Scope, hoisting, event loop
A bit more advanced concepts, but essentials to know if you want to write programs that run correctly as you want.

In this unit I collected a whole range of topics that I would call “moderately complex”, so not something I would explain on day 1 to a beginner JavaScript developer, but extremely important.

Knowing those topics very well can be a huge difference in your day to day work, transforming frustration and confusion into productive and efficient code.

We’ll talk about scope, shadowing, hoisting, closures, and the event loop.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
