Getting Setup

Before you start learning JavaScript, you will need to get your computer set up.

You will need three things to follow along with this book:

  1. A Code Editor. I recommend VS Code which is free and works on Macs and PCs.

  2. A Web Browser. I recommend either Chrome or Firefox.

  3. Practice Files. The files for the course are available on Github here: https://github.com/zgordon/javascript-explained.

In addition, you might enjoy having a codesandbox.io account to share code snippets or just practice coding in the browser.
