As the language of the web, it’s also extremely popular and there’s high demand for web developers with this proficiency. This makes it a great language for learning how to code — it’s a skill that’s guaranteed to hold its value for a long time.
You’ll be amazed at what you can create! Let’s get started.
And it’s a language that you’ll need to know and use at some point if you’re getting into web development.
What You’ll Need
A text editor is a program that you can use to write and edit code. There are many different text editors available, but we recommend using Visual Studio Code. It’s a free and well-loved editor that’s specifically designed for writing code.
This is one of our most popular full-length courses and we’ve just made it free with every SitePoint account. No subscription required.
The techniques that you’ll master will provide you with a foundation to go on and use in other languages, too. And each subsequent language you learn will be much faster to pick up. This effect is even more pronounced when you start with a great foundation in programming itself.
We’ll cover topics like variables, data types, loops, operators, functions, and objects. These are all key programming concepts you’ll find in other languages.
You’ll also learn how to work with the Document Object Model, which is basically a technical term for working with the elements on each page in a web browser.
In these courses, we’ll take you beyond the basics and teach you intermediate and advanced techniques that are used in modern, real-world web development.
