JavaScript Tutorial

Welcome to the JavaScriptTutorial.net website! This JavaScript Tutorial helps you learn the JavaScript programming language from scratch quickly and effectively.

JavaScript Tutorial

If you…

  • Are not sure where to start learning JavaScript.
  • Are frustrated with copy-n-paste JavaScript code from others without really understanding it.
  • Cannot add richer and more compelling features to your websites and web applications using JavaScript because you don’t know how to get much out of the language.

JavaScriptTutorial.net is a good place to start.

Section 1. Getting started

Section 2. Fundamentals

  • Syntax – explain the JavaScript syntax, including whitespace, statements, identifiers, keywords, expressions, and comments.
  • Variables – show you how to declare variables.
  • Data types – introduce to you the JavaScript data types, including primitive and reference types.
  • Number – learn how JavaScript use the Number type to represent the integer and floating-point numbers.
  • Numeric Separator– show you how to make the numbers more readable by using underscores as numeric separators.
  • Octal & binary literals – provide support for binary literals and change the way to represent octal literals.
  • Boolean – introduce you to the Boolean type.
  • String – learn about string primitive type and some basic string operations.
  • Object – introduce you to the object type.
  • Primitive vs. reference values – understand two value types in JavaScript, including primitive and reference values, and the differences between them.
  • Array – introduce you to the Array type and how to manipulate array elements.

Section 3. Operators

  • Arithmetic operators – introduce to you the arithmetic operators including addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), and division (/).
  • Remainder operator – show you how to use the remainder operator (%) to get the remainder left over when one value is divided by another value.
  • Assignment operators – guide you on how to use assignment operators (=) to assign a value or an expression to a variable.
  • Unary operators – learn how to use unary operators.
  • Comparison operators – show you how to use comparison operators to compare two values.
  • Logical operators – learn how to use the logical operators: NOT (!), AND (&&), and OR (||).
  • Logical assignment operators – introduce to you the logical assignment operators, including ||=, &&=, and ??=
  • Nullish coalescing operator (??) – accept two values and return the second value if the first one is null or undefined.
  • Exponentiation operator – introduce you to the exponentiation operator (**) that calculates a base to the exponent power, which is similar to Math.pow() method.

Section 4. Control flow Statements

  • if – show you how use the if statement to execute a block if a condition is true.
  • if…else – learn how to execute a block of code based on a specified condition.
  • if…else…if – check multiple conditions and execute a block.
  • Ternary operators – show you how to make a shortcut for the if statement ( ?:).
  • switch – show you how to replace multiple if statements when comparing a value with multiple variants by using the switch statement.
  • while – learn how to perform a pre-test loop that repeatedly executes a block of code as long as a specified condition is true.
  • do…while – show you how to carry a post-test loop that executes a block of code repeatedly until a specified condition is false.
  • for loop – learn how to repeatedly execute a block of code based on various options.
  • break – learn how to prematurely terminate a loop.
  • continue – show you how to skip the current iteration of a loop and jump to the next one.
  • Comma operator – guide you on how to use the comma operator in a for loop to update multiple variables at once.

Section 5. Functions

Section 6. Objects & Prototypes

Section 7. Classes

  • Class – introduce you to the ES6 class syntax and how to declare a class.
  • Getters and Setters – define the getters and setters for a class using the get and set keywords.
  • Class Expression – learn an alternative way to define a new class using a class expression.
  • Computed property – explain the computed property and its practical application.
  • Inheritance – show you how to extend a class using the extends  super keywords.
  • new.target – introduce you to the new.target metaproperty.
  • Static methods – guide you on how to define methods associated with a class, not instances of that class.
  • Static Properties – show you how to define static properties shared by all instances of a class.
  • Private Fields – learn how to define private fields in a class.
  • Private Methods – show you how to define private methods in a class.

Section 8. Advanced Functions

Section 9. Promises & Async/Await

  • Promises – learn about Javascript Promises, what they are, and how to use them effectively.
  • Promise chaining – show you how to execute multiple asynchronous operations in sequence.
  • Promise composition: Promise.all() & Promise.race() – learn how to compose a new promise out of several promises.
  • Promise.any() – learn how to use the JavaScript Promise.any() method to return the first Promise that fulfills.
  • Promise.allSettled() – accept a list of promises and returns a new promise that resolves to an array of values, which were settled (either resolved or rejected) by the input promises.
  • Promise.prototype.finally() – execute a piece of code when the promise is settled, regardless of its outcome.
  • Promise error handling – guide you on how to handle errors in promises.
  • async / await – write asynchronous code in a clearer syntax.

Section 10. Iterators & Generators

  • Iterators – introduce you to the iteration and iterator protocols.
  • Generators – develop functions that can pause midway and then continue from where they paused.
  • yield – dive into how to use the yield keyword in generators.
  • for…of – learn how to use the for...of loop to iterate over elements of an iterable object.
  • Asynchronous iterators – learn how to use async iterators to access asynchronous data sources sequentially.
  • Async generators – show you how to create an async generator.

Section 11. Modules

  • Modules – learn how to write modular JavaScript code.
  • Dynamic import – show you how to import a module dynamically via the function-like object import().
