What's the difference between Javascript Basics and Javascript Foundations? They overlap in content.

Two courses that overlap and have different content. They feel completely different. I like the Basics course more.

My understanding from other forum threads is that JavaScript Basics and the upcoming course JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects are new courses that will be replacing JavaScript Foundations. If you're a beginner at programming or JavaScript, you're probably better off taking JavaScript Basics. According to their release schedule, JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects should be released sometime in February 2015.

Hi Denise,

I would suggest you to follow Javascript Basic which is more recently updated and much better than old Javascript Foundations which is not clear definition, many of us can't get grasp of what Javascript Foundations discussed.
