Learning to Solve JavaScript Algorithms as a JavaScript Newbie

Hi, it's me, Rob - Front End Engineer and online instructor with over 15,000 students.

If you are a beginner JavaScript students wanting to prepare yourself for your first JavaScript coding interview then this course is for you!

An algorithm is like a recipe. It takes “inputs” (the ingredients), and performs a set of simple and (hopefully) well-defined steps, and then finishes after producing an “output” (the meal).

Each lesson will present you with:  

  • An algorithm for you to solve. This is like challenging you as a chef to produce a specific meal. 

  • I will share with you the JavaScript tools that may be helpful to solve this challenge. This is like knowing the ingredients, tools and techniques of cooking. 

  • I will then teach you to write out pseudocode, how you would solve this problem in your own words. This is where we will write out the recipe together.

  • Finally, I’ll present you with multiple ways to solve each challenge. Just like there are variations in how to make a meal, so there are a number of ways to solve an algorithm.

  • Check out any of the sample videos for this course to get a feel :) 

    Many algorithm courses will present you with a challenge then have you passively watch them solve the challenge.  This course will guide you as a beginning in breaking down a problem and learning to solve on your own.

    This isn’t the only algorithms course you should ever take. But it should be your first!

    Let’s get cooking with JavaScript!
