JavaScript Notes & Reference

Hey! Welcome to my Beginner JavaScript Notes + Reference.

These notes are a free resource, based on my Beginner JavaScript Video course . They can be used as a stand alone guide, along with the videos or a quick reference for all the different parts of JavaScript like the different ways to declare a function.

The code written in these notes is available in the Beginner JavaScript repo on github.

Did I miss something? Think you could add a better example? Find a spelling mistake? All the notes are open source and edits are greatly appreciated!

Building modern websites is tough. Preloading, routing, compression, critical CSS, caching, scaling and bundlers all make for blazing fast websites, but extra development and tooling get in the way.

Gatsby is a React.js framework that does it all for you. This course will teach you how to build your websites and let Gatsby take care of all the Hard Stuff™.
