I believe that the first thing we should learn after Responsive Web Design (once we move into JavaScript) is how to use the console and debugging statements. It’s invaluable and I think it would solve a lot of the forum posts asking for help.

In particular, teaching how to console.log() and use typeof before even Basic JavaScript would do worlds of good for learners. As they are, the challenges merely ask us to type in console statements without ever seeing their output to the console. It does nothing to show the value of doing that.

I’m assuming that the future will see a test output window that shows more than just failed tests, but in the meantime we can still use the F12 console debugging in our browsers as long as we know how.
