The Programming Fundamentals with JavaScript

About the Book

Created specifically for new programmers, with no programming experience. This is a true Step by Step book where you will learn the programming fundamentals with JavaScript.

This is the book that will finally show you how you can start to program with JavaScript, not only will you learn the fundamentals of programming but you will obtain the skills necessary to be able to transfer those skills to any programming language.

This book is not just about JavaScript; it's about the programming fundamentals that are required by every programming language. You will learn more than just programming with JavaScript. After you complete this book, you will have the skills and the confidence to start and complete real world software applications.

We will not focus on showing you code that you will copy and paste and then consider yourself a programmer. NO! We will look into the Programming Fundamentals, The Art and Science of Programming, The Programmers Mindset, Key Programming Concepts and over 35+ Unique Programming Challenges. Yes there will be practical steps for you to follow, but the book completely avoids the “type this and it’ll work” style that most programming books use.

The Programming Fundamentals covers the following topics:

  • Mindset (Art of programming, Science of Programming, Programmers)
  • Flow Charts
  • Pseudo Code
  • JavaScript Syntax
  • Executing code with the Console
  • Variables
  • Data Types (Primitive, Composites)
  • Basic Math Operators
  • Logical Constructs and Expressions
  • Control Structures
  • Loops and Iteration
  • Arrays
  • 35+ Programming Challenges

This book is not for you to passively read; it's specifically designed to make you think!

The last chapter of the book introduces advance topics such as:

  • Introduction to Functions
  • Function Composition
  • Recursion
  • Introduction to object Oriented Programming
  • String Mutations
  • Simple Data Structures
  • Advance Number Properties
  • Introduction to Date Objects
  • Introduction to Regular Expressions

Extra Bonus!

When you purchase this book you automatically obtain a 30 day free trial of JSecademy.

JSecademy brings you the worlds bests screen casts. This book includes an entire series of videos that walks you step by step through the entire book.

This is an initiative to bring Computer Science to all!

Once you get through the book you will have the mindset of a true programmer. You will be able to quickly navigate the world of frameworks, learn new programming languages, and get one step closer to creating the next great app.

About the Author

Rick Hernandez
Rick Hernandez

I always had a passion for the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and I knew I wanted to do something to make a difference in the world. I just didn’t know where to start. I was an immigrant in a new country, grew up in a tough environment, and wasn’t sure how I would make it in Computer Science. Along with these roadblocks, I didn’t learn to code until I was twenty years old and I didn’t do well in college originally. Once I had my moment of clarity and realized that I wouldn’t let anything stop me in pursuing my passion in Computer Science, I began to chase that dream which leads me to where I am today.

I enrolled in as many courses as I could find and made the STEM field my new home. I studied Computer Science and obtained world-class skills in OOP Design, Algorithms and Design, Discrete Structures, Software Engineering, Microarchitectures, Advanced Algorithms, Statistics, Database Systems, and Distributed Systems. But I didn’t stop there.

In order to truly make a difference in the lives of others, I decided to begin to write about and teach what I had learned. I began to teach classes at a local college and created an online coding boot camp, which now has over 500+ graduates. I became a published author, I started my public speaking career, I created a scaffolding framework, became a lead developer, won an award for “Best in Class” Bioinformatics Software, and successfully exited three start-ups.

I made my dream growing up, into my actual reality!

I believe that the STEM field goes far beyond my life and skills behind a screen. I want to help others succeed and overcome challenges they may be facing. With the right information and education, I believe that anyone can reach their full potential and make their own dreams a reality. I post each and every piece of content and information with full confidence and ownership. I hold myself accountable to my work and what I share with you, and my hopes for all my work are to create a positive, creative, and fun environment for readers like you.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, giving back to the community, and keeping my mind and body moving through long runs…in fact, I’m currently training for a 50-mile race! I enjoy reading self-development books and finding new opportunities to continue learning and growing. Have questions or want to work together? Don’t hesitate to reach out, I’m always happy to help.

Stay strong,

Rick Hernandez.
