Ultimate Courses JavaScript Basics

This online course has 63 lessons (7 hours) that introduce the basics of JavaScript. If you're a beginner and want to take a look at JavaScript or would like to brush up on a few things this free course lets you learn at your own speed. All courses are presented in bite size video segments, ranging in length from a few minutes to 15 minutes and include these topics:

  • ES2015 and beyond
  • Variables and Scoping
  • Strings, Numbers and Booleans
  • Conditional Statements
  • Operators

You'll need to create an account to take the class. All you need to supply is first and last name, an email address, a country and post code. The videos are done well on both the audio and video end with clear explanations and examples, though some knowledge of basic terms, such as API that are used but not explained, would be helpful. As is often the case, the site also offers paid courses in JavaScript and other programming languages.

Looks like a good resource. There's also the Grasshopper app from Google, for learning JavaScript on smartphones. Just did a quick search on Gizmo's, and found you had covered it last year: https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/learn-code-your-android-or-ios-device.htm
