A rather simple question and I’m very sorry if I’m uninformed
I don’t really know how node.js works either… like I don’t know how my car engine works. But I do know that node.js is used to make my .js code work and that’s enough for me to use it.
I code with VSCode which manages node.js and my code is executed in the Terminal part of VSCode.
It won’t explain how to do it but it will probably reassure you that you can continue… I hope .
Good code to you
Nope not at all, I think you are 1 million percent wrong with this one
I literally cannot even do the first step of the project. It wants me to copy 3 functions into a .js thing, and I have no idea what that is or how to do it, so nope, you can’t just continue on with it.
edit: some additional notes, you mention vscode or vscode terminal. I don’t know what that is and i’ve never heard of it before lol
You don’t know VSCode . I think it’s the (one…) key of your problem.
Let’s setup vscode on your computer and use it for JS and after with node.js
To write js code, just an editpad is enough in absolute.
Let’s see https://code.visualstudio.com/
Hey @designsolver38924, welcome to the forums! While what format64 says is true, in that you can code without knowing Node, I would say it is a very useful skill to have, and will help you write better code, write more interesting code, and understand documentation, etc more. I would suggest that you should probably try to learn at least some Node, because very little learning is a waste of time. If you were really pressed for time, then you could learn only as much Node as required (as in, do a section of the Node course when it comes up in the JS course)…
I hope this helps!
Ah, sorry; I misread your post! Yeah, other than Node, I think that everything else should follow relatively logically from the Learn JS course. I see that you’re doing async; that’s also a good course, as I think some of the Intermediate JS covers async as well. I do notice as well that a lot of the lessons in the Intermediate course are articles, which means that if you get stuck on one concept, it’s easier to move on and read about the next one, and come back to the ones that you’re having more difficulty with.
