Hi, and welcome to ” Let’s JavaScript! “.  

My name is Kauress, and you may know me from the “Introduction to git” class on SitePoint

JavaScript is known as a front end language for
web applications. According to the Developer Survey of 2016 by Stack
Overflow, JavaScript was surveyed to be the most commonly used
programming language on the web.

a new language can be complicated and time-consuming. Let Kauressguide you through beginners’ projects in JavaScript and the DOM! You will code five projects in JavaScript from scratch. Building upon basic concepts and applying them in your projects. The plans you code will allow you to manipulate user input and create dynamic web components of an otherwise static web-page. And by the end of this project series, you would have coded five productivity web-apps in JavaScript

The goal of the project series: 

To teach the basic constructs of JavaScript by coding projects.

The projects: a complete hands-on series and the projects we will be coding are

1. A single operation calculator:  The Calculator allows you to add, subtract multiply and divide two numbers with or without a decimal point. Our Calculator will also have A backspace and bright feature. Our Calculator will automatically start new calculations after the equal to the operator is clicked. Eval has not been used!

2. A to-do list: A to-do list based on arrays and array methods which will allow you to add, strikethrough or delete individual items and additionally you can also add an object using the enter key on your keyboard and then clear the list

3. WYSIWYG editor: A what you see is what you get an editor who will have all the basic features of a standard text editor such as bold, center align, color text, etc. This project includes new topics like local storage, which will allow your draft to be saved even after you refresh the page

4. Pomodoro: A Pomodoro is a productivity method to track work and break durations, the Pomodoro will have functions such as start, pause, and reset. And it will automatically start the break duration after the work period is over
