Developer Fundamentals

DAY 1 | Developer Fundamentals

JavaScript and Advanced Concepts

DAY 2

You will deploy a site you've created to Github Pages and will learn how software development teams collaborate using git workflow and tools like GitHub.

The rest of the day you will explore the JavaScript language. You will first pseudo-code a simple application and then work through different parts of its JavaScript implementation.
