Javascript fundamentals

I thought I’d write a series of blog posts around Javascript. It’s a funny bugger of a language, but I really enjoy using it.

I’ll assume the reader has some knowledge of the fundamentals of programming (variables, functions/methods, C-like syntax).

Something I found quite irritating when I was learning JavaScript is that it’s practically impossible to find a concise, and beginner-friendly explanation for something. Scope, closures, objects – all of those things are explained in millions of different ways, nearly all of which don’t make sense to a relative beginner.

I consider that my challenge – explaining this stuff in an accurate, concise, and easy to understand way. You can let me know if I’ve failed.

I’ll tag these posts (unsurprisingly) as JavaScript.
