"Hello, World!"

in #stem3 years ago (edited)

After several discussions with my friend @contrabourdon I was intrigued about learning JavaScript and with the recent creation of STEMGeeks community, I decided to give it a try.

I googled for online tutorials and I found site:


The first exercise I did was to write a phrase "Hello, World!" which wasn't hard at all. It goes with the principles of Kaizen which I wrote about in my previous post.

All I had to write was this:

console.log("Hello, World!")

That's it for my first lesson!

Next I will learn about the variables and types.

UPDATE: @javirid advised never forget to use ";" after each command. So here it is:

console.log("Hello, World!");

Thank you @javirid! I'm sure I will be doing lots of mistakes along the way. It's like mistaking sharps with flats on the piano when one just starts learning to play.


Congratulations for completing the "Hello, World!" app in Javascript! I look forward to reading about your journey.

It might be later down the track, but if you plan on using your Steem keys in Javascript applications, make sure you use a test account. You don't want to make mistakes with keys and have them fall into the wrong hands. I use a test account called @contrebasse :)

Thanks for the tip!

I'm just an amateur in JavaScript,
but I'd like to share some of my favourite resources.


I noticed that books usually help to get deep understanding of the subject...
My fovourite ones are

(highly recommended)

Thanks for recommendations! Do you have your Amazon affiliate link to the books? I would gladly use your link to buy...

"Do you have your Amazon affiliate link to the books"
no, I haven't.

I can tell you (on Discord) where to get all those books for free if you want

Thanks! I already ordered the book from Amazon. Looking forward to studying from it

Never forget to end every command with ";". JavaScript doesn't require it, but bad things could happen.

Thanks for the advice! Will update it...
