Newbie JavaScript Lessons

Hello all!

I began JavaScript on Codecademy for the first time this week. So far, it seems as though we jumped right into the finer points of this lightweight programming language without having a broader, big picture understanding of JS first. I’ve been googling to get a better grasp and perspective. I came across a couple of resources I found to be helpful:

1. w3schools provides great beginner definitions and explanations in a written tutorial format. They also offer a handy results tab where you can play around with the code you just learned without having to install a text editor of your own.

2. thenewboston YouTube channel. Sure he’s a bit of a brogrammer, but it makes the tutorials more entertaining. Plus, his instructions and explanations are easy to understand and he’s helping me learn JavaScript, so who cares, right? 

I’m also seriously considering enrolling in Treehouse. Their fees are quite low and I’m hoping to give them a try for a month and see how it goes. Anyone out there using Treehouse to level up their skills?

Oh, I also got stung by a yellow jacket today. Good times.

About Nicole C.

Hi, I'm Nicole, and this is my story... After spending my entire adult life living in Los Angeles, I got a little antsy and did an 8 month stint in Austin Texas. I had some fun and earned some hard-won life lessons, but now I am back and I'm finally ready to call LA home. I just got married to a fun, sweet nerdy man last September, and we are going to start a family in the next little while. I'm a quirky artist who dreams of backyard dinner parties, crafting, cocktails and unicorns. I've also spent the last 15 years working in business administration, but it's time for a change. I am in the process of reinventing myself as a code princess, and launching myself into the much more promising and lucrative world of web development. I will settle for nothing less than the brightest of futures for me and my family, and I'm going to get there using my brains, determination, and Sass! Time to put on my big girl pants. Thanks for checking out my blog!
