( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Fellow Monks,

This is not strictly a Perl question, but I know you'll be interested.

I'm teaching a class in JavaScript.

The class would probably be happier if I just gave them Code to Make PopUp Windows, Code To Detect Browsers and so on. But I'm determined to at least give them some idea of what's really happening, to understand what programming is, even if they're not really going to do it ever.

So, if you had six hours to do it in, and you were faced with a class who are at the level where they say "why do we need variables?", what would you attempt to cover?

I'm thinking Variables and Control Structures are the absolute fundamentals, but that's as far as I've got ...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
