II. The Journey Begins: Understanding the Basics
A. Getting Your Feet Wet: Setting Up Your Environment
- Browser: Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.
- Text Editor: Sublime Text, Atom, Visual Studio Code, etc.
- Variables: const, let, var
- Data Types: string, number, boolean, null, undefined, symbol
- Operators: assignment, comparison, arithmetic, logical
- Control Structures: if…else, switch
- Loops: for, while, do…while
III. Taking Baby Steps: Fundamental Concepts
B. Object-Oriented Programming
C. Arrays and Array Methods
An array is a special variable that can hold more than one value at a time. Familiarize yourself with array methods such as push(), pop(), shift(), unshift(), and many more.
A. Deeper Dive into Functions
Just when you thought you knew all about functions, here comes the curveball! Learn about higher-order functions, closures, and IIFEs (Immediately Invoked Function Expressions).
B. Error Handling and Debugging
Learning to deal with errors and debugging your code is as essential as learning to code itself. You’ll learn about
finally statements, along with understanding how to use debugging tools.
V. Working with APIs and Fetching Data
VI. Dominating the DOM
A. DOM Manipulation
Mastering DOM manipulation is your ticket to creating dynamic and interactive web content. Learn to select, append, insert, replace, and delete elements.
B. Event Handling
Delve deeper into the world of DOM by understanding event handling. Get to grips with adding, handling, and removing DOM events.
A. Deep Dive into Objects and Prototypes
You’ve already got your feet wet with objects, now it’s time to swim with the big fish. Understand prototypal inheritance, constructors, and the prototype chain.
B. ES6 and Beyond
Stay up-to-date and learn about new features introduced in ES6 and subsequent versions. Arrow functions, template literals, destructuring, and more are waiting for you.
AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It allows you to use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly.
VueJS, a progressive framework for building user interfaces, is the last stop on this section of the journey. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable.
IX. Testing and Debugging
This phase will help you learn about the importance of writing test cases and debugging your code. Understand various testing frameworks and libraries, like Jest, Mocha, and Jasmine.
X. Practical Application: Building Projects
A. Building Mini-Projects
B. Full-Stack Projects
C. Open Source Contribution
