An important aspect of coding in JavaScript is making sure that we are always aware of the scope that we are dealing with. Scope is essentially the reach that something has. In most traditional coding situations there will be a local scope and global scope but JavaScript also has something…

As we know by this point JavaScript has many different built in methods that help us navigate and manipulate whatever we are working with. In a logical move, the methods are typically written to provide a common task that users would otherwise need to write custom function like sorting or…

As we have discussed many times, as a basic fundamental aspect of programming, we use a lot of arrays to hold and potentially manipulate data. A common type of data that we would add to an array is numbers. Obviously, when dealing with numbers one of the things that we…

As we have discussed many times, arrays and navigation through them is a fundamental part of coding in general. Obviously, JavaScript is no exception to that concept and by default has many different built-in functions to assist in that endeavor. …

One of the most important and basic aspects of programming using arrays to store and manage data. Since an array is basically a grouping or listing of data, as one can imagine, navigating through and sorting that data could potentially come in handy. There are a few ways to go…

Object Oriented Programming (referred to as “OOP” from now on)when it comes to Javascript can make a lot of sense. Ruby is a language that at it’s roots was designed to me an extension of the ‘real world’ and conventional conversational languages. Although in my personal opinion, Javascript isn’t quite…

When we look at coding, as in nature and life one can start to see patterns and predictability. Coding in general uses a lot of patterns that we adjust to to suit different needs. On example of this is using something like a for loop so much that we basically…

As we have discussed previously, loops and iterating are incredibly important aspects of coding overall. JavaScript is no exception to this concept and we use loops quite frequently. Loops are great to keep things moving along in an orderly manner but sometimes there needs to be an exception to the…

Last week we talked about the for loop in JavaScript. The for loop is a great way to write a loop that operates for a predetermined amount. This can be especially effective in something like a counter, when we know the total amount of times that we want something to…

Recently when working through a few coding challenges, I realized that sometimes sometimes when things progress, we as evolving people can sometimes lose sight of the fundamentals that we build upon for more complex procedures. I was thinking about this concept while working out efficiency of code. One of the…
