What you'll learn

  • Set up a local environment to run JavaScript code
  • Install libraries and use them in your code
  • Use programs that improve code quality


Real programming experience is achievable only if you can run the code locally on your computer. This requires many prerequisites: setting up the operating system, installing the interpreter, editor, git, preparing the project, etc. Setting up the environment is a tricky topic for a beginner. This course covers the whole process from A to Z. We will go beyond the fundamentals of environment setup and touch on good code management practices and quality assurance.
