JavaScript, Planning, Troubleshooting

About this course


Scope and Context are two very important concepts in JavaScript, and they are not the same thing.   Understanding the difference between Scope and Context will help you to write cleaner, more maintainable code and save you time when troubleshooting problems.

In this course, I will take you on a deep-dive into the world of Scope and Context. We will learn not only the difference between these two concepts, but also how to make the right decisions when planning your code and take the right steps when troubleshooting problems.
