A Brief Introduction to Modern Javascript

by Mark Mahoney

This is a small collection of playbacks that show the basics of Javascript programming for someone with experience in a C-based programming language like C/C++, C#, or Java. The programs are executed using node.js and all the output is displayed in the console but all of the concepts discussed in these programs are applicable to browser based javascript as well. The playbacks cover concepts such as strict mode, let, const, template strings, arrow functions, destructuring, closures, classes, Promises, and async/await. The material in this book comes from a larger collection of playbacks called, "An Introduction to Web Development from Back to Front" that can be found at https://ourcodestories.com/markm208/Playlist/24
