let molecule= 0;
molecule += 16;
I am not sure what is going on. I followed the hint, but 'molecule' had no value assigned. But code = hint.
let molecule= 0;
Please post a link to the exercise. The
let keyword is not supported in ES5, the current JS version in the older tracks.
Okay, it is a newer course that implements ES6 and later syntax. The lesson asks for a variable,
changeMe. I don't see where it asks for
Sorry, miss read instructions. Problem solved. Thx.
Where is the new course? I saw three in the catalog.
There may or may not be a token at the end of the URL. Needless, it will be redirected to our own log in token and our own lesson will come up. We cannot see the learners workspace, only our own.
Sorry for being a bit vague with my question above @mtf.
I just tested the link provided by @richg, it seems he is using a different track of JS (maybe the newest one?). I wonder how he got into that track because I can't access it from Catalog or else where.
The lesson content is noticeably different from both tracks available from Catalog.
To quote example,
It introduces 3 data types:
There are three essential data types to know for now, and here is your first test of memorization (don't worry, we will practice):
String: Any grouping of words or numbers surrounded by single quotes: ' ... ' or double quotes " ... ".
Number: Any number, including numbers with decimals, without quotes: 4, 8, 1516, 23.42.
Boolean: This is always one of two words. Either true or false, with no quotations.
it introduces four data types.
console.log('New York City');
Strings — Any grouping of keyboard characters (letters, spaces, numbers, or symbols) surrounded by single quotes ('Hello') or double quotes ("World!"). In the example above, 'New York City' is a string.
Numbers — Any number, including numbers with decimals: 4, 1516, .002, 23.42. In the example above, 40.7 is a number.
Booleans — Either true or false, with no quotations. In the example above, true is a boolean.
Null — Can only be null. It represents the absence of value.
Therefore, my question: is this track only offered to limited users? such as the Pro users/Beta users? Because I noticed that @richg's track is created by @jonsamp , CC staff who also created the new JS course.
If not, how can I access to it other than following @richg's link, cuz I can't see this track anywhere, like it's hidden for me. Just a curious question as I would really like to go through all available JS tracks, I have also followed @alexcraig's topic here as extra exercises.
Thanks for attending to my curious question
Thanks for the clarification. Noted.
I have visited the link and read the blog post. But still, not finding any info about @richg's link,
___________________________________________ here (without introduction word)
If you open the two links, you'd see they are two different lessons.
Sorry if my question sounds too confusing, am trying hard to explain my thoughts.
Hi @jonsamp, thank you for taking time to reply my question. Feel so privileged and honored to get an answer from software engineer himself.
Is there any way that I can apply to join as beta user?
Or is it for users who registered long ago? I just joined CC this month, but very keen to try out new things.
Just want to pour this out, thank you for offering new and updated courses in Codecademy while making the lessons interesting as well.
Got excited with the trivia space facts in JS track, (2017-1969) shows just how far we have come since the moon landing from the first flight in history till sending humans to Mars mission. And the nice cute moon phases, Catch-22 etc.
Really appreciate the efforts by CC staff and the community here especially the helpful moderators.
Right now, we are doing beta testing by random and with the current process, there isn't a way to opt-in to the beta courses.
Hopefully the new JS courses will be rolling out soon (I think in the next month or so, but not 100% sure). Can't wait for you to see them!
@jonsamp Ah, guess the force is not with me
It's okay though. I am very contented with my first two conversations from the software engineer, that's real gem!
Thank you so much for sharing new references as well, it's really hard to land feet properly in vast internet when just starting out without any knowledge. Very much appreciated.
Gotta hurry my pace to catch up with the new JS courses arrival! I actually landed on CC through Code Year (late party), which explains how I started on an older JS track and figuring out there is newer one. Combining both have taught me really well. Can't wait, keep up the great job!
Side note: maybe I should work my way up to tagging @zsims, I saw his name popping out in my email every now and then.
