JavaScript Tutorials

Is it me or the Tutorials in JavaScript are hard to understand?

Javascript is harder than HTML or CSS.

If it’s your first programming language(except HTML/CSS) it will be hard for sure.

yeah now, I mean it’s harder but jargons ain’t explained well it feels like, were just shooting randomly on the tutorials.

Can you give an example? Some challenge step where jargons are hard to understand?

the part on iterating, nesting for loops, manipulating complex objects. well I finished those tasks from just the instructions. but, I don’t get it I don’t even know how I did it.

Well, this case is not unique.
Sometimes completing challenge is not enough to understand the concept, I can relate to that.

If that is the case, you can:

do your own research, ‘to google stuff’ is part of the job, important one

ask for help on this forum, I do it myself regularly and it is extremely useful

grab the code from the instructions and experiment with it

// here is one, why is it using increment?
// Basic JavaScript: Profile Lookup

function lookUpProfile(name, prop){
for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
if(contacts[i].firstName === name) {
return contacts[i][prop] || “No such property”;
return “No such contact”;

// Change these values to test your function
var data = lookUpProfile(“Shirlock”, “lastNAme”);


Ok, that’s a good question, but we need new topic for that.

You need:
