Hey James,

Debugging in JS is very weird compared to some languages - here is a reference https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_debugging.asp

Its just called Console not javascript console

Hi James, Here are some nice shortcuts for that:


Cmd + Opt + J


Ctrl + Shift + J

Link to docs: https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/shortcuts

Hope it helps! :)

Thanks, I can get into console but I can't get it to work, can't debug or anything. I have tried watching youtube videos to guide me but of no help. Is there any comprehensive video tutorial on this that you may know of please?

Thank you it is an instructive reference page.
