How to practice it by yourself.

Hello Community, i have a silly question to ask.

It's all great that i am learning all this and the instructor is very good but how do i use all this knowledge meaning which platform can i download to practice it all at that will be similar to the platform we are using to code in this class. I have already downloaded Atom, its bit confusing and i haven't had much time to look into it, but can i practice it all on Atom and how do you guys practice it on Atom or if not Atom where do you code all this knowledge to. Could you please help me out.

Thank you....

There are some great tools out there. Atom is just your text editor - you need something for execution.

I would recommend creating your own development environment - check out the local dev courses in the library.

I find XAMPP a great option - check out the docs or just ask if you'd like some more info.

In addition, here's two Javascript sites that are wonderful for testing ideas (and also don't forget the console in your browsers javascript tool box:

  1. CodePen - my goto favorite

  2. JSFiddle

Just say so, If you'd like any additional details on the above - hope this helps

I use Atom as well, I use Script package to test the behavior of my JS code.

And Atom HTML Preview to preview the entire website and its behavior.
