My Experience with Javascript

When we were first given tho assignment, I admit I was a little frightened because I had never coded once in my life. When I first got on the Code Academy website, I had no idea which code language to choose, so I just randomly picked one and ended up with Javascript, which I soon learned was quite confusing. I was however fairly surprised with how simple the tutorial made the program because when it came to coding, I had no idea what I was in for. The first few steps were fairly easy, prompting me to do simple math or type my name. The tutorial got trickier as I went, but I was able to finish all twenty-eight steps.

Although I would not consider doing more of the tutorials using Javascript on Code Academy, I would consider trying a different coding language through the website tutorials. I found the tutorials simple and easy to understand, even giving me hints when I got stuck or frustrated. If someone was wanting to learn to code, I would highly recommend this website because even with no experience in coding, I was able to pick it up pretty quickly using the tutorial. I think it is a great way for people to gain experience with coding, even if they have none, because of the step by step tutorials that gave review sections throughout. I found these helpful in my experience because I quickly learned how easy it was to forgot the dialect or punctuation needed to get the code to respond correctly. Overall, I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to any other beginners who are interested in learning what coding is all about!
