Learn Javascript with zero prior programming experience

Coursera Project Network via Coursera

Overview

Absolute beginners welcome!

Did you know that programming has one of the highest dropout rates of all undergraduate majors? When approached in the wrong way, learning Javascript can be an incredibly frustrating process. In this guided project, we’ll draw upon 40 years of research into the best ways to introduce new programming concepts in an enjoyable but rapid manner.

Many courses with titles like "Javascript for Beginners" really mean “Javascript for people who know other programming languages but are beginners at Javascript." This guided project will include introductory programming activities that have been extensively researched to provide you the best possible foundation for learning to program using Javascript. More importantly, it's designed to give beginner learners a firm enough foundation in programming that they can feel confident creating their own unique programs from scratch. By the end, you'll be writing your own programs to solve a challenging mystery using complex Javascript loops and conditionals.
