you can write it 3 ways to get same output…smh hope it gets easyer

To be able to code as a professional, you need to learn the basic, same goes on math or biology for the person who wants to become a great Scientific. For some reasons, freeCodeCamp chose is the way will teach you JS, and is with the purpose to make it friendly for everyone. People from all the walks of life, any culture, and language.

Let me tell you something I have realized on the past months. Almost all the known developers will tell you the usual path is: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, then something else. I could add something else, perhaps move along ReactJS, use node, and avoid rely a lot on preprocessor, and develop a deep understanding of CSS to make it pretty neat.

If you are no satisfied with the way FFC teaches you JS, I have two options for you:

  1. Our community is an always growing community that welcomes the support from everyone. Your contribution will be welcomed. Please, read the guidelines. I would be happy to be your pal coder if you want team up for a project.
  2. You are free to decide how to learn. There are many resources out there. I am not going tell you which because I am not going give you another sense of frustration. Thank you for trying.

Happy coding.


wait a bit and you will start learning stuff that seems more different. You will still think it doesn’t do anything special.
Once you hit functions, check the documentation about DOM manipulation.
HTML and CSS make the page, yes. But you can’t make an interactive page. JavaScript add the interaction. The math.
Facebook, this forum, twitter… Interactive web pages that do something depending on user input. How? JavaScript. Well, a JavaScript framework, most likely. You can’t do something like this with just HTML and CSS.

javascript is what makes anything function in the browser. if you cant something to happen when something else happens then you have to use Js.

html/css doesnt do anything other than print text and colors.

just like in spoken languages like english, spanish, etc there are many ways to say something that convays the same meaning. as a beginner its important to learn the most basic ways to convay your intentions to the computer. as your vocabulary improves you learn how to convey more meaning with less words

to be fair jS is notoriously loved and hated by many for good reasons. but as long as were working in the browser were stuck with it. there are a few other languages like ruby, python, go, etc that are purposefully made to be easier to read and understand

anyways, starting out sucks for most people but if you stick with it, it will eventually click. trust me


thank u
its clicking just so much code lol but you right stuck with it lol
just hate how so much for so lil out come lol
