What version of JavaScript is Codecademy using for this course?!


#1

I just want to know what type of JavaScript Codecademy is using. Can someone please respond?

'Twill be very much appreciated


Replace this line with your code.


#2

I'm not sure what exact version it is, or if there are different names, but I noticed that it is really different from the one on Khan Academy. I started on that website and got comfortable with it, but then switched to this website and it threw me off.


#3

Same here, also the code doesn't work on Codewars' JavaScript


#4

I tried to use it for one of the challenges and it couldn't recognize the code here :sob:


#5

Oh man that sucks. I wonder how different each version is


#6

I am really not a good programmer, so I can't tell the difference between languages and versions :persevere:but I try without help


#7

Reason: I simply don't have anyone that can teach me without me getting confused :cry:


#8

well if you start the course on here and need help, there will be a lot of people to help you. I could try helping you if you want btw. is there any specific question you have about an assignment?


#9

I am done this particular lesson. But I don't feel like I am getting anywhere, I can really get the hang of anything that I try. If you like you can help me. :slight_smile::thumbsup:


#10

I feel like it's the grade that I'm in that makes me to lack some critical thinking I could be wrong


#11

haha sounds cool. I would enjoy trying to help you with whatever I can but I'm not sure I will know the answer. ask away and Ill see what I can do


#12

Do you know any Python?


#13

I know a little but it definitely isn't a strong point for me. whats up?


#14

I need help to understand how classes work


#15

what do you mean? is there something specifically that you need help understanding?

https://www.codecademy.com/learn/javascript
uses your browser

Incompatiblities are likely things that aren't part of the language at all, like prompt/confirm or perhaps if those other environments provide stuff for drawing - those would be things that they defined before running your code


#17

Is it node.js, vanilla.js or any other type of JavaScript?:confused:


#18

Whatever is under the hood of your browser


#19

What do you mean, Can you please elaborate?


#20

well, the lessons use your browser JS engine. So what JS is used depends on your browser, i think that is pretty clear?
