    <p>To define where the string <em>starts</em> and where it <em>ends</em>, you need to wrap it in <strong>quotes</strong> (either single <code>'</code> or double <code>"</code>).</p>

    <ol>

 OMG indeed!</h2>



    <p>
      Since <code>window</code> is the top-level object in the browser, you can access all its properties and methods directly.
    </p>

    <p>
      That's why typing <code>location.href</code> is the same as typing <code>window.location.href</code>.
    </p>

    <p>
      Or why <code>alert()</code> is equivalent to <code>window.alert()</code>.
    </p>

    <p>
      Objects are useful for grouping several properties under the same name and scope, and defining a <strong>hierarchy</strong> in the data. It's like a tree, where each branch can have other smaller branches.

      The first item <code>2 + 5</code> is a number, while the second one <code>'samurai'</code> is a string.

      What about the <strong>third parameter</strong>? It's not a string because it's not wrapped in quotes, and it's not a number either.

 Wonderful!</h2>



    <p>
      By storing our array into a variable, we managed to make our code more <strong>readable</strong>.
    </p>

    <p>
      Although this variables contains a list of several things, we might want to deal with only a <strong>single</strong> item of the list.
    </p>

    <p>
      To access a <em>specific item</em> of an array, you first need to know its <strong>index</strong> (or position) within the array. You then need to wrap this index into <strong>square brackets</strong>.

 Yep!</h2>



    <p>
      Two alert boxes have been displayed, but with different values! That's because between the first call and the second one, the value of <code>my_things</code> has been <strong>updated</strong>: a fourth item, the string <code>'LOVE'</code>, was added.
    </p>

    <p>
      Note that the second time we're assigning a value to <code>my_things</code>, we're <strong>not</strong> using the <code>var</code> keyword: it's because we're editing the <code>my_things</code> variable defined two lines above.

    <p>
      <strong>You only use the keyword <code>var</code> when you're <em>creating</em> a new variable</strong>, not when you're <em>editing</em> one.

    <p>
      Do you remember I told you variables had <strong>methods</strong> too (since they're objects)? Another way to edit an array's value is by using the <code>push()</code> method:

 No ninja here!</h2>



    <p>
      The <code>includes()</code> method checked if the string <code>'ninja'</code> was present in the array. Since it wasn't, the method returned <code>false</code>, a <strong>boolean</strong> value.
    </p>

    <p>
      As a matter of fact, when dealing with booleans, typing the keywords <code>true</code> or <code>false</code> is quite rare. Usually, booleans exist as a result of a function call (like <code>includes()</code>) or a <strong>comparison</strong>.

      Here's a "<em>greater than</em>" comparison:

    <p>
      What if we wanted to handle both cases <strong>simultaneously</strong>? We could write two <code>if</code> statements in a row. But since one statement is the <em>exact opposite</em> of the other, we can <strong>combine</strong> them with a <code>else</code> statment:

 Three it is!</h2>

    </p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        <code>var i = 0</code> is the <strong>initial state</strong><br>
        Before the loop even starts, the variable <code>i</code> is assigned a value of zero <code>0</code>.
      </li>
      <li>
        <code>i < 3</code> is the <strong>conditional statement</strong><br>
        On every iteration of the loop, we check this comparison.<br>
        If it's <code>true</code>, we execute the code in the block.<br>
        If it's <code>false</code>, we exit the loop.<br>
      </li>
      <li>
        <code>i++</code> is the <strong>increment expression</strong><br>
        <em>If</em> the block of code is executed, this expression is executed.<br>
        In this case, the value of <code>i</code> is incremented by 1.

    <h2>Looping through arrays <span class="stamp is-tool">tool</span></h2>

    <p>
      Arrays are a perfect candidate for loops, because in programming we often want to repeat the <strong>same action</strong> for <em>each</em> item of an array.
    </p>

    <p>
      Let's say we wanted to trigger an alert box for <em>each</em> item of an array. While we could write as many <code>alert()</code> statements as there are items in the array (😰), this solution is cumbersome and ineffective! It would be prone to errors, and wouldn't scale at all with bigger arrays.
    </p>

    <p>
      Since programming languages are here to help us simplify our work, let's figure out a better way. We already know a few things:
    </p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        We know how to get an array's <strong>length</strong>
      </li>
      <li>
        We know how to access an array's item by using the <strong>index</strong>
      </li>
      <li>
        We have access to the variable <code>i</code>, which conveniently increments 1 by 1
      </li>
    </ul>

    <p>
      By combining these informations, we can devise the following snippet:
    </p>

    
    <div class="snippet">
  <div class="snippet-contents">
    <div class="language-js highlighter-rouge"><div class="highlight"><pre class="highlight"><code><span class="kd">var</span> <span class="nx">my_things</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="p">[</span><span class="mi">2</span> <span class="o">+</span> <span class="mi">5</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="s1">'samurai'</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="kc">true</span><span class="p">];</span>

    <p>
      One by one, the items of the array were displayed in their own alert box.
    </p>

    <p>
      While using a loop simplifies the process of going through each item of an array, we still had to create a <code>for</code> block <strong>manually</strong> and create a new variable <code>i</code> whose only purpose was to increment after each loop.

 Better!</h2>



    <p>
      Note a few improvements:
    </p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        There is no <code>i</code> variable involved
      </li>
      <li>
        We don't need to access the array's <code>length</code>
      </li>
      <li>
        We don't need to use the <strong>index</strong> with <code>my_thing[i]</code> to access the item
      </li>
    </ul>

    <p>
      Remember the syntax of the <code>alert()</code> function? It was <code>alert(parameter)</code>.
    </p>

    <p>
      If you look carefully, you can see that <code>forEach()</code> has the exact same syntax! It's <code>forEach(parameter)</code> but where the parameter happens to be a <strong>function</strong> that spans 3 lines.
    </p>

    <p>
      So far, we've used a few functions and methods:
    </p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        the <code>alert()</code> function (or window method)
      </li>
      <li>
        the <code>push()</code> array method
      </li>
      <li>
        the <code>includes()</code> array method
      </li>
      <li>
        the <code>forEach()</code> array method
      </li>
    </ul>

    <p>
      We know how to <strong>call</strong> a function, but how do you actually <a onclick="showStep(36);">create one</a>?

 Greetings!</h2>



    <p>
      You've created your first function! It's a simple one but it can teach you a lot.
    </p>

    <p>
      Note a few things:
    </p>

    <ul>
      <li>
        the <strong>name</strong> of the function is <code>greet</code>
      </li>
      <li>
        the <strong>parameter</strong> is called <code>name</code>: it's like a variable, since it acts as a container for a value
      </li>
      <li>
        we're creating a <strong>variable</strong> called <code>message</code> (a string) whose value is <code>'Hey there ' + name</code>
      </li>
      <li>
        what this <strong>plus</strong> sign <code>+</code> does is <strong>concatenate</strong> (or combine) the two strings to make a single longer one
      </li>
      <li>
        we're <strong>calling</strong> the <code>alert()</code> function, and use the <code>message</code> variable as parameter
      </li>
      <li>
        after having created the function, we're calling it with the parameter <code>'Alex'</code>
      </li>
    </ul>

    <p>
      If we break it down step by step:

      </div>
      <div class="stab">
        <div class="stab-label">you <strong>called</strong> the function with a string as parameter</div>

      </div>
    </div>

    <p>
      Unless we call the <code>greet()</code> function at the end, nothing happens! That's because the <code>alert()</code> call is <em>inside</em> the scope of <code>greet()</code> so it's not triggered unless the parent function <code>greet()</code> itself is called!
    </p>

    <p>
      Basically, by <strong>creating</strong> <code>greet()</code>, you're only telling the browser: "<em>Hey! I've created this new function. So if at some point I call it, please execute whatever is inside!</em>".
    </p>

    <p>
      That's why, when you <strong>call</strong> <code>greet()</code> at the end, the browser executes its content, which happens to be calling <code>alert()</code>.
    </p>

    <p>
      It's important to understand that functions are a <strong>2-step</strong> process: creating it first, calling it afterwards.
    </p>

    <p>
      As a matter of fact, the <code>alert()</code> function we've used all along was already created beforehand. It just exists somewhere inside your browser.
    </p>

    <p>
      Anyway, we've already covered <em>a lot</em> in 14 minutes!<br>
      So, <a onclick="showStep(38);">what's next</a>?

    <h3>Learn HTML and CSS</h3>

    <p>
      JavaScript is only one third of what makes a webpage! You also need to know <strong>HTML</strong> and <strong>CSS</strong>.
    </p>

    <p>
      Luckily, I've created <strong>two free references</strong> for you to browse through, so you can learn everything each language has to offer!

    <h3>Read my book</h3>

    <p>
      I wrote a <strong>44-page PDF</strong> called "<a href="https://jgthms.com/css-in-44-minutes-ebook" target="_blank">CSS in 44 minutes</a>" which teaches how to build your own personal webpage from scratch with HTML5 and CSS3.

      As a bonus, the book also includes a small <strong>chapter on JavaScript</strong> in which I talk about functions, conditionals, objects, strings, and even explains how to interact with CSS.
