JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Using the Console

Where does the console.log function belong in a .html file?

I think this was explained rather as a side note? It didn't seem important.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script>
document.write("Begin program");
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");

</script>
</body>
</html>

You will want to put it inside of your <script></script> tags along with your document.write. The reason is that console.log() is a javascript method you can call and it works great for debugging.

<script>
    console.log('this is a test');
</script>

If you wanted to see what was inside of a variable:

<script>
    var name = 'Joshua Eagle';
    console.log(name);
</script>

Thank you, Joshua.
