Using Jupyter Notebooks for JavaScript #1: Installation


Jupyter Notebooks is a powerful way to write code for scripting purposes, learning, or building a portfolio of functionality for step-by-step processing. In this video, we take a look at installing the IJavaScript module to use with Jupyter Notebooks so that you can work with JavaScript.

JavaScript is the assembly language of the web, but that hasn’t prevented it from being the punchline of jokes for the last decade or so because of some of its weird quirks, and the various ways in which browsers have implemented it. In this video tutorial series, we’re going to go over modern JavaScript, and why, if you hate JavaScript, you shouldn’t anymore.

    I don't understand you say "I use typescript but since javascript has new features like arrow functions, async/await capabilities, etc… I don't hate javascript anymore" If you use typescript over javascript because you need to have more constrains you should actually hate to code using ESNext because these new features actually make coding more cumbersome if you don't have a typed environment like typescript. Very confusing introduction.
