Description

This course will present the student with the core programming concepts using JavaScript. The course will start with variables and move on to basic operators then function/methods will follow. Branching covers if / else / else if and switch statements. Looping covers four basic loops in JavaScript. Object oriented programming covers both before and post ECMAScript 6 detentions of a class. The two last sections cover JSON, Array, Object data structures and String, Date and Number built-in data types.

Once competed the student should be able to understand not only the basics of JavaScript but other programming languages as well. Concepts covered in this super quick course should be enough to let the student follow bit more advanced courses that I teach.

Who is the target audience?
  • Someone new to programming.

Hardware & Software Engineer

I started working with programming and technology way back in the 90's when a 200 MHz Pentium 1 was a speed demon; things sure have changed since. As programming and hardware matured over time so did I working with it. This gives me a unique prospective on what it is that really matters when it comes to programming. Over the years I have seen a few technologies come and go but a few basics have stayed and I am sure those basics will be with us a 100 years from now. I hope that as you take my courses I can relay those basic truths to you. A programming language is nothing more than a tool, like a hammer to a carpenter; it is not the hammer that makes quality furniture but the carpenter.  Over the course of my career I have worked on many different projects, which led me to work with many programming languages from C/C++, C#, php, JavaScript/JScript, asp.net, python, Lua to name just a few.
