Brackets and Braces.

Is there a simple way of understand what brackets and braces are used in regards to which functions/methods/objects they belong to?

When coding myself i am not placing them or using the incorrect ones and its messing my syntax let alone throwing errors everywhere.

With Arrays thrown in as well there's a lot of times to use them in different situations. ( { [

Ive just completed the introduction to Javascript and programming courses in the Front end course but this is really slowing me down.

Hi Connor

For me, I think after you write a lot of codes you will remember it by yourself.

Don't be so stressed, just keep practice day by day and you'll archive it.

Hope it helps.

Here are some examples:

  • function needs parentheses: function()
  • array needs brackets: arrayName = []
  • a block of code needs braces {} (also use to create object)
