Learn JavaScript

JavaScript is the brains behind the internet, updating websites, running games, and so much more. This book teaches you the basics of coding in JavaScript by creating over a dozen Mini Apps.

The Mini App Plan

Learn about proper syntax, variables, and strings. Discover conditionals and loops. Explore arrays, objects, and functions.

Incorporate HTML and CSS to connect to JavaScript's inherent strength of working with webpages.

Share your creations with friends and family.

This Book

Learn standard coding concepts that stretch to any programming language.

To code, you only need simple text files. To test your code, you need access to an internet browser, but you don't need internet access. Chapter 1 covers the setup you need to get started.

This book is written by a middle school science teacher with over 18 years of experience working with kids. The format of the book is a step-by-step guide through the process with repetition, and contains all the code at the end of each section. A short JavaScript reference guide is also included, as well as an exclusive website.
