Is this book is considered for beginner's level in which for a person, who has little knowledge about Javascript, and did not apply it in a practical way?

I have read that some people consider the book for developers who have knowledge about Javascript before and the series will help them to correct some aspects they have about Javascript. Is this true?

Hey there!
Great question! I believe since we are starting with the first book (Get Started, an intro to JS) I think it is suitable for a beginner level!

Hey again! Actually, I need to correct myself here. :) The book is best for those who have some Js experience. If you’ve written JS before that’s helpful!

Thank you for your honesty. What about if my JS skills is not that good? Is it still good to me?

Our club has now started community events, which will be monthly online meetups, and many of them will be for complete beginners with no previous experience! So if you’re new, you should still check us out. The community is free 😊

Hi @Madison

Thanks so much for starting.
I have been trying so hard to grasp JS, and not sure what it is that I am not grasping about it.
I was wondering, will the meetups always be on Sunday, and also what time.
I am in EST.
Thanks

Hey there! Thanks so much for your interest in joining the club, we would be glad to have you!
The first book will definitely always be on Sunday! Once we read the second JS book, it might be on a different day, we are all going to vote.
As for the time, we are currently voting in a poll on what time we will meet! Right now it looks like the most votes is Sundays at 2pm PST / 5pm EST.
Times will be finalized on Tuesday!
Thanks :)
