Programming Javascript

PROGRAMMING JAVASCRIPT

"Introduction"
ABOUT THIS LESSON SERIES: This course is intended to teach the basics of coding to children, but it can also be useful to adults. In the case of younger children, it is recommended to go through it together with the parent. The programming language taught here is Javascript, but the concepts can be easily translated to any other language.
What is coding?
Coding, or programming, is giving a machine some instructions to run – one after the other. All the machines you see and use around you are running programs in order to do their work.
Why learn coding?
Learning how to write a program that solves an issue is a process that stimulates both creative and logical thinking. Besides that, coding is a required knowledge in any Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics field (STEM).
When can you start to learn coding?
There is no real age limits to coding. The only requirements are:
  • Know how to read and write (in the latin/english alphabet)
  • Know how to use a keyboard
  • Know how some very basic math (for example, how to perform a sum of large numbers)
