Learn 30 JavaScript Methods in 12 Days - HQ Cheatsheet given on completion!

UPDATE: Get all my courses, blueprints, and the fun of a vibrant, encouraging coding community over in the Travis Media Community.

One trait of a good developer is a person that can write code, not copy and paste it only. Or at least doing the former much more than the latter.

I was a copy and paste developer for a long time, relying heavily on Stack Overflow code that I would snatch and then alter to meet the conditions of my own purposes.

Now I’m not saying you can’t do this, but you should reach a point where you can produce a lot of code from scratch, talking through it out loud and actually “writing code.”

So in an effort to get better at typing code without looking everything up, AND in an effort to become better acquainted with the syntax and methods of JavaScript, I created this 12 day, blueprint course.

With this course comes a commitment to schedule out 12 days in order to devote 20 minutes to learning individual JavaScript methods one bite at a time; methods like split(), map(), slice(), join(), indexOf(), toString(), reduce(), etc.

You can complete the lessons in sequence, i.e. 12 days, or you can plan to do them every other day, perhaps 3 days a week and complete it all in 4 weeks. It's up to you.

Here's what you should do to get the maximum benefit of this course:

  • Follow along with each lesson and attempt the challenge exercises that I give.

  • Devote 20 minutes of undivided attention to each lesson. Get the feel of typing that method, that array, that syntax from scratch. Build that muscle memory. Get the feel of what the parameters do. Try out your own combinations and tests until 20 minutes is up.

  • Continue on your predetermined schedule until the course is done.

  • Finally, print out a quality copy of the cheatsheet and hang it up by your desk. After going through the methods once, the cheatsheet will make complete sense and will be a valuable resource as you code in JavaScript.
