01 | Introduction
Get an introduction from Bob, as he kicks off the course, sets expectations, and gives you a little guidance for the road ahead.
02 | Setting Up the Development Environment
See how to install Node and Visual Studio Code, and learn why you need each. Watch as Bob writes a first tiny line of code to make sure that the installation is ready.
04 | Variables
Learn what variables are and how to declare, initialize, set, and get values from them.
05 | Data Types
06 | Type Coercion and Conversion
07 | Expressions and Operators
Learn how to spot a well-formed expression and how to compose expressions through the combination of operators and operands.
08 | Arrays
Watch as Bob demonstrates how to use arrays, how to add/remove elements of an array, how to access elements of an array using the index, how to get the number of elements in an array, and more.
09 | Function Declaration
Get an introduction to functions, as Bob shows you one way to define a function, how to call the function, how to pass parameters into a function, how to return values from a function, and more.
10 | Function Expressions
Sometimes a function declaration is more than you need. Get details in this lesson, as Bob demonstrates how to use a function expression and how to create an immediately invoked function expression.
11 | Decision Statements
Learn how to add logic to your applications by testing conditions using if / else statements, switch / case statements, and the ternary operator.
12 | Iteration Statements
Watch as Bob introduces the For and While statements, which enable you to loop through lists of values and perform operations on them.
13 | Basics of Scope
Hear an explanation of the notion of the lifetime of variables and their reach into other code blocks, in this discussion of scope.
14 | Returning Functions from Functions
15 | Object Literals
Objects contain properties and functions that describe attributes of the object and its behavior, respectively. Watch as Bob demonstrates how to create object literals.
16 | Module Pattern and Revealing Module Pattern
Learn how to introduce variables and functions without leaving an unnecessarily large footprint on the global scope.
17 | Closures
Closures allow developers to bind functions to their execution context, including variables, so you can build specialized versions of functions. Learn how closures work and how to create them.
18 | this Keyword
19 | Destructuring
20 | String Template Literals
Learn about the new string template literal syntax to enable string interpolation, multi-line string formatting, and more.
21 | Regular Expressions
Working with string data, Bob explains how use regular expressions to determine such things as whether a string matches a specific pattern or whether an instance of the pattern exists in a string.
