Practicing with variables, loops, switches, and operators is key to building an authentic web delivered application. In this course, Hands-on JavaScript Project: Solar Calculator, you will create several small projects that explore the features of JavaScript concepts in isolation. To start off, you'll get some practice with functions and loops. Next, you'll brush up on using HTML selectors in conjunction with JavaScript switch statements and explore how to interrogate the DOM. Finally, this course will wrap up with by using what you learned to build a real world solar calculator that calculates the number of solar panels required based on the your monthly electricity usage, where you live, and which panels you select. By the end of this course, you'll be able to apply the principles you learned here to other JavaScript projects you may work on.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello. My name is Paul Chiney. Let me tell you about this great hands on JavaScript course. I believe that the best learning comes when you and I worked together to build projects that you might see in the real world. In this plebiscite course, we will be learning about JavaScript functions, loops, switch statements and gathering information from the document Object model or D O. M. Using an authentic hands on approach. Next, we'll apply everything. We have learned to create a web out that allows customers to calculate how many solar panels they need to power their home. Now, I realize you may not need a solar calculator for your next client, but the information you learn here will transfer to other JavaScript projects you work on as you do. So you will remember what you learned so you can apply it in the future. That's the power of hands on learning. So join me as we work together to learn the fundamentals of Java script
