### 1.1 Introduction

Hi, folks, welcome to the Modern JavaScript Fundamentals course here on Tuts+. My name is Dan Wellman, and in this course, we're going to learn all of the essential concepts of JavaScript. Yep, all of them. After the introductory first section, we'll take a look at some of the fundamental concepts of the language, like how variables are declared and assigned, and the different data types and operators in the second section. In section three, we'll focus on data structures, and look at arrays, objects, maps, and sets. In section four, we'll see how we can control program execution and take a look at the conditional logic involving if, switch, and ternary statements. We'll also cover loops and iterators here. Section five will see us move on to some more practical aspects of JavaScript, like how to work with the different types of data. And some of the built in APIs like JSON and Math. Ww'll also see how to work with dates and times. Functions are one of the most used parts of the language, as well as one of the most useful. So section six will focus entirely on them. We look at some essential function concepts like scope, closures, prototypes, and the this key word. And we'll see how to work with different types of functions including arrow functions and generator functions. In section seven, we'll look at a collection of different but widely used features of the language like AJAX, promises, destructuring assignments, regular expressions and classes. Section eight will focus exclusively on working with the DOM. And the final section, Section nine, will look at some of the more common web API's like the selector API, geolocation, web storage, and web workers. Don't worry if you've never written a single line of JavaScript before. By the end of the course, you'll be able to work with the language to leverage its strengths and steer clear of its weaknesses. And don't worry if you don't know any other programming languages at all. All concepts required to understand JavaScript will be explained in full. We've got a lot of material to get through, so let's move to the next lesson and get set up ready for the coding examples. Thanks for watching.
