Codecademy: Completed JavaScript “Getting Started with Programming”

Yeah!!! I had completed my first course on JavaScript Programming on “Getting Started with Programming”. As you can see the picture attached, my next lesson is actually a project called FizzBuzz.

Course No. 1 Getting Started with Programming

I found that the lessons provided in the first course was easy to follow and it had a lot of exercises that assist us to understand the concept of programming in JavaScript. One thing for sure, for each lesson in the topic, we need to follow closely the exercises to avoid typo error as this had happened to me many times that I could not pass the lesson to move on to the next. But each time I persevered by checking my coding and found there were typo error in it. For example, the following if/else statement that I coded with mistake:

if (12 > 5)                                                                                                          { console.log(“I finished my first course”); }                                                                   else {console.log(“I need to study harder”);}

Merely forgetting to type the exclamation mark i.e. “I finished my first course!”, there was an error flashed out when I executed the statement.

Coding Error Message

It was a really fun and enriching experience learning the first course of JavaScript. Next is the project that I am going to commence today…..update coming soon!
