- It easily modifies web pages by inserting tags into the HTML code, customizing elements, requesting data from users, etc.
- It is an appropriate language to start programming. It contains all the basic things: algorithms, object-oriented model, data structure.
We have figured out why JS doesn’t lose its leading positions in programming. Now let’s focus on how to make the life of a junior JS developer easier.
1. Stay Focused
There are various opportunities to study. The first essential thing is to learn the basics. You can try doing it yourself by reading books or exploring sites. Or you can opt for a professional course either online or offline. The choice depends on the budget you have, deadlines you set yourself, and personal preferences. But whatever the choice is, the most important thing is to concentrate and not to let yourself relax.
The more focussed you are the better. If it is difficult for you to pay attention to something for a long time, set an alarm clock for 25 minutes, then make a 5 minutes break, then another 25 minutes. This method will facilitate your study hours. Just don’t forget to put away all the devices that may distract you.
2. Practice More
Practice makes perfect they say. A helpful tip here is to have a code editor on your computer. For example, the Atom editor may work. It’s free, relatively easy to use, and has several useful features. Having a code editor at hand, you may go to GitHub and look for the open-source code there. Download it and explore how it works.
3. Find a Mentor
At some point in your studies, you may feel that you are stuck. A mentor may help in such a situation. It may be someone you know and who is more experienced in the sphere than you are. Unfortunately, such a person is not always there, so you may need to find a tutor, somebody, who will assist you in your JS exploration for money. It is okay to ask questions, as the best way to learn is by mistakes.
4. Use Various Resources
The 21st century is a blessing in terms of resources. You can look for information on sites like Medium, ask for help in various communities, read blogs and forums, as well as watch video tutorials on YouTube. It’s hard to think of a period more abundant and affordable in opportunities to learn.
5. Use Ready-Made Tools
In conclusion, it is worth mentioning that learning is an exciting process. We hope the tips mentioned will help you enjoy it and eagerly dive into the fascinating world of web development.
