what you can do.

Preview 03:15

In this video I am going to show you how to access the downloadable files for each lesson as well as how to access external resources that I refer to in each lecture of the course!

A quick quiz going over the basics of Javascript and what you have learned in the first few lectures

JavaScript Basics
5 questions

So far we have been including our JavaScript directly into our HTML document which is fine but it's best to keep our JavaScript in an external file, just to keep things organized.

In this lesson I am going to show you how to create an external JavaScript file and connect it to your HTML document.

Preview 04:03

The JavaScript console can be used to help Debug our programs and fix any syntax errors that might be occurring in our programs.

We can also use the console to write handy notes or hidden messages that we can read when we bring up the console in our web browser.

What is The JavaScript Console

Alright so you learned quite a bit so far, its time for a challenge! I have a piece of code here that has a few syntax errors in it. Your job is to sift through the code and get our program working.

To complete this challenge make sure that you download the external files for this lesson and give it a go! If you are having troubles don't get frustrated. Join me in the next video and I will show you how to complete the challenge no problem!

JavaScript Console Challenge

In this lecture I am going to take your hand and walk you through how to complete the JavaScript console challenge step by step.

Don't worry if you couldn't complete this challenge on your own, the most important thing is that you are learning and getting better.

The Solution To The Problem

A summary of what you have learned so far.

In this lecture I am going to show you how you can ask for help if you need any extra assistance while working in the course or if you need some extra help with the course content.

Using Variables and Storing Information
8 Lectures 20:26

Variables are pretty important in JavaScript and you will be using them a lot, trust me! This is why it is very important that you have a good solid understanding of how variables work.

In this section of the course you are going to learn how to use variables and how we can make our programs even more advanced.

What is a Variable?

In order to work with variables effectively you need to understand how to assign names to your variables. Now there are a few rules that we need to follow as we do this but don't worry, I will show you everything that you need to know.

How To Assign Names To Your Variables?

We've worked with strings in this course already but lets dive a little bit deeper and learn more about them. We are also going to go over numbers as well and udnerstand why math is sooo important in JavaScript.

An Introduction to Strings and Numbers

Gathering input from a visitor allows your programs to become a lot more engaging for the user. In today's video you are going to be using the prompt(); command to gather text that a user inputs and use that information in your code.

How To Capture Input From a User

Combing strings in JavaScript sounds like it might be a little bit tricky, but don't worry its actually not too bad. It's going to look a little bit weird at first but eventually you will be able to quickly look at this code and put it all into place.

Combining Strings Together

Let's dive a little bit deeper and work even more with strings. There is a lot to cover here so lets get right into it!

Working With Strings in Further Details

Are you ready for the JavaScript variable coding challenge?! See if you can complete the challenge on your own and join me in the next lecture to see how its done.

The Variable Coding Challenge

Let's go over step by step the solution to the variable coding challenge.

Working With Numbers In JavaScript
5 Lectures 15:57

As a JavaScript developer you will be working with numbers a lot! In this lesson you are going to be introduced to numbers and how they work.

If math is not your thing do not worry, it's not as bad as you might think!

What Are Numbers

We do math a little bit differently in JavaScript. It's important to know how syntax for basic calculations as well as how to add numbers together with variables.

How We Do Math In JavaScript

The math object is a powerful tool in JavaScript that can do all kinds of basic and advanced math calculation. With the math object you can calculate pi, round numbers up and down and all kinds of cool things.

In this lecture you are going to learn how to use the math object in your programs.

Working With The Math Object

Are you ready for a challenge? The numbers challenge is going to be a little bit tricky but I'm sure you will be able to handle it no problem!

In this challenge you will be building a random number generator. Try to create the program yourself and if you need help join me in the next lecture and we will complete the project together :)

The Numbers Challenge

Here is the step by step guide to the random number generator challenge.

My name is Robin Haney, I am a professional Web Developer and blogger. I have been designing and building websites for over 5+ years. I work completely from home as a freelance web developer and I love it!

I'm also a best selling author on Amazon and have written a few programming books that have done really well. If you prefer a more hands on approach to learning then my video courses on Udemy will be perfect for you.

I'm here to show you how you can do the same. I've designed and created a lot of websites and I know its hard work but don't worry I've created my courses so that even beginners can easily follow along and work with me.

I've started my own online business at a young age and after being a best selling instructor on Udemy I am very proud of my courses. If you are just starting out then I'd recommend you look over my FREE courses first and then continue to my paid courses when you are ready.

Please enroll today and I look forward to seeing you!
