About JavaScript

In this course you will make use of JavaScript and write a few lines of code. You do not need to know any JavaScript to do this course, and all the code will be provided if you get stuck.

But… the more you learn about JavaScript, the better your games will become. It is an extremely useful coding language, for games, apps, and almost anything these days.

After completing this course you might be interested in taking it further. We encourage you to learn JavaScript - there are some great courses available online. Many of these are free, and very easy to learn the basics. And just knowing the basics will help you so much in making cool games.
