Python isn’t the only language out there, and one of the other languages frequently fighting Python for the top of the “most popular” lists is JavaScript. JavaScript is the de facto language on the web but also has a robust toolset on the server side. This course explores JavaScript from a Python programmer’s perspective.

If you’ve never used JavaScript before or have felt overwhelmed by the quick pace of its evolution in recent years, then this course will set you on the right path. You should already know the basics of Python to benefit fully from the comparisons made between the two languages.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Where JavaScript comes from and where it is used
  • How JavaScript’s type system is different from Python’s
  • How to write functions in JavaScript
  • The two ways of creating objects in JavaScript
  • General language syntax in JavaScript
  • Surprises and behaviors in JavaScript that Python programmers wouldn’t expect
