JavaScript Basics – Treehouse

Have just finished this block on the Front End Web Development track on Treehouse.

My last post was about the Introduction to Programming, which was replaced in this track by the JavaScript Basics that I have just completed. I have to say that I enjoyed the JS Basics more than the Intro to Prog. There was more coding to do in Workspaces and the exercises I found more interesting. I thought the flow of information made more sense, it seemed more logical. Pleased I have done both as it as definitely solidified my learning of the basics in Javascript. And I am enjoying learning JavaScript and playing around with it. Here is the basic quiz I made. I think I particularly like the interactivity and being able to see results straight away that aren’t just lines of of code (like with Python).

One aspect of Treehouse that I really like is that the blocks that you do in a track will count for blocks in other tracks as well. For example, in the Front End Web Development track I have completed the How to Make a Website block, as well as the Introduction to Programming (although this no longer comes up as a block in this track). You get a tick and see that you have done all the stages for that block.

If I look at the Rails Development track, it shows that I have completed the How to Make a Website and the Introduction to Programming blocks. I quite like this as I am ahead in this track already!

Next for me on this track is HTML Forms.

On a side note, Enspiral Dev Academy, which I am starting Phase 0 in March, is now using Treehouse for a lot of its online learning through this initial stage.
