- Variables A variable is a tiny piece of memory that is allocated in your computer. it is used for storing a tiny piece of data, like your name, a number, or several lines of code it should execute.
- Conditional statements These are the little checkpoints in a program that make a computer actually do something. For example, if you are 18 or older you are allowed to vote. This is a real life “conditional statement”. It reads like this: if age > 18: do something. This is exactly how computers know what to do and you will learn how to write these.
- Functions When you write enough code you will eventually end up copying and pasting the exact same code over and over again. A function lets you write a piece of code one time and use it over and over. you will learn about regular functions, immediately invoked functioned, anonymous functions and arrow functions!
- Loops One of the most powerful concepts in computer science is the idea of a “loop”. Basically it lets you do one action over and over again until it is told to stop. you will learn about for loop, foreach loops and while loops!
- APIs and Ajax requests APIs are inevitable in web development. it is important to know how they theoretically work, and how to work with them. you will get hands on experience with a real life API and an Ajax request.
